After reading the thought-provoking forward by retired Lt. General William G. Boykin, I was faced with the author's words that this book is "Not for girls!"
Being the compliant that I am, I immediately put the book down. But, I had promised to review this book, so here it is.
Ladies, this book is not for us. It is definitely for our men. I appreciated the author's thoughts about what a manly man "looks like", and I believe that we need to be encouraging help-meets and let our men be just that. Mr. Mansfield does not point the blame at anything or anyone that may be causing this era of weak men (my opinion... and mind you that is certainly not all men). Instead I found this book to be a call to action for guys to look to the manly, noble role models in the Bible and elsewhere, and to take personal responsibility for their actions and decisions.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I was provided a free copy of this book by Thomas Nelson Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion.
