Good Discussion Maker

Wanted to start up a men's small group at church. Bought the book and read a couple chapters. The small group started with 6 people and we read the first chapter. Had about a 1.5 hour discussion. We're meeting for the second time and the group is now at twelve people. The book is great as it compares modern issues with biblical figures. Has reviews and questions at the end of each chapter. It is great to get men to talk about things we normally won't talk about. Highly recommend for personal or group study.

Best self-help book I have ever read.

As stated in my title, and the prior 2 reviews - which sum up everything about the book, this is AWESOME! History from the bible applied to today's world. History is nothing if we cannot learn from the mistakes of our & others' pasts - which is what this book tries to do. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! Follows a similar format to that of the GREAT BANQUET 72 hour 'retreat' aka Walk of Emmaeus - but touched home even closer to me - because each of the biblical figures represented were hand chosen by GOD to do his works - AND THEY STILL SCREWED UP!! Most were, nevertheless, still considered great, and we can learn how to follow their examples!! And also correct ourselves from learning from their mistakes before or after we have fallen prey to the great deceiver!!

Great for Men who want to avoid the pitfalls of life

I am using this as the basis for a men's sermon series in my church. It deals with real issues that face men every day. Not only have I personally been challenged, I have been better able to recognized destructive behavior in some of the men I counsel with and help them better understand how they are self-destructing. The discussion questions help bring it home in terms of applying the biblical principles addressed. This would be great for personal edification, a group study, or as a topical sermon series.

Tackling Twelve Tests, Trials, and Hazards Common to Men

Jeffrey E. Miller, Senior Pastor at Trinity Bible Church in Richardson, Texas, examines twelve struggles common to men today in light of lessons we can learn from men of the Bible who faced these same challenges. The book is divided into twelve topical chapters exploring the trials faced by men, in their role as husband, father, leader, or friend. Included in the book are questions for individual study or group discussion. These thought provoking reflection questions direct the reader to consider action steps that can be taken to live as a better man. Additional assignments include scriptures to memorize and Bible passages to read. These assignments further enhance the use of this book as a study tool. I personally found the chapters on "Misplaced Priorities" and "Insensitivity" particularly helpful to me as a husband and father. I was also made aware of the danger of being guilty of "Manipulation." I learned from the lessons of Abram's life that I have a need to trust God more, regardless of difficult circumstances. The book also provides background material for Sunday school teachers, and pastors. The contemporary, practical lessons offer a fresh approach on Christian living for contemporary men based on the teaching of the Bible. Whether dealing with "Unresolved Anger", "Discontentment", or "Lust", there are lessons for the Christian Businessman, for the wayward college student, or for a pastor or church staff member. Each chapter begins with a selected quote from a well known author or Christian leader that directs the reader to consider the deeper meaning of the material being considered. Jeffrey Miller articulates clearly Christian principles through stories and illustrations from the lives of others that help the reader avoid these common hazards, by learning from the mistakes of others. The chapters in this book are excellent material for casual discussion or formal study. This is a book about men for men, a model for how to overcome twelve challenges all men face.
