It is a documented fact that men do not read much these days. However, it is also true that it is impossible to grow in the Christian life without reading the Bible and nearly as difficult to grow spiritually without reading good books. The book recommended here will help fill the void. It is eminently readable, containing many illustrations and quotations to hold attention, but it is also filled with Scripture and biblical principles that render it valuable and inspiring.

Kent Hughes was for many years senior pastor of college church in Wheaton, Illinois -- the home church of Wheaton College. He has written extensively and is series editor for the popular Preaching the Word commentaries. This particular book challenges men to exert some "holy sweat” to apply various disciplines to their Christian experience. You will find chapters on disciplines such as purity, marriage, fatherhood, friendship, prayer, integrity, leadership, ministry and several others. Kent Hughes and I were colleagues many years ago at Talbot Seminary. He is a man's man who has become one of the leading Bible teachers of our day. I can guarantee that you will enjoy reading this book, but more importantly, your life will change as you put into practice the biblical principles and therein. Take a dare, guys! Read a book!
