Mansfield's Book of Manly Men

Author: Stephen Mansfield
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
November 2013
ISBN: 978-1595553737
Genre: Christian Life / Man’s issues

Witty, compelling, and shrewd, Mansfield’s Book of Manly Men is about resurrecting your inborn, timeless, essential, masculine self.

The Western world is in a crisis of discarded honor, dubious integrity, and faux manliness. It is time to recover what we have lost.

Stephen Mansfield shows us the way. Working with timeless maxims and stirring examples of manhood from ages past, Mansfield issues a trumpet call of manliness fit for our times. 

“My goal in this book is simple,” he says. “I want to identify what a genuine man does—the virtues, the habits, the disciplines, the duties, the actions of true manhood—and then call men to do it.”

MANSFIELD’S BOOK OF MANLY MEN is a book I am looking forward to giving to my son for Christmas. He is the one who discovered Mansfield’s website and frequently visits it, hoping to gain wisdom from a biblical perspective on how to be a man of honor. I knew when I saw this book that he would absolutely love it.

This book is hardcover, very masculine looking, and stock full of quotes from preachers, bible, maxims, and more. There are three different parts in this book:

Part I includes the “beginning” or introduction, and several maxims.
Part II includes different traits such as Honor, Friendship, Quest, Humor, Integrity,                   vision and more
Part III includes quotes, and lists ten essential books and movies for men

If you are looking for the perfect book to give the young man in your life, especially one who is striving to be someone, then MANSFIELD’S BOOK OF MANLY MEN. $19.99 Hardcover, $12.99 kindle. 304 pages.
