I really dig this book Holton's premise is that so much of what we consider manliness is just males searching for a way to tell the world that he's a man Holton goes about defining a simple teachable system for describing a man rooted in integrity and Scripture Honestly in today's day and age which is full of what CS Lewis described as men without chests we need men and boys who have read this book Get a copy for yourself and one for your sonbrotheruncleneighborThanks for taking the time to read this review It was a decent book but definitely not the best book on manhood I have read One thing that is striking is that the author says he spent years studying manhood in Scripture but he uses surprisingly little scripture in his arguments except for a few verses here and there that are generally interpreted properly in their context but probably over interpreted for the subject matter The book was anecdotal then biblical But because of God's grace working in his life probably he still produced a pretty good representation of biblical manhood Maybe all that time spent in Scripture did not impact him exegetically but it certainly did spirituallyHis emphasis submission to the lordship of Christ and the rejection of passivity is key to biblical manhood Further his contention that we were not placed on this Earth for our own happiness but to serve others in submission to our Lord is at the heart of biblical manhood So he did do a pretty good jobOne concern I would have for the book is that all of his stories could potentially leave one with the impression that if we are not taking huge risks we are not being men The author does not say this but his background and rather extreme story might suggested to the undiscerning readerAll in all would I suggest this book for someone to read? Yes but it would be perhaps 3rd or 4th on my list of books to read on biblical manhood Glad I read it I read some of the reviews and just had to read this book afterwards I was impressed and will be reading it for a second time again with my Son Everyone should read this Wonderful handbook to help raise spiritually healthy boys and to help girls learn how to recognize the right man instead of going after the wrong guy MAKING MEN by Chuck Holton is the kind of book that dads and men need to read every so often You can do a great job being a fatherand a husband and a man but sometimes you just need a refresher You need to be reminded about what the Bible says about being a man and being a leader This book is perfect for thatHolton's acronym for being a man is SHAPE A chapter is devoted to each of these letters You'll get chapters titled Submit Assess and Improve Perish and Provide and Engage Holton uses plenty of scripture to reinforce the Bible's view of what a man should be and he includes several storiesThis book isn't directly a book on being a father to your boys but it can help with that It is about being a man that is Godly and capable of leading his family or others This is a short easy read that should help and encourage any man that reads it When starting this book given to me as a gift I thought it would primarily be about parenting boys However it is just as much if not about what kind of man a father should be In other words it's about manhood primarily and that translates into strategies for parenting boys When you read of the authors background Army Ranger and successful stockbroker among many other things you think it is going to be one of those kinds of books but he starts by identifying the ways we can falsely seek manhood in things like that Overall this is a very good book on manhood The author's definition of honor is particularly helpful Single MomSingle MomI choose this book for my son not having a male role model I worry if I'm giving him the right tool to become a man I find to many are still boys in today's society I found the I formation very helpful and wish I had read it before I choose who would be his father Thank you for your endless work I hope all families would take the time to read it great book well worth reading This extremely insightful book needs to be read by anyone who wants to raise their boys to be great men Please read this Great book for guys who desire to be Men There are plenty of Bible references Don't write it off as preachy however The wisdom is universal
