Strong: Unlocking the Mysteries of Manhood

Manhood is awesome.


The foremost command in the Bible to men is to “be strong.” Why do they need to be strong? Why is weakness a man’s greatest problem?  Why did God initiate a physical fight with Jacob? Why did God let so much suffering befall Job, Elijah, and Jonah? Why does Paul tell the men in the Church to “act like men and be strong”?

Strong is a groundbreaking book that explores in-depth what the Bible really has to say about men and manliness and seeks to answer these difficult questions about weakness and strength. With over 1000 scriptural references, countless historical references, and a close examination of the Greek and Hebrew texts, Strong is not just another fashionable book for men. It’s the ultimate resource for a man to truly find greatness in his life.
