I have been reading The Book of Man by William J. Bennett. This book was not what I expected. There was so much in it even to the point of being overwhelming, but it is very obvious that a lot of research has gone into its development. The topic is commendable and timely. I sought out this topic for reading as I keep seeing in my life men that are walking away from their wives and children and abandoning their Godly call. It saddens me.
That being said, I do recommend it to men that desire to see what it means to be a man, to men that desire to help to raise their boy to be a man. It mixed poetry with profiles of men that accomplished huge things, to sports legends, to generals. Men of all walks of life, and all social status’ speak into the lives of men today with the same impact that challenges each of us now to step up. I found the book challenging, and encouraging.
I was provided a complimentary copy by Booksneeze for review.
