    Something in here for ALL men

    I got this book because I like reading Lee Grady¿s blog on the Charisma site. I like his take on different topics and wanted to see what he had to say on the topics covered in this book. This book presents Grady¿s passionate Biblical approach to the real issues that 21st century men face. What comes through to the reader is a call to genuine masculinity that is not machismo or chauvinistic. When I first looked at the chapters titles of the 10 Lies listed in the book I thought to myself, ¿I already know this stuff.¿ Yet, I found that each topic is so well covered that even people who-already-know-this-stuff will find helpful insights. If you are getting this book as a gift or for a men¿s group keep in mind that some of the chapters are really really deep. It¿s a great book, but if you are sharing it with others be prepared then also to have serious conversations about abuse, addiction, brokenness, and sin. Grady writes in a way so that he zealously gets to the root of the issues so that men in their brokenness can apply Biblical truths for healing and restoration. Grady is unapologetically Pentecostal, but Christians of various faith expressions and denominations can benefit from this book (I am not at a Pentecostal church and I got a lot out of this book). This book is also great for seekers of faith.
