Overview

You already know it’s not easy being a single man in this culture today. But it is easy to be overwhelmed, to feel helpless and hopeless about living by God’s high standards for singles. It’s easy to cave in to the pressures of this sex-soaked world and accept defeat–blaming the media, the culture, even girlfriends who don’t know how tough it can be.

But many men have read books like Every Young Man’s Battle and Tactics and have committed themselves to stand strong and pure in the power of God, and to go on the offensive against the onslaught of negative stereotypes. Some have suffered. Some have fallen. But many have experienced victory–and you can be among them.

What makes those committed men so desirable to women? Be Her Hero is their motto. From best-selling author Fred Stoeker, along with his son Jasen, come the straightforward insight and real-life examples you’re looking for to help you take personal purity to its logical conclusion. Here’s straight truth with irrefutable evidence of what makes an ultimate hero to women who long for men of faith–men who stand by their convictions and make their world a safer and better place.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Will the real men please stand up? These two brothers of mine, father and son, are standing up in purity, courage, and God-honoring strength. I am proud to know them! Read their story and be encouraged by encountering these modern-day heroes.”
Rebecca St. James, singer, songwriter, musician

“This story is real. Fred and Jasen are indeed heroes in our time. And through God’s grace, you can be too!”
Dr. Gary Rosberg, founder and CEO, America’s Family Coaches, author of Secrets to a Lasting Love, and co-founder with wife, Barb, of TheGreatMarriageExperience.com

Hero is my favorite of Fred’s books by far. Its keen biblical insights and practical applications are exactly what we need today. I can’t stop going through it again and again! I have read many books on dating, but Hero easily tops them all. I urge you to read Hero. This book is that good. Fred and Jasen, thanks for being the kind of men many of us want to be.”
Heath Adamson, youth evangelist, The Seven Project

Hero is not just another book about dating or purity. As I finished Hero, I came to the realization that this book is truly a message from God’s heart to ours. I couldn’t put it down. I was deeply challenged and inspired by Jasen’s words, but most of all, I felt hopeful. As you read this book, I know you’ll be changed forever.”
Michael O’Brien, former lead singer of Newsong

“God has sounded the battle cry for the hearts of men. Do you hear it? Will you experience the powerful thrill of what it means to be a real man? She needs a hero. Let Fred and Jasen challenge you to become the hero she needs you to be.”
Matt Markins, director of the D6 Conference

“In a culture nearly devoid of genuine heroes, I’ve had the honor to witness a few. Fred and Jason Stoeker are such men. Every man on planet Earth needs to read and apply the biblical lessons in this book.”
Clay Allen, pastor, president, and founder of AVENUE Resource and author of Operation Destiny

“Inspiring. Captivating. Thoroughly biblical. Fred and Jasen Stoeker cry out to the men and women of our generation and challenge them to joy-filled holiness. Hero invites us into the God-centered romance I long to see play out again and again.”
Paul Sabino, family pastor, Cornerstone Church, Ames, Iowa

“I love Hero! As I began reading this thought-provoking book, tears filled my eyes and hope captured my soul. Hero delivers some jarring ‘reality’ reading, living proof that whatever the enemy means for harm, God uses for good. Anyone reading these pages will be thoroughly challenged to become a true hero.”
James A. Montera, president of Mercy Seat Ministries Midwest, Inc. and founder of Refuge School of Ministry

    Step up to the challenge, men!

    Review by Jill Williamson

    I was so excited by the wisdom inside the pages that I had to share it. These guys know what they're talking about.

    I'm a girl, but I can see how hard it is being a guy in the world today. Everywhere you look the world is calling you conform: get a girlfriend, have a good time, be like everyone else, be cool. I can only imagine how hard and hopeless it must feel to strive to live up to God's high standards for relationships. Well, if you're looking for help, for answers, for the truth about what women really want from a guy, look no further. Fred Stoeker and his son Jasen have the answers for you. They will tell you exactly what you need to know to become a hero in the world today.

    The world has few true heroes. You know, those awesome knights in shining armor? Girls dream about such a man from a young age. I used to think this dream was wrong, that encouraging girls to wish for a guy like that was hopeless in today's world and only set girls up for a broken heart. The only reason I was right was because guys don't know how to be a hero and girls don't know how to hold out for one. Jasen Stoeker set me straight. There is always hope, and if a girl trusts God and waits for that hero, God will provide.

    Guys! You've got to read this book! Oh, how I wish I'd known men of such integrity and honor when I was in college. Know that whether you are a young man just starting to be interested in girls, or a guy who has messed up a lot, there is so much hope for you. You can still train to be a hero. You can still learn what it takes to put on the armor, take up the reins of manhood, and fight for what is good and true and pure in this world. I have great respect for any man who would take a chance, read this book, and make the sacrifices necessary to be a true hero. Step up and take the challenge, men! We girls are waiting for some real heroes! Highly recommended!

    Must read guide for Christian young men and their parents

    Hero by Fred & Jasen Stoeker should be required reading for every Christian young man and his parents. Fred, author of Every Man's Battle, faced a battle against the flesh that had been passed down from grandfather to father to son, until one day looking into his two-year old son Jasen's eyes, he decided that the generational curse of adultery and pornography would end with him. Because of Fred's decision, Jasen made his own decision to keep himself pure until marrying the woman God led him to, which didn't exactly make him the most popular guy in high school. Despite temptation and peer pressure, Jasen didn't even kiss his wife Rose until the minister gave them permission during their wedding ceremony. The authors attack the strongholds of deceit that society has instilled in our brains about sex: women want it just as much as men, finding out if you are sexually compatible before marriage is necessary, God gave men a sexual desire so He of course allows them an outlet, and other lies. Jasen talks about his walk through high school and college, facing derision and coming out a strong man of God on the other side. His wife Rose also offers her point of view on what a true hero of God looks like. Their revelations about how society has warped even Christians' view of sex are startling and enlightening. It's a powerful book with a must-read message
