    straightforward, revolutionary, essential reading

    A WAKE UP CALL TO ANYONE LIVING A MEDIOCRE EXISTENCE! With the 'diabolical rates of divorce, homelessness, single parent families, rape, and other abuses directed toward women (usually borne from a deep 'father wound' and deep set oppressive misunderstanding of the role of women ) it is clear there is some kind of medicine required to turn the hearts of men and perpetuation of this violence. Psychologists will argue it is in the mind, and will - ultimately we have to go to a more profound level...the spirit of unregenerate man. As men we are taught to be tough and whilst little girls learn romance boys learn warfare and bravado. There are divine qualities that need to be built into our children if we are to change the world. These changes ultimately have their conception within the home (being a microcosm of society). In order for any excuses or blame to be avoided, the real source of why these problems exist does fall upon the head of the family - Biblically this is the man (however because he hasn't found his role properly is usually usurped by his dear wife)... This book will always challenge and always enlighten, they say application deepens revelation, if taken on board will definitely yield solid results. Don't bother opening this book unless you are seriously wanting to take responsibility for your actions and face your real state! I have come to respect and admire Mr Cole for his willingness to take on this most fundamental of subjects for our time...a time when certain very concerning gender trends and tolerances are seaping into the secular (God knows what results this will throw back) - the fruit of not truely facing the direct source. We would all like to think that our existence on earth has to have a deeper meaning... follow this book through and you will be assured divine results... again not always comfortable, but so what! it is the right direction! in essence i would firmly recommend this book as it is a bomb in the camp of the spiritual enemy of mankind - what recommendation for a lifetime of victorious living! God Bless you as you obey and receive the benefits (a la Psalm 103!!)

    Am I Living Up To My Capabilities?

    In the Book Maximized Manhood it explores the concept of asking the question that as a man (or woman), are you living up to the standards of God? This book is a must read for any man/boy between the ages of 14 and up that is a Christian and willing to let God, Jesus Christ, and The Holy Ghost work in his life. It covers topic of relationships, lust, and many many other topic that still plague man today as it plagued the Jewish community in Exodus. I strongly recommend this book because it has been food for my soul and has helped strengthen my Christian Walk. This book is great for a devotional by reading one chapter a day out of it.
