Overview

A fresh and funny--yet utterly serious--book about men and midlife, from the bestselling author of the Every Man's Battle series, Stephen Arterburn. Written for every man who is in or near midlife, it examines the roles men inhabit throughout their lives and shows how God uses those roles to build the qualities that make a truly good man. This practical and encouraging book gives men the tools to make the rest of their lives matter.

Stephen Arterburn and coauthor John Shore, both men in midlife, speak men's language. They're straightforward, not sugarcoating the issues of aging, fear of death, and feelings of loss or failure. They offer hope and show readers how they can live God-honoring significant lives. This is a book that pastors will want their men's ministries to read, accountability groups will discuss, and wives will buy for their husbands.

Kenny Luck
"Steve Arterburn is the most qualified man I know to speak to the life transitions of men. I have seen him live out the principles of this book with my own eyes and sought, through imitation, to navigate my journey as a man in similar ways. He has never done me wrong as a man. Join me!"--(Kenny Luck, Men's Pastor, Saddleback Church. Author of Every Young Man, God's Man; Risk; Dream; and Fight)
Samuel Adams

Jim Burns
"Every page of this book spoke directly to me. I laughed out loud, while at other times got really, really quiet and reflective. Since reading this book I can't stop thinking about it. It's helpful, practical, challenging, and worth your time."--(Jim Burns, PhD, President, HomeWord. Author of Creating and Intimate Marriage and Confident Parenting)
Bob Buford
"Vulnerable, hugely personal, unconventional, funny, engaging, provocative, unvarnished, sometimes raw, Steve Arterburn gets behind the eyelids and under the skin of men in midlife. Trust me, you won't lose interest."--(Bob Buford, Author of Halftime and Finishing Well)
