Overview

“A man cannot be passive about what Scripture tells him to do for his family and expect to be found faithful to God in the end. He must see with spiritual eyes and realize that future generations are directly impacted by his daily decisions.”
—The Resolution for Men

The Resolution for Men is the inspiring book born out of Courageous, a new film by the makers of Fireproof coming to theaters nationwide in fall 2011. The movie, which presents a powerful story of strong male leadership, is an emotionally charged wake-up call to fathers whose influence upon their children and society is immeasurable. The Resolution for Men follows to challenge men of all ages to become as bold and intentional about embracing their responsibilities as leaders of their homes, marriages, and children.
Written by Stephen and Alex Kendrick, screenwriters of Courageous and authors of New York Times No. 1 best seller The Love Dare (five million copies sold), The Resolution for Men strategically inspires men to reconcile with their past, re-engage in the present by taking full responsibility for their wives and children, and then move forward with a bold and clear resolution for the future. Written in partnership with the movie and Priscilla Shirer’s new book, The Resolution for Women, it is designed to inspire a revolution.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

If Courageous the film is a launching pad for leading a Christ-centered family life, these matching husband-and-wife books are the instructional manuals for keeping that heavenly plan on course. The Resolution for Men was written by Stephen and Alex Kendrick, the brothers who wrote the movie's screenplay, and the guide for women was penned by public speaker and author Priscilla Shirer.

    Fantastic!

    Excellent book that is a perfect read after having seen the movie Courageous. Challenges men to be better fathers and really makes you think more about what kind of father you have been. The country is in despair because we have lost sight of the lord and principles like these. A must read for those who want to be a real man.

    more from this reviewer

    An Absolute MUST READ!!!!

    This is an absolute MUST READ for any Christian father, father-to-be, husband or husband-to-be -- and for every mother, mother-to-be, wife and wife-to-be. Very rarely do I get this excited about a book - and I have many on my bookshelf!

    As families continue to crumble and fall and ex-life partners struggle to figure out why, it is imperative that the Church reinforce the roles of husband and wife that are very clearly laid out in the Bible and that husbands and wives take up the challenge of those roles instead of trying to define and live out their own as based on what society deems right and popular.

    I would very strongly recommend that both husbands and wives read both the Resolution for Men and the Resolution for Women so that each can hold the other partner accountable for actions, inactions and ways of thinking that are not in keeping with God's ways and teachings.

    Our families and children need strong fathers more than ever. Fathers/husbands that know the difference between loving and respecting and cherishing and being dominating and abusive and manipulative. Fathers, contrary to popular opinion, are integral to raising healthy, well-rounded kids, and to keeping a marriage together. When fathers negate their God-ordained role or abuse that role for purposes that God never intended, then families suffer. "A man cannot be passive about what Scripture tells him to do for his family and expect to be found faithful to God in the end." (page 3)

    This is a lesson that every man, and every young man who has visions of being a husband and father in his life needs to read.

    Don't fully agree with the writers stance

    A convicting book. Pits responsibility for the social climate on men. The author casts an intimidating vision of what it means to leave a legacy. I don't agree with all he asserts, but thought provoking none the less.

    EPIC

    This book is designed for a group setting. I have now started leading my second group, the first was life changing. This book is ment to be shared with other like minded men who desire to be men of courage. It takes courage to step out of our selfish and self seeking ways and follow Jesus. To be men of resolution, accountable in our faith. I hope many other men of all walks of life pick up this book and simply say to themselves "I WILL". God bless all of you who do.
