Overview

An unseen war is raging for the hearts of men and threatens to destroy the warriors God created men to be. Cultural bullies are whispering dangerous messages: “You are as important as your job title.” “Your family doesn’t really need you.” “You are what you own.” “Sex will medicate your pain.” Temptation is but a mouse click away, economic pressures weigh heavily, and the demands of work and family are a constant double bind. In the midst of this war, it’s easy to lose your spiritual focus and feel like you’ve failed.

In Six Battles Every Man Must Win, author Bill Perkins offers hard-earned wisdom on how you can reset your sights and prevail in the challenges of life. With refreshing honesty, Bill chronicles his own struggles with disappointment, failure, and depression and tells how the little-known biblical story of David’s band of “mighty men” transformed his life.

In this motivating and practical book, you’ll discover how a small band of misfits and losers became warrior heroes. Bill Perkins shows how God helped him to win the battles in his own life and strive to be a mighty man of God with his eye on the target—and tells how you can, too. Tyndale House Publishers

    What an amazing book. Every man or boy seeking to be a man should read this. It is remarkable! The truths in this book are amazing, and if you've ever heard of The Mighty Men, this is definitely a must read for you.

    No fluff....just the truth

    I found this book very honest and to the point. I am still very young in my christianity so this book was easy for me to comprehend but I don't think it is written to basic for a more seasoned christian. I personally could relate to the chapters regarding sexual temptations, guilt and anger. The author gives the reader a clear picture of how clever, seductive and relentless Satan is in the pursuit of our souls. I recommended this book for our men's meeting and we will be starting it in October. I know all the other guys will walk away with a new look on our temptations and how to deal with them.
