Overview

"Are you ready to Man Up? According to national statistics, over fifty percent of you working men are unhappy in your jobs. In Star Man, author Gary Combs asks: Is it your work that really bothers you? Or, could you be wrestling with a mixed sense of purpose or conflicting priorities that keep boiling inside? If you are among the men who tend to barricade themselves in their man-caves, turning inward and seeking their own solutions, then what is really holding you back?

Star Man tackles these questions head-on from a uniquely male perspective. Tracing five major areas of a man's daily life - love relationships, family focus, work life, community involvement, and health issues - Combs develops a balanced approach to ensuring that all five areas are given their rightful place. In each aspect, he moves you quickly to a self-assessment of your everyday questions:

1. My days are so full of "busyness" Who has time to think anymore?

2. I keep saying, "Someday I'll _____." Will that day ever come?

3. How can I make sure it does?

Filling each area of daily concern with personal anecdotes and humorous man-talk, often poking fun at the way men speak (and the way women hear), Star Man concludes with the thought provoking point that every man is looking for some greater meaning. With conviction, Combs suggests that God is acting at the center of all that a man does, whether or not he realizes it. Star man concludes with the encouraging reminder and personal witness that every man is sustained by God's strength and His grace. It is in recognizing His divine influence and following His will that you find the answers you seek."

"Star Man can help any man-especially those in their thirties, forties, and fifties-take the steps necessary to regain balance. Don't hesitate-let Gary's messages help you forge your path to a more balanced life today!"
-Floyd Gilbert President, National PresbyterianMen(PCUSA)

"Star Man will hit home for lots of men, especially those who feel uncertain about their priorities and need to get centered again!"
-Don Douglas, Vice President of Church Growth, International Cooperating Ministries

    So many things in this man's stories that I can relate to. I have my own star points in mind now, and I like that God is the focal point!
