Overview

What's the most courageous thing you've ever done?

As men, all of us face decisions in life that demand courage. Big or little, complex or straightforward, these choices—let’s call them battles—matter a great deal. One courageous choice leads to another; tomorrow’s integrity depends on today’s bravery.

Dennis Rainey identifies five stages of a man’s journey through life—boyhood, adolescence, manhood, mentor, and patriarch—and examines a man’s responsibilities at each step. Rainey calls men to seize the moment and take action, stepping up to responsibility and inspiring others in the process. It’s about embracing courage, rejecting passivity and cowardice.

Ultimately, you’ll be challenged to be the man on your battlefield.

Very few of us are clueless about manhood but in Peter it says we are stirred up by remembering. Life is busy and full of distractions. This book is inspirational and a good buy to help with a fresh perspective at being a godly man and passing on the values to the next generations.

This book challenged me to stop cowering in certain areas of my life. I reccomend it to any man trying to live for Christ

So often we men do not know what to do, how to "be a man". Whether we had little instruction on being a man in the Godly sense or just have had some road blocks along the way "Stepping Up" shows us what beinga man is all about. No matter if you are on the first lap or comining out of the forth turn of life this book is very powerful and encouraging. Get it! Read it!

First two chapters were good and intrigued my interest. In the third chapter, Rainey launches in the currently popular (and politically corrrect) "male-bashing". Point: Rainey challenges men to "be involved" in their children's lives and to not go AWOL. What he avoids to mention is that in a divorce, the mothers have custody 93 percent of the time - and they do NOT WANT the fathers messing up their 'training.'
