    In his recent book, "Unleashing Courageous Faith: The Hidden Power of a Man's Soul," Paul Coughlin challenges men to claim their God given strength (thumos) and to live it out. He does a great job of looking at the relationship between masculinity and faith. He creatively and helpfully works through issues surrounding this God given strength: how we find it, how we claim it, what kills it, how we feed it, how we use it, and the dark side of it. I enjoyed reading this book and I think it is a very helpful book. While Coughlin could not deal with every male personality type or every aspect of our God given strength, he does do a good job with the basics. I think this book would be great for a guys to study together. Then they could unpack some of the areas the Coughlin introduces, but does not have the pages to really discuss. All in all this is a very helpful book to help show that faith and masculinity are not mutually exclusive.
