In a culture that exalts the caveman-like qualities of masculinity, most women have stopped expecting anything more. Young men are taught to view women as slaves to their self-centered desires. More than ever, men need to know that they can rise above this sad mediocrity. They desperately need someone to recognize their potential for blending courage and kindness, strength and spiritual sensitivity. With its riveting vision of Christ-centered manhood, God's Gift to Women shows young men how to become the heroic, selfless knight that every woman dreams about.
Buried Inside Every Young Man Is the Potential to Change the World
Deep within the rugged soul of every young man, there is a warrior in search of his sword and a poet in search of his pen. But heroic, prince-like masculinity is something most women only dream of in today’s perverse and self-serving world.
With contagious passion and boldness, Eric Ludy challenges you to forsake modern male mediocrity for Christ-built, warrior-poet manhood—manhood that will capture the heart of a woman and change the course of history.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I love this book. I am reading it with a young group of men in our youth group. These young men really enjoy the book as well. It helps these young guys realize that manhood is not about being what everyone else in the world is doing. It is about being a man of integrity, being chivalrous, caring, faithful, patient, not overbearing, a man of character, and most of all a man of God. I think it is so important to teach our young men that they don't have to be the bad boys but they can be the prince charming the world so needs.
I picked this book up because it was reccomended to me. When I started reading I couldn't put it down. The liturature in the book pulls you in, and there are many life lessons for teens. I read this, and now find myself looking at life different. Amazing!!!
I¿m a 20-year-old girl, but as an avid reader of Eric and Leslie Ludy¿s other books, I wanted to see what Eric had to say in God¿s Gift to Women. I just finished reading it, and all I can say is, ¿Amen! Preach it, Eric!¿ If guys would take to heart what Eric says in this book, the world would be filled with happy women! I recommend that every guy read this book, and find the secret to winning a woman¿s heart (it¿s not flowers and chocolate, but those do help! :)). Eric did forget to mention one of the most key elements of being a warrior poet: opening the door for ladies, especially your mom and sister! Otherwise, he covered all the bases. So whether you haven¿t a clue at how to be tender to a woman, or you think you have it all figured out, you guys need to read this book. It will point you towards the path of becoming God¿s Gift to Women. P.S. Girls, if you want to read this book, go right ahead! It¿s obviously geared towards guys, but I got a lot out of it as well. It helped me understand our ¿wild at heart¿ men a bit better, and gave me a vision of the kind of man I¿m waiting for: a tender warrior poet.
