Overview

Samson and the Pirate Monks: Calling Men to Authentic Brotherhood by Nate Larkin

With no-holds-barred honesty and poignant storytelling, Nate Larkin introduces a model of community and friendship that is reinvigorating men's ministry across the country, a model he calls The Samson Society. Too many men see the biblical hero Samson as their model for manhood--a rugged individualist of the highest order. Yet, Samson's solitary successes were eventually overcome by moral weaknesses. Larkin, through the story of his own past and the stories of those in The Samson Society, offers a radical, refreshing alternative.

One of the most refreshing and engaging reads that I have encountered. For anyone that enjoys real life stories with authentic struggles. Encouraging trust in God without the 'Leave it to Beaver' endings. Larkin points readers to faith in God and brotherhood of believers as we live this life together.

As each man reads this book, the light of Christ burns brighter in his heart. There is not a man that I have suggested this book to that has not come back and said, "Let's do it!!" Nate is suggesting here, something for men that we all long for but are too manly to admit we need it...Help in the long walk. As a former Marine, I know what it means to have that man that is willing to fall back with you when you grow weary, the man willing to stop and help you up, then carry part of your burden or even you, that man willing to shout in your ear to get up and MOVE IT!!! Men - even though Salvation is our own to claim and freely given to each individual, we are meant to walk together. Women are our help-mates and men...well, they are our brothers our shield bearers. We are to be part of the Body of Christ. You go into battle with a shield-man for a reason - to protect your flank and cover your back. Read this, implement this, walk together. Be men of courage.
