Man up. It's the best thing you can do for others - and yourself.
Men are so busy doing so many different things. When not working, their free time is often full of the trivial or sinful. But what society and church so desperately need are men who embrace all that God created them to be, who long to follow God without limits and meet the needs of those around them without hesitation.
To get there, we need what Pastor James MacDonald calls "radical surgery" - a deep, probing exploration and reparation of all that it means to be a man.
In his definitive, bold voice, MacDonald calls men to be watchful, firm in their faith, strong, and loving. This isn't a call for bravado and bluster. It's a call for men to mix tender and tough, to be humble, to follow Jesus. It is a call to be leaders, men of God, husbands who are present and caring and strong. It is straight talk - no posturing or posing or beating around the bush - inviting men to redemption and restoration in their manhood.
Listen to Act Like Men, and take bold steps toward being all that God designed you to be.

James MacDonald is such a seasoned pastor and like a spiritual grandfather of the faith. Every chapter is the perfect length for a morning devotional. It is a call to arms for all men of faith to grow up and become the godly man God not only intends, but demands of them. The book takes one verse of scripture and unpacks for it a 40 day long tour de force with homework and lifelong application. To be honest, I put it down for a while after the third devotional to read a different book, yet wish I hadn't as I became trapped into some sin that I may have avoided had I finished this text first. It is a must for any man that is serious about growing in their faith.
