"A Not so good read"
Men's conference speaker and best-selling author Steve Farrar takes listeners through the psalms to see how David endured crushing pressure and fiery trials and emerged a great man, shaped by the hand of God. Men facing difficult challenges in life will relate to chapters on depression, betrayal, when your family is falling apart, living with a bad decision, living with your critics, and when your career is interrupted. Farrar encouragingly illustrates how David depended on God to overcome the same sins and trials - still remaining "a man after God's own heart".
"Fantastic! Should be required reading/listening."
The Psalms are like a marked trail through life, showing that others have walked ahead and faced many of the challenges, temptations, heartaches, and perplexities that men will encounter on their journeys. Farrar shows that when a man begins to understand that the strong and caring hand of God is sovereign over everything in his life - including his trials and heartaches - his confidence, hope, and joy will increase dramatically in the God who created him and desires to use him.
"A MUST READ for ALL Men!!!"
A leader must stand tall enough for his followers to find him. "As the God-appointed captain of his family," says Steve Farrar, "a man faces the challenge of spying out the social territory, marking danger zones, and taking stands to protect those in his charge." It's an active leadership role - and Farrar's been training men to succeed in it for over ten years.
