Publisher's Summary

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.

A must read

I went through this book with the Men's Ministry at my church. over 35 of us met every Thursday evening and would go over the chapters together. New. This book is a must-read for any man who wishes to know what it takes to become a better Christian man. this is a very challenging book and will cause you to rethink your Christian Foundation. I had to set aside misconceptions of Christianity that have creeped into the church, and accept the hardcore truth of what God really wants us meant to be.

Thank you Pastor McDonald for coming forward with the truth that we men need to hear. I am a better man for it and will continue to hold this book near and dear as a reference when I find myself failing, as well the body of men that has joined together in unity in our men's group.

I have a paper copy of the book as well, but my job requires a lot of driving, so I found it easy to turn it on and then go back in the evenings and fill out the questions in the book.

"stand firm in the faith" <br />

Wow. This is truly how a man should act. So much information and little nuggets that are essential to being a man. Loved growing through this study.

Beyond Practical Manly Biblical Counsel

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.

Half truth

This book is a full generation behind what is actually going on. Probably works well for people who are in their 50s, but completely fails to address the emboldened feminists that younger men are contending with. Like a Norman Rockwell painting with Playboy and MadMen, this book has a small-town perspective. Taking its advice could be quite dangerous and damaging to a young man.

The subject material covered in this book is VERY!

In a world where the role of men is being downplayed and manliness is either condemned or trying to be redefined, this book offers clarity. Thank you James for the inspiration you've given me to be all God designed me to be.

What Men need to hear.

Mr. MacDonald does an excellent job of giving us practical standards, warnings and solutions for men to align their life with truth. This is one of my classics to review. I will use this as a discipleship tool.
