Publisher's Summary

A boy doesn't automatically become a man at age 18. What differentiates a man from a boy is the way he lives. A man has a vision for his life, while a boy lives day to day. A man is a team player, while a boy wants to be MVP. A man works, while a boy plays. A man has the courage to take a minority position, while a boy wants the reassurance of the crowd. A man is a protector, while a boy is a predator. 

These are the five marks of a man. It's not enough to just know them. A real man aggressively pursues them on a daily basis.  

Drawing from his own experience and the lives of others, Pastor Brian Tome calls on men to examine themselves and take steps in the direction of a fully realized manhood that honors God, respects women, elevates others, and works purposefully for an end greater than their own satisfaction or pleasure. It's time for men to step into their honorable place in the world and lean into a new reality - one defined by strength, purpose, and honor.

Great teaching

This book teaches so many great ideas (marks) of what makes a man a man and not just a boy. This is for my son and for my daughters. They all need to know what a real man looks like.

Dope!

Not only was the content off the chain, but I love the way it was read. Felt more like a conversation. Mix of Can't Hurt Me with righteousness and Godly wisdom. Not preachy at all. As soon as I finished it, I took action with a vision God gave me through inspiration here. Thanks my man!

Man Camp 2020 - I'm in!

I wish I had been taught these principles earlier in life so that i could be passing on this wisdom to others. I am a 41 year old half man half child at best. I have allowed my father's suicide (when I was 10 years old) to arrest my emotional developnent and spiritual growth. I'm ready to be a man (better late than never). This has been profoundly inspiring and I pray for the strength and fortitude to pursue my estranged manhood as though my life depends on it. Thank you for making this available and for delivering these principles in such a powerful way. - Drew

Im a boy...now with the tools to be a Godly MAN

Brian Tome is a wonderful pastor, but an even better man. I can identify with several aspects of his life. I love motorcycles, camping, and jerky. I have several vices, one of which used to be marijuana (can’t partake now because Im a medical professional). Ive had a massive stroke, from which Gods grace pulled me through and got me through graduate school. I too want to be a better husband and father. I have been to four Man Camps, once at a trip captain, and every time I have learned something new about myself that I might have never discovered. I carry my Man Camp challenge coin everywhere I go. This book should be read or listened to by every boy/ man in the world. You will learn a great deal about manhood and boyhood, but you havent truly learned anything until you apply these Five Marks to your life. God Bless.

Can’t read this frequently enough!

This is a book I will most likely revisit once a year. It’s insightful, entertaining, and gives PRACTICAL skills that help define what being a man really looks like.
