Patrick focuses on a handful of themes that any man can read, digest, and apply in one’s daily life. Themes include but are not limited to determination, discipline, career, contentedness, devotion, family, friendships, and emotions.
The final chapter links the preceding subjects to the gospel: “True manhood doesn’t mean being perfect ourselves; it means trusting in Christ’s perfection for us. True manhood doesn’t mean being perfect ourselves; it means trusting in Christ’s perfection for us. True manhood doesn’t mean getting everything right; it means having the courage to say when we get things wrong and the confidence that come from receiving our acceptance from God in Christ.”
I have benefitted from Patrick’s other works and he certainly does not fall short in his newest effort. Readers should take into account the audience that Patrick intends to reach. He’s clearly not after the seasoned Christian man. Rather, he’s looking to reach the single man who has clearly not found his way. He’s looking for the married man who is failing in his marriage and commitments. His mark is set upon the man who needs some basic encouragement.
