Best Book for Men I’ve Read Since Wild at Heart

I’ve read lots of books for men.  I lead a men’s ministry.  I first read Wild at Heart in 2001 and was changed by it’s message of healing and coming out of hiding from the embarrassment of childhood wounds.   I have always been amazed at myself when I work with men & how easy it is to look at externals…and how, in general, the church teaches “sin management”.  But the real gold in a man is underneath the pose.

Men need a different message.  The church needs a different message.  Men need more.  What they need is Freedom.  Freedom from shame and hidden-ness.  If we men can learn to get real, and get raw, we can get free.

It takes great courage for a man to open up in complete transparency to other men.  It takes great strength.  And it is so worth it.

In my experience, I have seen that we hold the key to another man’s freedom.  It comes through coming totally clean and transparent.

Which brings me to Wes Yoder.  In my opinion, Wes nails it with Bond of Brothers. He invites us all into a conversation that will set us free and find true friendship and community.  But Wes’ message is not pie-in-the-sky theory.  It’s happening with men who want more–Freedom, Life and Love.  I’m seeing these friendships happening, and it is different from former small groups of 10-15 years ago. And it’s so good.  But it takes courage and trust.

I highly recommend every man buy this book, read it…AND LIVE.

Thank you, Wes, for having your first book be a real book for real men in need of freedom.
