Every Man's Challenge: How Far Are You Willing to Go for God?by Fred Stoeker
Synopses & Reviews
Are you ready to face life’s tests?
God tests a man. Into the flow of everyday life He sends “pop quizzes”–those unexpected trials that show us what we’re made of; that reveal the true quality of our faith and character; that show our willingness to obey Him.
Every Man’s Challenge, part of the best-selling Every Man series, will prepare you to obey. It does take guts to stand firm in facing what life throws our way. We need courage to acknowledge our own weaknesses and to change. We need understanding in handling moral dilemmas and family crises. Thankfully, God has given us the strength we need. By His power we can “participate in the divine nature” and triumph over our sins and the temptations and corruption of the world.
The forty “exams” in this book, comprised of Scripture, stories, and reflective questions, will give you the necessary tools to draw closer to God and win life’s battles. Used in your devotional times or for personal reflection or group study, you’ll find strength to overcome sexual temptation, learn how to love your wife better, and gain increasing confidence to live as Christ did.
In the defining moments of your life, you can obey God and pass the tests that challenge every man.
A collection of memorable insights designed specifically for men of faith on the path to maturity offers advice on committing fully to God and understanding what the commitment means to modern life and spiritual growth. Original.
