"Every man who seriously desires to appreciate masculinity and to face reality, his own soul, his place in the Gospel and in society, as well as his need for conversion and growth will be challenged by this book."Pecos Benedictine Book Nook
"A provocative experience for Christian men who are looking for an affirmation of their maleness from their tradition."The Journal of Men's Studies
"The focus throughout is on the difficulty of men finding mentors for our spiritual journey and the presence of the spirit to help us. I like the simple way the book invites us (men and women) to use our gender awareness to further our growth spiritually."Mennonite
