Today, I bring you another great new book…and it’s for the men! It’s entitled MAN UP! Becoming a Godly Man in an Ungodly World. Here’s an interview with the author, Jody Burkeen…
Why another book for Christian men?
This is not your normal “let’s try to do better” Christian men’s book. This is more like the “you already know what to do, now start doing it” Christian men’s book. Christian men are inundated with the “how to.”
I felt God was telling me to write a book that would challenge them to just “do it,” to stop being spiritual sissies and man-up the way God intended them to. This is why our ministry uses Revelations 3:16, “So because you are lukewarm neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.” Christian men have become lazy, complacent, and disobedient to God’s words.
Who should read this book?
Any Christian man that is not living up to the potential God has for his life. The Christian life is not easy, but it’s harder without God and His Word. This book lays out seven areas in a Christian man’s life where he needs to apply certain disciplines to better his walk.
Have you always been a man that Man’ed Up in his walk?
By no means. Most of the book talks about the struggles I have had and how I worked on disciplining myself to read the scriptures, to pray and apply what God was teaching me. Each day, I do all I can to stay a man that God will be proud of.
Why do you discuss “seven areas in a Christian man’s life”?
As I look at my own life, the process I took and am still taking, involved seven specific areas:
1. My personal relationship with Christ. With this in the forefront, the remaining six can be obtained with His help.
2. My marriage
3. Being a father
I believe that, if a man follows these seven areas, he will become a godly man in this ungodly world.
