New Book Reveals Life Lessons for Men Through Stories of Eight Biblical Heroes
Sullivan, an internationally known pastor, outlines eight critical steps that every man must take to step into manhood. These steps represent eight abilities core to what Sullivan defines as a “real” man – the ability to lead, worship, pray, give, prioritize, protect, fight for beliefs and achieve. Each of these qualities equal one vital step into manhood, and each is showcased by a man from the Bible who Sullivan believes most reflects that quality. The biblical heroes are Joshua, David, Elijah, Abraham, Jesus, Zacharias, Gideon and Paul. Each story includes scripture reference, key definitions, an affirmation and an action section in which readers can identify personal strengths and weakness and make notes. Although the stories are told independently of each other, they form a practical plan of action that is easy to understand and apply.
Sullivan writes, “The life stories of these biblical men provide solutions to real problems men face today. Men’s issues are some of the most prevalent and talked-about issues in society, and yet they are often ineffectively addressed. Decades of cultural change and corruption have brought us to a point in time when the image of manhood is misunderstood and misrepresented. As a result, our society is facing a great crisis that has been created by absentee men and fathers who are putting the future of countless families at risk. It is time to turn this crisis into a crusade.”
“Stepping Into Manhood” offers readers a spiritually rich, morally sound standard of living for which to aspire. It seeks to present manhood from God’s perspective and empower men to have a positive, powerful impact on their homes, jobs, churches and communities.
Mobile, Ala., Mayor Samuel Jones writes, “I commend Pastor Sullivan for his very informative and effective writing. I certainly recommend ‘Stepping Into Manhood’ to all people, especially those men who struggle with discovering their place in this world and beyond.”
A combination instruction manual and workbook, “Stepping Into Manhood” can be used for personal or group study, and as a teaching tool for men’s ministries, churches and conference settings.
