Play the Man: Becoming the Man God Created You to Be by Mark BattersonSomewhere along the way, our culture lost its definition of manhood, leaving generations of men and men-to-be confused about their roles, responsibilities, relationships, and the reason God made them men. Its into this no mans land that New York Times bestselling author Mark Batterson declares his mantra for manhood: play the man.
In this inspiring call to something greater, he helps men understand what it means to be a man of God by unveiling seven virtues of manhood. Mark shares inspiring stories of manhood, including the true story of the hero and martyr Polycarp, who first heard the voice from heaven say, Play the man. Mark couples those stories with practical ideas about how to disciple the next generation of men. This is more than a book; its a movement of men who will settle for nothing less than fulfilling their highest calling to be the man and the father God has destined them to be. Play the man. Make the man.

Kent Hughes. For many people, the word discipline evokes a sense of resistance—but Kent Hughes points out that the heart of spiritual discipline is a relationship with God. Men, we will never get anywhere in life without discipline, and doubly so in spiritual matters. Sensuality is the biggest obstacle to godliness among Christian men.

This is a project by and for Christian men seeking a positive and practical doctrine of manhood. Our goal is to become better at our work of dominion, rightly ordering ourselves and our world by developing those virtues and skills necessary to this task.
