I can't speak highly enough about the way this book addresses manhood in our culture. Biblically challenging and radically applicable, it honestly addresses the deepest longings and fears a man faces. --Matt Chandler
Prepare for a paradigm-shifting view of biblical manhood.
Every man wants to succeed. But for so many, life seems to get in the way. We all have friends good men, followers of Christ even who start out well but before long, they re failing at relationships, bending ethical standards, or driving
themselves so hard at work they re losing the hearts of their wife and kids.
In "The Real Win, "Colt McCoy and Matt Carter wrestle deeply and personally with this challenge, then deliver down-to-earth, biblical answers. Based on their personal experiences and a close study of Scripture, McCoy and Carter show men:
Why so much depends on who you trust and who you serve
Why every man is called to lead and why every man can
How to man up to temptation and conquer it
How to fi nd the win even in your biggest failure
The real win means trusting the Lord and walking with Jesus no matter what, write Matt and Colt. That kind of faithfulness is possible for any man who follows God with all his heart. No matter what circumstances threaten him, a
faithful man is the most truly confi dent man in the room.
Complete with practical study guide for personal or small group use.
