5 of 5 stars *****
The Authentic Manhood series is a necessary lesson in today's world for all men. Known as the 33 series, A Man and His Story, Vol. 2 in the Training Guide, delves into the qualities that a man needs to be the man God intends him to be. Scripture, the source of those intentions, speaks to all. There are verses for men and women in all phases of growth through community, family, and church which are not meant to supplant God but to support one in his/her walk with God.
This series is accompanied by films that present cases pertaining to each lesson. A Man and His Story is meant for men to better understand their wounds from the past that may become obstacles to realizing their full potential as spiritual leaders of their families, upstanding citizens, and Christians who walks with God in the community.
This reader enjoys the films shown in a christian men's group who discuss the appropriate, thought-provoking questions at the end of each chapter. This experience not only teaches new ideas and explains why society is the way it is, it also encourages men to honestly soul search. Men in such groups are more empowered to face their fears and share with other men the very aspects of men's lives that keep them isolated from one another. The Key is always in the scriptures because humanity's path to heaven is never a solo journey and never without the protection of the Holy Shepherd leading His flock.
