    I would recommend this book to every male out there! It is especially good for teens and college-age guys, but I've reread it and I know that I will continue to reread it as I grow older. What an amazing tale of how to be the man that God desires for you to be and the man of God that your girlfriend/wife/future wife needs you to be. Read it, period, the end.

    I'm still very firmly a 'nonbeliever,' who doesn't believe you need Christ in order to become less selfish. I also don't think this is well-written, for the most part. However, unlike the other books I've read that encourage 'traditional' male and female roles, this actually has some fairly kind and useful points. It addresses toxic masculinity, and encourages actually listening to your partner, and cultivating an emotional connection rather than servitude.

It also encourages helping others and prioritising their needs above one's own. So I had to give it two stars. Edit: in the first version of this review, I somehow forgot that Ludy thinks that, if you think a ‘bad thought,’ you should just ‘run fast in the opposite direction’ - because if you give yourself to Jesus you don’t have to worry about your mental health, right? Right?!

    This book was so good I read it in two days. I would have read it in one day had not other activities been planned. I really like the way Eric Ludy writes his books and communicates in general. He combines a stirring, inspirational message, with solid Biblical understanding, and ties it all together with humorous examples from his own life. What I liked about this book specifically, was it got to the very heart of the matter.

What I liked about this book specifically, was it got to the very heart of the matter. This wasn't a book of cheap tricks to manipulate women into liking you. Like classic Eric Ludy, he esteemed the hard and narrow path, and left the sugar coating off! However, as he is also so good at, Ludy paints a beautiful picture of the reward in store for those who do the hard things to obtain it. Consistent with the Doug Wilson book I recently read on courtship (Her Hand In Marriage), the key to being "God's gift to women" is a Covenant Life with Christ. Or as Wilson says, the qualities one needs for a godly marriage are the same qualities one needs for Christian life. If we really want to live the richest life possible and be a blessing to others, we must make love of God center in our lives, and everything that entails. Some may think this sounds oppressive, but it's really not. The Self-centered life is what is actually oppressive, and Ludy very clearly points out this fact. Very inspiring! What I also liked so much about the book was how much I could relate. There really is a "Brotherhood" as Ludy describes it, a "code" young men are subconsciously taught and expected to uphold in how we act, and relate to women. I certainly have experienced the lies this "Brotherhood" encourages, and I definitely see and have seen how men are deceived by it's twisted teaching. It really is from Satan as Ludy says. Sadly, very few men have broken free of this bondage, and our culture promotes it. I think this is a great book, and every man should read it, regardless of whether or not he intends to marry.

    The only reason for not giving this great book a 5-star review is the extremely pretentious title. Other than that, this book is great! Eric encourages us young, single men to refuse to accept the false version of manhood - butt-scratching, alphabet-burping, porn-indulgent - that we have been given our whole lives in exchange for a true, Covenant life with our King. When we do this, Ludy says, we will become a great godly man, inspiring and changing the world, while becoming a man truly able to p The only reason for not giving this great book a 5-star review is the extremely pretentious title.

When we do this, Ludy says, we will become a great godly man, inspiring and changing the world, while becoming a man truly able to pursue and love a woman. Not only does he lay out what godly manhood has looked like in his life, but he walks us through many ways to be encouraged on our paths to manhood. His fun, story-based writing style makes this informative and inspiring book a true page-turner, and I highly suggest it to anyone seeking to grow as a godly man (or any woman seeking to understand what it is to be a godly man).

    There’s a decent amount to learn from this book if given a chance. Somewhat repetitive at times but maintains a genuinely good message throughout.

    I read this book in a day. I was so hungry to find some profound solution to today's masculinity issues. I found in this book that there are none. The answer provided was "dazzlingly simple." What a great shot in the arm for the men of the world! It'd definitely worth reading, if you can get past the style issues. I felt like the book wasn't totally organized. I prefer books like this with much clearer chapter delineations. After i finish a book, i liek to be able to summarize the main points in I read this book in a day.

I prefer books like this with much clearer chapter delineations. After i finish a book, i liek to be able to summarize the main points in a clear, organized way, and i struggled with that, but i do with all the Ludy books. This is the 5th book i've read from them, and though i love what they have to say, i feel this about their writing: 1. It never feels strongly demarcated into segments. Because of this, it's very 2. repetitive. 3. The tone is always conversational, but sometimes i feel like they are trying to present to middle school boys (when it's Eric writing). It's overly dramatic. To be fair, in the beginning of the book, Eric promises that "unless you are a young man, this book might not feel like a good fit." I'm really glad he gave that caveat, because it's definitely true. Leslie has also made the same comment in her books, saying "this book is written like we're in a coffee shop..." I have a feeling that, because of my learning style, iw ould appreciate and apply the books so much more if they were written differently, but the material is really fantastic, that i do find it hard to fault that. I end up having to rework an outline of my own after the fact...

    Like it says in the subtitle this book covers the lost greatness of masculinity. It is written for men, but as a young woman I gained a lot from reading it. So much of what our culture today holds up as true manhood I find unattractive, and frankly it saddens me. This book covers what truly great manhood is all about, and I'm glad there are men out there pursuing this, pursuing God. That's the kind of man I want to marry someday--a real hero, a man among men, a warrior poet! Like it says in the subtitle this book covers the lost greatness of masculinity.

    What is the Lost Greatness of masculinity? It is being a Christ-built warrior-poet living the covenant Life of the King of Kings. With characteristic candor, boldness, and passion, Eric Ludy packs a wallop of a punch to our culture's ideas of mediocre manhood. This is a must-read for any young man who's feeling the stir of the Savior calling him to leave the fleshly desires of youth, depose Self from the throne of life, and run into deeper and abandoned life in Him.

    I love the title of this book. Mr. Ludy highlights the inadequacies of "the brotherhood" and calls men to a higher standard. Nothing exceptional or earth shattering, but a good reminder of the responsibilities of men. Major takeaway: The good that God can accomplish through us if we take a step of faith into unfamiliar and uncomfortable territory. I love the title of this book.

    While it's not a groundbreaking piece of literature, Eric List deserves credit for taking an honest look at today's image of what it means to be a man, and what true masculinity is (or could be). As a youth ministry veteran, this is a book I've held on to because I am sure that the wisdom in these pages will continue to serve me well for years to come.

    I think all I'll really say about this is that as usual, the books aimed at men are marginally better (less sappy, more substance), but while I am all for supporting Godly masculinity, there is still something that just gets under my skin about the presentation.

    The title might mislead you as to why I read it--it's written for young men! I read it as Caleb's mom to see what Eric Ludy said about young men living out their faith in their dating relationships. I see why Kara is such of fan of the Ludy's books. Highly recommended!

    Wow What an amazing challenge to the young men of this generation, if only we were willing to forsake the natural selfish desires and strive to truly know God and serve him in protecting femininity... But it is only possible in a life that is centered on Christ our king...

    Absolutely loved this. Reading from Eric gives a girl/woman an insite to a man’s pint of view. I also gleaned quite a few things for myself. I recommend Eric & Leslie to all my Christian friends.
