Real Men are leaders because Real Men are readers.

Real Men read more than just the sports pages, they read the Bible.  But Real Men don’t stop at only reading the Word of God, but they also read the books of great men whom God has raised up.   As a Christian man, if you’re not growing daily WITH Christ, then that means you’re dying slowly (spiritually) WITHOUT Him.

I’m constantly asked about the books I read (other than the Bible) for spiritual growth, and honestly, it’s too many to name.  So I decided to narrow it down by compiling a list of my favorite books (for Christian MEN).  This list will be updated frequently, as I read more books, so please bookmark this page or visit it frequently.

So read on, lead on, and stay in His grip!
