Eldredge does a good job of outlining manhood in today's current age. He equips men with stories that enable them to better serve their wives and family. One area that was lacking was a series of author notes in the back; he makes up for the lack of author notes by having a very useful prayer index. I also had difficulty getting hooked into the story. (This may have been just the May blahs or the writing, I am not sure.)
All in all a decent read, one I would hesitantly cluck about. 7.9/10

This review will not try to answer if Brian is correct in his assessment. I need to read more in order to create a proper response to his questions.
But the questions are the gift that McLaren endows to the readers; here are a few of the questions:
- What are the agreements that we make about the proper role of the church?
- What is the framework we utilize to understand the Church's response to the Trinity?
- What did Modernity do to the structure of the Church?
- What does the church do with a loss of a meta-narrative?
- How does money effect the preaching of God?
- Why is their power in the Bible?
- Which kingdom does the Church serve Caesar's Imperialism, or the Kingdom of God?
- What are the ordinary means of Grace?

Be willing to go where you are to all people, at all times, and with any means necessary to spread the word of the gospel.
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always to the end of the age.
5through whom(A)we have received grace and(B)apostleship(C) to bring about the obedience of faith for the sake of his name(D) among all the nations,
2 Cor. 13:14
14(A) The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and(B) the love of God and(C)the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
Man has had difficulty in expressing with all nations in a clear voice ever since the fall of the tower of Babel (Gen 11:1-10). We most honor each other's language in order to respect the culture of all nations.
Bible gateway offers a great way to bridge the gaps between cultural landscapes. I use the bible gateway to share scripture with my coworker Telesena. She is Haitian. Bible gateway has a Haitian translation of the scriptures. Telesena loves it when I give her scriptures in her native tongue.
