What is the measure of a man? Is it athletic ability, strength, intelligence, or accomplishments? Manhood isn’t measured by how much money you make, the job you have, what you wear, or who you marry. While today’s cultural flinches at the term “biblical manhood,” God had a definition for men at creation, and you might be surprised about his views of what makes a man.
Brave and Bold: 31 Devotions to Strengthen Men offers thirty-one daily devotions to encourage readers to become men whose strength comes from following Jesus and reflects him to a watching world. Author Marty Machowski explores scripture to uncover the truth that becoming a real man means trusting God in every area of life, including serving, taking responsibility, providing for his family, and confessing failure.
Through personal stories and examples, and practical application, men will be challenged to “be doers of the word, and not hearers only” (James 1:22) and to be examples of faithfulness, selflessness, self-control, and humble dependence on the Lord. Each devotion calls men to grow deeper in compassion, kindness, courage, integrity, and service. Machowski considers Brave and Bold to be a “pocket biblical manhood boot camp.”
Brave and Bold can be used for personal reading, one-on-one discipleship, or small group discussion, encouraging men to live on a mission to honor the Lord and to make him known in every part of life.
