Men look up to the guys who can take a hit and keep going. We respect the fighter who picks himself up off the canvas after a knock-out punch and hangs in until the final bell. The quarterback who gets blindsided but doesn't fumble the ball earns our approval. Physical toughness like this is admirable, but it takes more than guts to become the men God made us to be, especially when the struggles we face are personal and close to the heart.

The difficulty of emotional pain and spiritual setbacks is of a much different sort than any physical challenge. Many of us men are not comfortable or well-equipped to grapple with them. Tony Evans gives us the kind of advice and inspiration we need to battle on through the most difficult circumstances.

Drawing from the lives of Moses, David, Joseph, Jonah, and other biblical men who faced the worst, Evans pulls men out of their brokenness and declares, "No more!" No more falling short of being the man God desires you to be for any reason. Evans shows that the struggles faced yesterday and today are the very same tools God is using to make us better men for tomorrow.

There are so many areas in which a Christian man can fall into tempatation and sin, sometimes habitual sin. All Christians need encouragment to remain faithful, but especially men, and this book is directed toward men and the areas where men frequently fail. Since we all have our own unique character flaws and weaknesses, this book by Tony Evans covers all the bases and gives much needed encouragement to men who desire to remain faithfulness in their daily lives. Tony Evans uses examples from Biblical characters to show how character flaws create disaster for those who succumb to following their worldly desires. We often offer up excuses for our failings, such as "Everyone else is doing it", or "Compared to others, I'm really not all that bad". But Author Evans states that in order to become a Godly man (or woman), we must not have any excuses, thus the title of his book. So while an accountability group is probably the best way to remain faithful, books such as this one are good adjuncts and give insight into what drives sinful behavior and how to avoid the sinful snares. This is a good devotions book for personal study, or alternatively, makes a wonderful group study.

It is not easy to be a Christian in today's society. This book will help those trying to live a faithful, holy, and honorable life.

I purchased this book as a gift for my fiancé, who is 24 years old. He is currently incarcerated and says this book is very inspiring right from the beginning. Going off of what he says about this book, and being that he is an avid reader, I would suggest any young man or man of any age to purchase!
