Publisher's Summary

Read by the author.

Countering a culture that coerces men to suppress instead of express, Jason Wilson calls us to unlearn society's definition of masculinity and discover the power of engaging with and mastering their emotions.

For decades Jason Wilson was losing the war within - the internal battle that many men wage daily but were never taught how to win. As a result, he could not combat his toxic thoughts and emotions. Instead, he was conquered by them and communicated without composure - hurting those he loved and himself. This went on until he renewed his mind by releasing years of past trauma. His life and relationships were transformed when he learned how to master his emotions and express them with self-control. In the process, Jason became a better husband, father, and leader.

In Battle Cry, Jason equips you with the mental and spiritual weapons needed to wage and win your inner war by showing you how to:

  • master your emotions rather than be ruled by them;
  • win internal battles before they become external wars;
  • reject the world’s definition of masculinity and embrace comprehensive manhood;
  • communicate more effectively with the people in your life; 
  • release trauma from your past so you can live fully to your potential in the present.

You can live beyond the limitations of your mind and finally experience the life you’ve always longed for. You can break through what you’ve been through. It’s time to win the war within!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

As great as I expected.

I originally heard Jason speak on the Joe Rogan podcast and I have to say I was Really impacted by what he said on the show As a multi racial man and father myself. After listening to the book I have to say it was definitely everything I was expecting from him and gave me some great insights and Ways to look at the world and myself through a different light which is refreshing and super beneficial for my mental health . I will say the book is a bit too heavy and the religious side for myself as one who does not believe in a particular religion but outside of that the book was perfect.

Not Bad, Not good: a Lukewarm Book

overall the book is well written and has some great stories and philosophies that are practical sprinkled throughout.

however, it is for a very specific kind of audience: Religious Folks. The author relies too heavily on Bible scripture to make a point and it feels either inauthentic at times or too forced.

I don't mind a little scripture in books, especially if it emphasizes the point. however, nearly every point feels like the author is trying to evangelicize at every turn. This takes away from the book and leaves me wishing there was more diversity in his usage of quotes.

I was hoping for a book that was similar to Ryan Holidays "the obstacle is the way," but instead it became abundantly clear in the early chapters that, aside from anecdotes of his own experiences and a few others,, the Bible is the ONLY book the author seems to reference.

if you're a Bible thumper, you're likely to enjoy it far more than I did.

however, if you're a philosophy buff that appreciates diversity in your consumption of thought provoking literature, stay clear of this one, it gets monotonous in its overall tone and pacing very quickly.

Religiously Saturated

I like Jason's message and wholehearted agree with much of what he says, but there's SO MUCH scripture that it's hard for the non-religious to really absorb a lot of the points. As an atheist although I appreciate and support his work, it's a huge turn off to hear more Biblical quotes than a 400 Club PSA, and being told repeatedly that so much of what Jason prescribes requires a relationship with a higher power.

It was exactly what I needed! Awesome Job! Jason Wilson spoke such a powerful story that touched my mind and caused me to view things differently. So grateful for his wisdom and God using him in the great way he has thus far! I'm ready to wage and win!

too much religion

I saw some of his excerpts on his TikTok, and thought his book would be helpful, but he leans too heavily on religion. he says he's not proselytizing, yet mentions religion seemingly every other sentence. going to have to return this one.

MESMERIZING!

Wow, just wow!

Some reviews state that this book is heavy on scripture but I didn't find it intrusive at all. The scriptures are but a part of the general theme of this book. Give this book a try you won't regret it!

Great Guide through Life

This book has been a great eye opener towards masculinity and being vulnerable. It shows that although we are taught be a certain way as men, it's okay to step out of the norm and question what we've been taught. The challenge to think differently and tackle those issues after resetting can be crucial.

Dissapointed

The importance of what Jason has to say ( I had heard him speak on Joe Rogan) was too swamped in religious packaging that it read ( Kindle version) and sounded too much like an Infomercial. This may be a cultural thing and it may sit easier with an American audience.

Eye opening

I came across you by complete accident. I was in a dark place and couldn’t understand how I got there, through being real with myself and opening myself to the hurt and love I found myself again. All I can say is thank you and keep getting your message out there how ever you can, Some people won’t want to listen but for so many it will change there lives for ever.

ego ripping and heart warming

both the book and narrator are brilliant.
the later chapters I repeated as I was blown away by how much I connected to what was being said.
