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.

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.

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.

Jason has a very insightful mind and a very articulate way of adding martial arts and the gospel and making a reference to real life. You have given me the wereth all of combining my teaching in a more defiant way with martial arts and the gospel. thank you

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.

Not what I expected

Wow.

I started this book and had no idea where it was going. I thought “hmm this seems a bit… average, and very everywhere.”

I gave it time and just finished it, and I cannot wait to listen again.

Jason is phenomenal and I wish I took more notes. This book is genuinely life changing and I thank you for producing it.
