Publisher's Summary

Men were made to rule. They always have and always will. Nothing can change that. Nothing will. It is not a question of whether men will be ruling, but which ones and how.

Our modern society has called for us to “smash the patriarchy”, and the church has not done much better. Instead of telling men how they can hone and refine their aggressive traits, the church has told men that they should aspire to be meek servant-leaders, and when a man shows any signs of independence, he is shown the door.

This leaves most young men lost. They don’t know what to do or how to improve, so they watch Jordan Peterson videos on YouTube to learn how to grow in their masculinity and sense of mission. In this book, Michael Foster and Bnonn Tennant remind men that their natural aggressive instincts are gifts from God that are meant to be used for the kingdom. 

Men are supposed to found households, join brotherhoods, and work toward a mission. It's Good to Be a Man offers men a quick guide to where they are and how they can improve. God made men to be strong and aggressive risk-takers. This is a feature, not a bug. Foster and Tennant remind us that it’s good to be a man.

Excellent read

The are a lot of books on what it means to be a Man, and this is one of the best ones I've read. This timely book does a great job engaging that question, giving you enough to get started as you undertake the enormous God given duty of embracing your masculinity.

Come for wisdom, receive rebuke, and grow stronger

You are probably ready to receive this if you are willing to. If you're scoffing at the premise, then you're probably too young.

A basic primer of what manhood is

We have a lot of views of manhood in our culture: the white knight who supports any woman who cries, the weak domesticated boy at his wife's beck and call, the men going their own way who are broken and selfish and the Clint Eastwood gunslinger loner who can only kill and destroy. None of these are what God wants a man to be.
excellent book, I highly recommend it

very very good book, 🔥 God is good!

Getting a wife is a great thing, but it is better to be a man first. unfortunately many men in today culture become husbands and fathers before they figure out true manhood. It's Good to Be a Man

It’s good

A Biblically grounded work on what being a man is. And the heart of our mission is to glorify God whenever He has placed us.

If you, like many men today, struggle with understanding what God requires of you as a Christian man, this is a good place to start.

It’s good.
