Publisher's Summary

Witty, compelling, and shrewd, Mansfield’s Book of Manly Men is about resurrecting your inborn, timeless, essential, masculine self.

The Western world is in a crisis of discarded honor, dubious integrity, and faux manliness. It is time to recover what we have lost. 

Stephen Mansfield shows us the way. Working with timeless maxims and stirring examples of manhood from ages past, Mansfield issues a trumpet call of manliness fit for our times. 

In Mansfield’s Book of Manly Men, you’ll see that:

  • This book is about doing. It is about action.
  • It is about knowing the deeds that comprise manhood and doing those deeds.
  • Habits have to be formed, and actions have to be aligned with the grace received. 

“My goal in this book is simple,” he says. “I want to identify what a genuine man does - the virtues, the habits, the disciplines, the duties, the actions of true manhood - and then call men to do it.”

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

Simple, straight forward, a challenge for modern men.

I think that every young man should read this book. It has simple foundations truths and instruction of what a man is called to be. A good measure of what it means to be a masculine. I highly recommend this!

10/10 100/100 A+

With the current state of our churches, country and men, this should be a mandatory READ. We may not know how to save America, obviously prayer and fasting, but this book is a GREAT start. I will be rereading this book, stories of great men are remarkable and the audio is performed exceptionally. You think your a man, read this book and see where you are on the scale 1-10,(not in book) Id say before considering my ego and all I would have put myself at an 8, but now I realize I’m more like a 4, got some work to do.

A helpful resource for men

This book was easy to read and listen to. It is a helpful guide for men, especially those who wish to be godly men without the trappings of modern-day correctness.

Eh

This book took up so much fluff and was one of the most boring books I read thus far on masculinity. Bland stories with long drawn out chapters, and even as a Christian myself, I felt he should've incorporated a version of masculinity that could cater to all religions, creeds, etc. Wasnt a fan.

Best book on the subject!

I read the book first, and came back for the audiobook. Whatever format you choose, this work is worth your time and money.

Good reminder to godly man

If you are a godly man, most likely you heard many of the things the author speaks of. However, as creatures given to forgetfulness it is refreshing to hear them again. Definitely helps you refocus on what is important.

Every Christian Man should read this book.

My God this book is amazing. It pumps you up and teaches you some of the most incredible lessons for men. "Here me well gentlemen. We will never become the men we are meant to be unless we learn the art of brotherhood and intentionally cultivate the deep, meaningful, rowdy relationships with other men. This is one of the most important things for a man to know."
