I read several books in 2013 and one of my favorites of the year was Fight, by Craig Groeschel. Craig is the Lead Pastor at Life Church in OK. I have been following his ministry for several years now and have learned a lot from his books, messages and Bible Studies.
Fight is a book that guys should read (it is a guys book that deals with guy/manhood issues). Pastor Craig uses the life of Samson as his primary character and teaching point. Here is a description of the book from the publisher:
Author and pastor Craig Groeschel helps you uncover who you really are—a man created in the image of God with a warrior’s heart—and how to fight the good fight for what’s right. You will find the strength to fight the battles you know you need to fight—the ones that determine the state of your heart, the quality of your marriage, and the spiritual health of your family. Craig will also look at examples from the Bible, including our good buddy Samson. Yep, the dude with the rippling biceps and hippie hair and a thing for Delilah. You may be surprised how much we have in common with this guy. By looking at his life, you’ll learn how to defeat the demons that make strong men weak. You’ll become who God made you to be: A man who knows how to fight for what’s right. And don’t you dare show up for this fight unarmed. Learn how to fight with faith, with prayer, and with the Word of God It’s time to fight like a man. For God’s Sake, FIGHT.
Take some time this year and read Fight with a couple other guys. It’s a great book.
