Discover and Exercise Your Masculine FaithPaul Coughlin unflinchingly calls men to lay claim to thumos, a source of God-given strength that's already in you. He explores the many facets of thumos, including where you find it, what kills it, what fuels it, its dark side, how to use it for good, and much more. If you're ready to reach for a higher level of true masculinity, read on. You'll find practical help and information in the author's signature style, packed with illustrations from his life and from the lives of admirable men. "Paul Coughlin courageously confronts 'Christian' myths that attempt to transform men into warm, fuzzy, insipid wimps. Here's much-needed Christ-centered teaching declaring war on misguided thinking that effectively emasculates men in the name of God. Here's life-changing teaching that guides men to conform to Jesus Christ, not religion!"--Greg AlbrechtPresident, Plain Truth MinistriesAuthor of Unplugging From Religion...Connecting With God"I read everything Paul Coughlin writes and I am never disappointed. This book caused me to pause and rethink my faith, my relationships, and my lifestyle. Paul has a way of communicating that makes you laugh, makes you think, and always has incredibly practical value."--Jim Burns, PhDPresident, HomeWordAuthor of Confident Parenting, Creating an Intimate Marriage, and Teaching Your Children Healthy SexualitySmall-group discussion guide included
This life-changing teaching challenges men to exercise the manly courage found in the male soul. Called thumos, this physical, moral, and spiritual courage appears in the New Testament, urging men to take action. For many, it is the missing ingredient in their spiritual growth, ready to bless them with power, purpose, and integrity to make them better leaders, disciples, husbands, and fathers. Paul Coughlin is simply a guy with a strong message for other guys--including former Christian Nice Guys. Written in Coughlin's signature readable style, this book is filled with practical help and includes a study guide for men's groups and individual use.
