In this ground-breaking book with a timeless message to men and also women, Paul Coughlin explains why being a “nice guy” is disastrous to everyone involved. Instead, Paul shows how the abundant life that God has for us is found through a more assertive orientation toward life, growing faith, saving marriage, bolstering careers, and in some cases even saving life itself.
“Paul Coughlin is challenging our thinking on what it means to be God’s man in the 21st Century. The Apostle Paul pens in 1 Corinthians 16:13, “act like men.” That begs the question, What is a man? Coughlin is asking that question. This book is his excellent answer.” — Rev. Emerson Eggerichs Ph.D. author of Love and Respect: the Love She Most Desires and the Respect he Desperately Needs
“John Eldredge gave men permission to be “wild at heart.” Paul Coughlin shows us how to do it. This book is a road map to a larger life.” — David Murrow, author of Why Men Hate Going to Church
“Paul has bold, powerful, and even shocking words for the church–especially regarding God’s celebration of sexual passion. If the church wants to get a handle on rampant divorce and infidelity, Paul has some words of wisdom we dare not ignore.” — Dave Meurer, author of Good Spousekeeping: A His and Hers Guide to Couplehood
