Man of God
What makes a real man? There are no shortage of role models on offer: the dedicated Dad or the party-hard guy: the cut-throat businessman or the sensitive husband; the competitive athlete or the contemplative shy type; the reckless adventurer or the around the house handy man.
This set of Bible studies, aims to unpack the answers the Bible gives to the question of identity that men face today. We will learn our God-given role in creation, how that has been ruined by the fall. And we will discover how we can start to be restored through the man above all men – Jesus Christ. Some things that emerge will be controversial in our culture, even in some of our churches. This course doesn’t set out to be politically correct but faithful to God’s counter-cultural word.
Suitable for groups or individuals, this guide covers all the major Bible teaching specific to men. Set within the big picture of God’s redemption of sinners through Jesus Christ, the heart-felt aim of the authors is that 21st century men will be set free from the slavery of human expectations, and enabled to live purposefully and confidently for Christ as true Men of God.
The Good Book Guides have been developed to ensure that each session not only seeks to uncover the meaning of the passage and see how it fits into the big picture of the Bible, but also leads people to apply what they have learnt to their lives. Flexible and practical, the Good Book Guides are ideal for small groups, or individual study.

Here at Covenant Life Church, we have greatly benefitted from the small group resources from The Good Book Company. Many small groups in our family life ministry have used "Colossians: Confident Christianity" in their study of scripture. Additionally, our youth ministry has used "Romans 1-5: God and You" in their small groups. Both resources were very easy to use, helped the reader engage directly with the scriptures, and had a wonderful pastoral emphasis demonstrated in all the questions.

A great study to work through whether on your own or in a group
I have thoroughly enjoyed working through this study. It has brought me great insight as to what it truly means to be a man of God. It really brings to light what a man's role should be and how through sin this role has become warped.
I highly recommend this study for anyone who really wants to get to grips with what it means to be a man of God.
Very practical and Biblical
Teaching the men in our church these lessons has both provoked and inspired them to live a Godly living as husbands, fathers, workers and church members.
A typical reply during the lessons: We didn't know that's Gods purpose with our life!
Highly recommended for personal, group or Church teaching.
Very helpful, wide ranging and well written
I've run through this book myself and with one other and each time found it helpful. It sets a good foundation for a relevant understanding of what it is to be a Christian man today in the first three studies. It is culturally relevant and gets you to compare and contrast the attitudes of the world to the Biblical perspective. Reccomended
Im currently using this book as a 1-2-1 bible study with one of my young people, we are both finding this very interesting and would recommend it to all guys.
A great resource for 1 to 1 bible study!
Great book and well worth getting into
I use it together with a few mates in a prayer group to work through. We find it very beneficial and often reminds us of the correct direction in which we need to head ourselves into.
