    1. A Non Review Review NOTE I haven t read the book, won t read the book, and AM NOT RATING THE BOOK This is a review on the premise of the book and the culture surrounding the publication of the book Ye have been warned.I always find it humorous when ultra right wing conservatives use an R rated movie to try to ride the bandwagon and promote their agenda.What are these guys doing watching The Big Lebowski How do you miss the entire point of the film And how do you come up with the idea that The Du [...]

    2. The Dude s Guide to Manhood was front page on the Monergism Books site when I first saw it Displayed was a mustard yellow book cover with a silhouetted beard which reminded my three year old daughter of Rachel s dad from church How could I not go for it It was even recommended by John Piper So I read it, and thought I would give this book review a bit space than I have given to some other books I have read recently So I ll go ahead and get started with the good stuff You will find this book rea [...]

    3. I love the amount of books that are being released geared toward men and biblical manhood It s refreshing and it makes me feel like the publishing industry is finally giving us some attention Men have had to struggle in their faith as the church has become and feminized with Jesus is my girlfriend songs and women becoming ministers, preachers, and elders and taking the leadership role away from their men It is a subject I take seriously so I was excited to read The Dude s Guide to Manhood by D [...]

    4. Darrin Patrick is a solid gospel man He knows men and importantly he knows who can rescue and change men the God Man Jesus Christ Throughout this book DP does an excellent job presenting the problems dudes face He does an even better job mining out the source of our problems sin He doesn t flinch in calling men to rise up off the couch and be men who sacrifice and are responsible in light of the grace of God Darrin references stories that will resonate with guys Wherever you are on your journey [...]

    5. Darrin Patrick s The Dudes Guide to Manhood highlights long forgotten essential wisdom that boys need to know on their paths to become men Patrick lays out essential characteristics of manhood from a biblical worldview.This book inspired me to pursue biblical manhood by learning from other men, loving my friends and family members, and most of all, loving Jesus Christ Whether you come from a Christian background or not, whether you are single or married, I know that The Dudes Guide to Manhood wi [...]

    6. Any book that sports a moustache, a pair of hipster spectacles and a gospel beard on the front cover deserves my attention right from the off And rightly so While character shows the world how much of a real man a bloke is, it is often said that his beard is the exclamation point And while that saying only plays the role of an entertaining, anecdotal truth, the cover itself sets the book up perfectly in what to expect.But the content of Darrin Patrick s new book is anything other than a mere exc [...]

    7. What does it mean to be a man While this question could be answered with a simple biological definition, manhood is much complex than one s anatomy True manhood expresses itself in the character, actions, and pursuits of a man.However, our culture has a shortage of true men So how did we get to this point In the introduction to his book The Dude s Guide to Manhood Finding True Manliness in a World of Counterfeits, Darrin Patrick says the problem is that many men are simply unprepared to face th [...]

    8. If you ask anyone today what manhood is, you will get a wide variety of answers Hollywood paints a vast landscape On one hand, you have the wuss, the mama s boy, the passive nerd who is the target of bullies and jocks and anyone that might feel the least bit intimidated by their knowledge On the other hand, you have the Expendables, Rocky, James Bond, the Avengers, Batman Tough guys who will do whatever it takes to get the job done If there is a crisis situation, these guys will come in, guns bl [...]

    9. Patrick was very intentional with how he wrote this book You can see that even from the endorsements on the back of the book there is very little mention of God, Church, or Jesus With that said the majority of Patrick s book is void of this language as well The first ten chapters of The Dude s Guide dives into systematically thought out topics which are essential to manhood Patrick shows the dangers of over emphasizing or under emphasizing each of the attributes, but warns men from living below [...]

    10. When I first saw this book, I rolled my eyes and thought, Just what we need, ANOTHER book on manhood, and this is the hipster version I judged this book by its cover, for sure What led me to give it a closer look was John Piper s strong accolades for the table of contents in themselves I had to investigate that, and they were intriguing So, having completed the book, Darrin Patrick doesn t hammer on guys for 175 pages for not being man enough What he does is much like a calm mentor and talks ab [...]

    11. I went into the book thinking that it would be theory and philosophically focused However, I had to adjust my expectations when I discovered the book is highly focused on the practical elements of manhood One review I read on criticized Darrin for not useing a lot of bible passages until the last two chapters As someone who attended Darrin s church when I lived in St Louis, I know I have a bias in favor of him, but I think if you know Darrin s heart for contextualization which includes the idea [...]

    12. I thoroughly enjoyed this book for a few reasons 1 The book was approachable for any and all guys This would be a great book to read on manhood with non believers, young Christians, older men, or even my young son when he gets old enough I loved the accessibility of everything.2 This book is immensely practical Each chapter gave an action step as well as personal stories to connect with the reader I appreciated how each chapter had a clear goal and action step.3 It was not over the top on the Ch [...]

    13. The Dude s Guide to Manhood was not exactly what I expected it to be Knowing that Darrin is a pastor and having heard him speak before, I expected an updated, perhaps humorous challenge to men in the same vein as Disciplines of a Godly Man It is not, but that doesn t make it bad.After reading a couple of chapters, it occurred to me that I didn t exactly fit into what I am guessing is the target audience for this book Any guy can read this, but if you re looking for a meatier read with connecti [...]

    14. Darrin Patrick attempts to give men today a road map for navigating manhood This is something that is much needed in our culture Men just don t know what it means to be men and I think this is a good read for someone interested in knowing about biblical manhood The areas that Patrick covers are massively important A man s determination, his response to criticism, his discipline, the way he feels about work, his contentment, the way he loves his wife and children, the way he loves his friends, hi [...]

    15. I enjoyed reading the book It s a guide to men and women to how it s like to be a man Community always expects a lot from a man, still rarely a man gets trained or guided to how to meet those expectations Men are expected to figure it out all on their own Women would find this a good read too as the book will help them understand men , and understand the rule they can play as women in forming and supporting a man.My only problem with the book was the religious touch, especially that it focus on [...]

    16. I have mixed feelings about this book On one hand, I agree with much of what Darrin Patrick says, and found myself highlighting a number of passages including one of my favorite quotes whose source I had forgotten On the other hand, there are a lot of imperatives in this book but not a lot of background and explanations The author is very much and by his own admission of a type A, sports loving workaholic type of guy, and writing from that perspective he is effective in communicating with that [...]

    17. Overall, I think this book is a great and simple read for men Patrick pulls no punches throughout the book, and even reveals a lot about his pre saved self A couple of notes, I think this is primarily geared toward non believers After reaching the end and seeing that he is the chaplain of the Cardinals, I can see how this book might have had them in mind when he was writing it Secondly, he has some great quotes in it I realized that unyielding determination was indispensable for genuine change a [...]

    18. Read through this with a guy from our church Very helpful book that lends itself to group discussion or one on one conversations Lots of practical suggestions The structure of the book was 1 This is the kind of man you should be 2 You can t do it on your own 3 Jesus did and he offers forgiveness and makes it possible for us to change As a pastor who knows that lots of people struggle to make it through a whole book, I would have preferred that the gospel identity be front loaded and sprinkled th [...]

    19. This is an easy and good read, one to give a guy who doesn t read a lot but would like a kick in the pants to get going or even if he wouldn t I bought it initially for the chapter titles 1 Get It Done Become a Determined Man2 Pay Attention and Learn Something Become a Coachable Man3 Train, Don t Just Try Become a Disciplined Man4 Love Your Work Become a Working Man5 Get Satisfaction Become a Content Man6 Love a Woman Become a Devoted Man7 Love Kids Become a Family Man8 Say, I Love You, Man The [...]

    20. Great book on a great topic manhood Be warned this book pulls no punches Darrin Patrick is a straight shooter who engages guys in real talk The book would be great for a number of different settings 1 on 1s, groups, leadership training Patrick spends 10 chapters discussing the character of a real dude which finds its archetype in the Ultimate Hero, Jesus The book offered some helpful, real life wisdom, solid biblical reflection on masculinity, and the gospel motivation to fight to be a man in an [...]

    21. Rating 3.75Patrick being the chaplain for the St Louis Cardinals has probably got to talk with a lot of men In this book, he discusses biblical manhood He talks about the importance of accountability and how to find and set that up He talks about how to truly love your wife and kids Patrick s style is very forward You don t have to guess what he is trying to point out and you don t have to worry there being too much religious rhetoric He breaks everything down and makes it so easy a caveman coul [...]

    22. If you re a man, then you will really enjoy this book because it provides practical steps to becoming a better Christian husband and father without simply repeating the word Jesus over and over While He is obviously worth infinite praise and glory, simply repeating his name is not a useful tool to encouraging young men to be better men Patrick lays out all of the qualities of true manhood and then wraps it up by bringing it back to Jesus This is exactly the book I ve been searching for for years [...]

    23. I agree with most everything and think Patrick scetches an appealing picture of manhood, but it seems as if he was writing in an attempt to reach the ears of non Christians two forwards, one by Duck Dynasty and the other by Steven Jackson , meaning he doesn t rely on his strength of biblical and theological knowledge as support, which is admirable, but means that much of his work is unsupported assertions Even though I agree with the assertions I am at a loss for why any non Christian would find [...]

    24. This book was so practical and extremely helpful for me as a young man aspiring to be a man like Jesus Darrin offers tons of relatable illustrations and examples of how we can be a biblical and masculine man in each chapter This has become a subject for me that I would love to continue to read about for the rest of my life because I ll never stop having to be reminded of how to be a true biblical man.

    25. This had some really good parts to it, then other parts that were just so so I loved the premise of the book, but thought some of it could have been developed I felt like the author hit his stride in chapter 11 where Jesus is seen as the ultimate hero, the fulfillment of everything a man is to be This was a good introduction to a topic that needs to be written about and discussed much .

    26. A Swiss Army Knife for men of all types Challenging and with several profound truths, this book will help define a Biblical man Occasionally, the book asserts without proper support Also, like a Swiss Army Knife, this book is very versatile but may not be the single best resource for a given target audience A worthwhile read that will spur further thought.

    27. Overall interesting read I guess Since he is a chaplain for the St Louis Cardinals he has a lot of sport related examples, which I couldn t relate due to not being into sports I wish he would of inserted the Gospel through out the book and not just the last chapter This book could of been shorter instead of extra fluff you could tell he put in to make it longer.

    28. I thought this book covered a lot of good points for men to consider However, I felt that most of the time the author would mention areas for men to improve or focus on without really guiding the reader on how to do it I would have liked to have seen information in this area, but other than that it was a good book that would be perfect for men in their 20s or about to enter college.

    29. I picked up this book for 2 reasons 1 The author is my pastor 2 I was intrigued Each chapter denotes what a manly man should be A coachable man, a committed man, etc While I liked the message, I kept wondering where Jesus was He appears at the very end, a crescendo of sorts I would recommend it for men who are curious about faith or looking for manly life advice.

    30. Darrin Patrick presents an honest assessment of the problems plaguing men today, provides practical insight and wisdom, and points us to Christ as the ultimate example of manhood to be emulated A must read.
