What would happen if every pastor in america shared the vision to disciple every man in his church? Can You Imagine?
No man fails on purpose, yet our culture is suffering from the fallout of the "men problem." Increasingly men are living autonomous and unexamined lives, getting caught up in the frenzy of life, and becoming satisfied with tasteless and powerless Christianit

This is one of those books where I agree with the high-level ideas but not so much with the details. Morley correctly sees that pastoring men is 100% about discipleship. I couldn't agree more. I find Morley's view of what discipleship actually looks like to be much more of a mixed bag.

A perfect example comes early on in the book when Morley defines discipleship. He writes, "Discipleship is the process by which men become civilized." No it's not. The more study I do into masculinity, the more I

It feels like we are in a drought when it comes to men in the church - maybe not from being physically present, but rather a drought where many men are absent from involvement and we aren't seeing transformed lives like we should. This is just my own personal observation, however I have read of many others resounding very similar thoughts on this very topic. We are in desperate times where we need men of God to lead transformed lives and stand up, but that begs the question of how do we get men ...more

Broaden your vision to disciple every man (not just limited to your own church) to be godly.

Similar to John Eldredge’s big 3 (battle to fight, adventure to live, a beauty to rescue) in Wild at Heart, Morley’s book lists his big 3 C’s (categories of what men want): a meaningful CAUSE to give our lives to, COMPANION(s) to share with, and a CONVICTION or belief system that makes sense of our lives.

He then launches into the Biblical call-equip-send mentality of discipleship, but then gives us pract

this is a book that asks a serious question on the why, what, where, and how too's of leading men in the faith.
While some of the material feels dated, there are some good points to glean from it if you are active in men's ministry. He builds up a discipleship program for men, but the thing I had an issue with is that if a church has its own program of discipleship, this seems to want to add a whole other level to it, and even asks you to run two programs at one time, and even buy into his progra

Men need discipleship. Jesus started it roughly 2,000 years ago and its just a relevant now as it was back then. Sadly, many in Christianity today do not have programs in place to disciple the men in their attendance. It is not that they do not have men but rather that they do not have specific resources for men to develop as men.

In his latest book Pastoring Men, Patrick Morley has written on the value of discipling men and the value that doing such can create. Recognizing the need for men to be

I can't say I agree with 100% of all Morley's psychological labels and conclusions, but this is a powerful and thought-provoking book on the importance of men's discipleship in the local church. Contains valuable insights about men and some very helpful, practical tips for Creating, Capturing, and Sustaining momentum in any ministry.
Dennis Thurman
