by Don Aycock

Review:

For a long time it was said that Christian men just didnít shop in Christian bookstores, but of late this has not been so true. God's Man, edited by pastor and author Don M. Aycock, is a devotional book that is targeted squarely at male readers. Its topics include sports, the military, role modeling, cars, church leadership, and a wide variety of other matters of special interest to men. The 48 contributing writers include such outstanding men as Len Goss, former senior editor at B&H Publishing, Mark Johnson, managing editor of Preaching magazine, Ken Walker, editor of Manpower, Rev. Ken Corr, pastor of First Baptist Church of Memphis, and Dr. Marvin Douglass, a private practice counselor. The book is separated into 52 weekly sections containing seven separate readings for the days of the week.

This book is written the way men like to confront matters: straight from the shoulder and right to the point. My favorite section is Week 20 on "A Man and His Work." Using biblical references it addresses the crisis of unemployment, business ethics, and proper work motivation. It takes only ten minutes to read the Scripture references and each short devotion, yet there is an impact created that stays with you throughout the day.

The devotions are set up so as to vary the daily references between the Old and New Testaments and across all the books of the Bible. Each devotion ends with a prayer designed to be read and shared by the book's reader. For men who are active yet want to maintain their Christ-centered perspective on life, these concise and content-solid devotions can provide encouragement, motivation, insight, and joy.
