What's the most courageous thing you've ever done? 

As men, all of us face decisions in life that demand courage. Big or little, complex or straightforward, these choices—let’s call them battles—matter a great deal. One courageous choice leads to another; tomorrow’s integrity depends on today’s bravery.

Dennis Rainey identifies five stages of a man’s journey through life—boyhood, adolescence, manhood, mentor, and patriarch—and examines a man’s responsibilities at each step. Rainey calls men to seize the moment and take action, stepping up to responsibility and inspiring others in the process. It’s about embracing courage, rejecting passivity and cowardice.

Ultimately, you’ll be challenged to be the man on your battlefield.


Dennis Rainey hosts FamilyLife Today®, a nationally syndicated broadcast bringing help and hope to nearly 1000 communities in the U.S. He also serves as president of FamilyLife® in Little Rock, Arkansas. He and his wife, Barbara, have written numerous books, including Parenting Today’s Adolescent. They have six children and a growing group of happy grandchildren.


  • It Taught Me to Be A Man

    By joshua0107
    This was an encouraging book that challenged me in practical ways to become the leader of my family. Specifically the "Manhood Step" opened my eyes to things I was neglecting as head of my home. From house hold projects, to leading in crucial areas such as finances, this book provided insight and encouragement in how to lead my home. In addition, this book challenged me to be open minded to being mentored, mentoring others and, ultimately, becoming a patriarch for my future grand kids.
  • A "REAL MANS" look at through the years in the life of a husband, father, grandfather, and patriarch

    By Ironman3591
    Exciting stories of real life heroes, successful men being honest about their lives and truth about why so many men are still stuck in boyhood well into their adult lives. "Stepping up" will encourage, inform, enlighten and mentor you regarding each of the critical phases of a mans life. Easy to read, Biblical principals, startling facts and hope for all men at any stage of life. Highly recommended!
  • Excellent for every man.

    Every man, whether young adult, fast paced father or senior citizen, will come away from this book with greater wisdom and knowledge of what it means to be a man of God and live a life of legacy. A word of thanks goes to the author.
  • On Fire

    By Guy Saxon
    Not every person gets to know a man like in this book, but hopefully from reading it more men will become leaders like they are meant to be. Use it as a tool to becoming a Godly father, a better husband, and a leader. Its helped me and know what I need to do to help more men to step up.
  • Not original!

    By Jaydog995
    Just got an email about this book and laughed! John Eldredge already wrote this book titled Fathered By God. Only he called his SIX stages Boyhood, Cowboy, Warrior, Lover, King, and Sage.

    I'm not a reader, i'm a listener. And besides, i got jailbroken iPhone, so it doesn't go for 4.3.3 or later..
