Stepping Up

While holed up in my room at Shalom House during the Pastors’ Study Break I finished my (first) reading of Dennis Rainey’s new book, Stepping Up: A Call to Courageous Manhood. Some excerpts:

  • “Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important.”—Ambrose Redmoon
  • In order for a man to be courageous, he must know the truth about who God is.
  • Another good man standing alongside you will help you be courageous.
  • Pleasure and pain were both meant to be experienced by men.
  • “Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.”—Anais Nin
  • Initiative is at the heart of manhood.

For more on biblical manhood, consider attending the Desiring God conference at the end of the month, or come hear Doug Wilson/Bill Farley speak on spiritual parenting at the Downtown and North campuses.
