In Point Man, Steve Farrar shows men not only why they should take the lead in the family, but also how to go about this great assignment.
This bestselling classic encourages and equips Christian men to lead their families successfully through hazards and ambushes like divorce, promiscuity, suicide and drug addiction. In this book men will find practical insights on topics such as a father’s influence, maintaining purity, and husband-and-wife teamwork. In this war, renowned men’s author Steve Farrar emphasises, Jesus Christ is looking for men who will not die, but live for their families.
The book’s main theme is on being a better husband and/or father. It narrows in on men taking the baton and standing up to be counted as they take up their God-given role of being the head of the family. It is a very practical and well-written piece.
Steve also puts in a lot of time churning out statistics based on his research, however, the book remains readable. It’s written in a clear and very direct manner, so there is no room for guess work. Chapter 9: “How to Raise Masculine Sons and Feminine Daughters,” is a beauty. It deals openly with the fact that a vast majority of homosexuals became such because they did not see a masculine role model in the home.
So if you are a husband/father or are planning on being one, please do yourself a favour and get this book. If you are a preacher and are planning on preaching a series on the home, parenting or just being “God’s man,” this will be an excellent volume to have at arm’s reach.
