The Resolution for Men by Stephen and Alex Kendrick

“A man cannot be passive about what Scripture tells him to do for his family and expect to be found faithful to God in the end. He must see with spiritual eyes and realize that future generations are directly impacted by his daily decisions.”
—The Resolution for Men

The Resolution for Men is the inspiring book born out of Courageous, a new film by the makers of Fireproof coming to theaters nationwide in fall 2011. The movie, which presents a powerful story of strong male leadership, is an emotionally charged wake-up call to fathers whose influence upon their children and society is immeasurable. The Resolution for Men follows to challenge men of all ages to become as bold and intentional about embracing their responsibilities as leaders of their homes, marriages, and children.

Written by Stephen and Alex Kendrick, screenwriters of Courageous and authors of New York Times No. 1 best seller The Love Dare (five million copies sold), The Resolution for Men strategically inspires men to reconcile with their past, re-engage in the present by taking full responsibility for their wives and children, and then move forward with a bold and clear resolution for the future. Written in partnership with the movie and Priscilla Shirer’s new book, The Resolution for Women, it is designed to inspire a revolution.

Stephen Kendrick is senior associate pastor of preaching and prayer at Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia. He is also a screenwriter and movie producer and co-wrote the New York Times No. 1 best seller, The Love Dare, with his brother, Alex. Stephen and his wife, Jill, have four children.

Alex Kendrick is associate media pastor at Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia, and coauthor of The Love Dare. He helped establish Sherwood Pictures in 2003 and has directed and co-written each of its films: Flywheel, Facing the Giants, and Fireproof, playing the lead male role in those first two productions. Alex has appeared on ABC, CNN, FOX News, American Family Radio, The Glenn Beck Show, Janet Parshall's America, and many other national programs to discuss his award-winning work and ministry. He lives in Albany with his wife and five children.

Randy Alcorn is founder and director of Eternal Perspective Ministries and a best-selling author whose books include Heaven and Safely Home.

This book is the challenging  partner of the book Courageous Living and is written directly to the men of the present and the future. Each chapter correctly identifies the problems we as men experience today. The cost we pay individually and collectivly as the result of not taking our place as leaders in our families, our communities and our nation and stand up for the truth and the reality of our faith. When you take up this book and start reading you see a lot of yourself in the problems that surrounds you. This is truly a wake up call for men to take back the position of being a man as specially designed by God. We don't have to listen to the entertainment media that tells us we have to be tolerant wimps by the silly and unreal shows that portray men as weak and passive husbands. We are men and lets take our position seriously and provide the leadership our families so desperately are looking for.

This is a well written book, full of challenges and when we heed the call has so many blessings for us in the end. Who can deny the truth? I can't.
