Summary: Dan Doriani understands the challenges of being a man, and he knows you don’t need more man-made lists to excel as a husband, father, or leader. The new man in Christ is shaped by knowing God through his Word, because the way of a godly man is the way of his God.
With a focus on honing character rather than following techniques, Doriani seeks out the biblical pattern for masculinity that transcends culture. Discover how you can reflect God’s character in marriage, friendships, wealth, work, fitness, play, and more. You won’t find checklists for self-improvement (or three ways to grill a steak), but you will find clarity, insight, honesty, encouragement, and freedom in the Man who is ultimately our Savior, not just our example. You’ll even find ideas for games to play with your kids!
Each chapter includes questions for group study or discussion with spouses. This is a revised and expanded edition of The Life of a God-Made Man (Crossway, 2001).

What Others Say About This Book:
“An accessible, biblical, and inspiring vision for manhood. I recommend it to Christian men everywhere.”
—Darrin Patrick, Author of The Dude’s Guide to Manhood and The Dude’s Guide to Marriage
“Dan is a proven thinker and leader. . . . He has somewhat miraculously managed to peel away the popular, overly-sensitive-to-public-opinion reinterpretation of what it means to be a man, while at the same time remained sensitive to the cultural moment in which believers must actually live out their faith. No small feat!”
—Patrick Morley, Founder of Man in the Mirror
