Stepping Up: A Call to Courageous ManhoodStepping Up: A Call to Courageous Manhood by Dennis Rainey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dennis Rainey does a great job of asking men to step up…from wherever they are now to the next step on their journey through manhood. Some of us need to know Christ. Some of us know Christ but have never gotten serious about knowing his Word and applying it to out lives. Still others have done that but never imparted the knowledge to their own wife or family. Some have mentored and discipled their families and need to reach out to someone without a dad. This is not a 5 steps to something kind of book. rather it is a call to boys to become young men, young men to become full grown men, men to become mentors, and mentors to become patriarchs. The numbers on not doing this are plain. Today 30 million kids are floundering without a dad or man of any kind in their life. Mr Rainey asks, “What are you gonna do about it?”
