Real honesty about the real issues men face

Many men are fighting secret wars against workaholism, sexual addictions, substance abuse, pornography, and extramarital affairs. Most are reluctant to seek help. But men don't have to struggle alone and become casualties. They can win these battles.

The need to talk honestly about the real issues facing Christian men has never been greater. Though they may feel reluctant to seek help and embarrassed to admit it, many men are fighting secret wars against stress, burnout, unhealthy relationships, temptation, and sexuality. What many don't know, however, is that these battles can be won.

This newly repackaged edition of Men's Secret Wars provides tested strategies for defeating the secrets that threaten men's private lives. Through the candid stories from the author and other men who have fought similar battles, readers will learn to recognize the "at risk" factors that precede the development of a secret life and will take comfort in the fact that they are not alone in their struggles. Includes new writing from the author, personal growth questions, and a leader's guide for small groups.

Through the candid stories of Patrick Means and other men who have fought similar battles, you can learn to recognize the "at risk" factors that precede the development of a secret life and take comfort in the fact that you are not alone in your struggle. This new edition includes new writing from the author, along with the Personal Growth Plan and a leader's guide for small groups and counselors.

Patrick Means treads where the average Christian man has been trained not to go. Through frank testimony of personal moral failure, repentance, and redemption he allows the rest of us to see where the spiritual land mines are BEFORE we must cross the field.

Christian men have become accustomed to hearing impotent "just pray about it" advice for their struggles. We've learned to act as though everything is OK when inside we've been dying.

Means exposes the facade of modern Christian man for what it is -- a seemingly solid covering for a cancer of unresolved pain beneath. By honestly sharing his trials and temptations he catalogs his own journey to wholeness, while at the same time offering practical, solid advice for how we can do the same.

Come into your own as the man God created you to be -- don't settle for second best when an incredible blessing awaits. Men who are vulnerable, sharing their hurts with other men, are the true heroes of this world and the next.
