2 Great Reviews on Reformational Manhood

514yr-WNCxL._SL500_SY300_So far, nobody has really come out and said, “Your book should be burned.”  So, that’s a good thing, I guess.  However, in my experience, the books that people are calling for to be burned are the ones that usually change the world… or at least societal tradition.  Though I have no idea how many books have been sold, and I realize Reformational Manhood has a unique and specific audience, I am continuing to pray that God would use it greatly to engage the hearts of men — young and old — to be gospel-centered warriors in his great Kingdom.

Thank you to Owen Strachan, at Patheos, and the Director of The Council of Biblical Manhood & Womanhood (CBMW), for his kind words toward the book.

And, thank you, to Ben Birdsong, a student pastor in Birmingham, AL, who also serves with Youth Ministry 360.

Below are some excerpts from their reviews.  You can read Owen’s review HERE.  And Ben’s HERE.

From Owen:

In his well-written book, Greg mixes in textual explanations with personal reflections, and he gets your attention. I particularly enjoyed his story about how he, in trying to be a godly protector of women, had to face down a guy who was threatening his girlfriend (90-92). Get Reformational Manhood, read it with your son or your youth group, and be inspired to go to work in Christ’s kingdom as a man.

From Ben:

Gibson takes a very gospel-centered approach to the topic of biblical manhood.  He is not into writing a book full of boxes to check off in order to become a better man.  Gibson realizes the truth that we are all imperfect man trying to follow the perfect man – Jesus.  Christ is seen as the hero of the book and is presented as the only truly perfect man.
