Of all the books for Christian men, why buy this one?...
The Christian Book for Men is a plain talking resource for men navigating the Christian journey. With a solid emphasis on scripture, Neal's openness and own vulnerabilities come through in every chapter…. Crucially the author doesn’t shy away from the difficult subjects, so be prepared to feel a little uncomfortable as you read. All in all, a great new tool for the kitbag.

Chris has written an honest and transparent view of all the ills that men are facing in today’s challenging world….. This book is one that will encourage Christian men everywhere to open up about what has them bound, and jump into God’s Word with renewed vigour and a great expectation that ‘with God all things are possible!’

The days we live in are clouded with darkness. Chris does more than talk about that darkness in his new book; he shines light on it. The illumination in this book will drive out the darkness in your life, as well as those around you. It’s time for God’s men to be filled with light!

A 'From the heart' review by a British Christian in a USA prison:
"I truly believe that The Christian Book for Men should be on every man's bookshelf, whether he is a Christian or not? This is a must read. I can wholeheartedly endorse this book 100% and can confirm that if I had been given the opportunity to read this powerful, and at times a deep soul searching book ten years ago, I would not have found myself where I am now; in prison in the USA. This book opened my eyes not only to my failings, but also highlighted the many good things God had planned for me, and yet it took me to find myself in prison to witness the beauty of his (God's) wonderful works; and from this disastrous position I find myself in, I could finally resonate with what God had placed on Chris's heart to write. If this is the only book you read this year? 'MAKE IT THIS ONE' it changed my life. It will change yours too."

Chris Neal, like his Christian author wife Michele, has a deep passion for the Word of God, absolute truth, and evangelical conservative orthodox Christianity. ‘For the word of God is living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective]. It is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating as far as the division of the soul and spirit [the completeness of a person], and of both joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart.’ (Hebrews 4 verse 12 AMP)
Chris and Michele have both been deeply concerned by the amount of liberal theology and 'demonic deception' creeping into the Church worldwide, and so while many well-intentioned Church-going men focus their men's ministry around social events and ‘character-building’, Chris has only one God-given passion, and that is to see men discipled, trained, and transformed by obedience to the Word of God.
In his refreshing new book he reminds us that Jesus didn't say 'Go and have a good time together, men of God’, or even 'Go and evangelise’ (although we need to do that) but He said in Matthew 28 verse 19 and 20a (NIV) 'Go and make disciples… and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you'.
To begin with Chris thought, “Who am I Lord, to do this work?” Consequently he kept putting things off. But God is patient! Eventually he said “Ok, I’ll obey!” It started out as a rather large training module, but ended up as this book!
The book manuscript was finished towards the end of 2018 and after editing and completion it was published on 4th February 2019; exclusively available from Amazon and the author.
After hesitating over two front cover titles for this book, Michele and I prayed and said to the Lord that we just couldn’t decide. Because we so much wanted the title to be what God wanted, we decided to apply the biblical principle of ‘casting lots’, and so we did this prayerfully and reverentially, to establish God’s title for the book.
‘THE CHRISTIAN BOOK FOR MEN’ was the result! Later we included the strap-line - 'Biblical Solutions to the Battles Facing Men' which precisely describes what the book is all about.
This unique work - exclusively for men, whether believing or unbelieving men - is designed to teach a number of godly principles from the Bible. The book has two distinct sections or volumes, the first volume is entitled ‘Overcoming Soul Battles’ and the second, ‘Overcoming Behaviour Battles’. The volumes explain the biblical truth that all of humankind is living daily in a battle between choosing to do what is right or what is wrong. Have you ever wondered why you often choose to do what you know to be wrong, instead of doing the right thing in any given situation? The Bible talks about this, and we learn from God's Word that the forces of evil are lined up against all believers, and we will come under constant attack so we need to know how to protect ourselves. We must know how to defeat those forces, and so in Volume One, I talk about four things: You, have a God-ordained plan for your life and God wants to use you for His purposes. God loves you DEEPLY, irrespective of your past; that is a FACT! You will find out (or rediscover) how to be 'a man after God's own heart', how to resist temptation, and how to overcome sin. In essence, Volume One is concerned with protecting your soul.
In Volume Two, I turn to the battles that rage against us and within us which cause bad behaviour, and I teach solid principles from the Bible on how to be a better husband, a better father; how to be a better man in the workplace, how to love your parents in difficult times, and I end by explaining how to resolve the many conflicts that we have to deal with as we journey through life with others. If you take a look at the 'CHAPTER INTRODUCTIONS' page on this website you can read the opening paragraphs of each chapter of the book.
The book has been written in such a way that you can start anywhere you like in the book, because each chapter is complete in itself. So if your immediate area of interest is how to resolve conflict then start at the end - Volume Two chapter Five! Enjoy reading 'bite-size' pieces, instead of having to start at the beginning and trawl your way through. After all, the book is designed for men - in more ways than one!
