Tender Warrior by Stu Weber
In sixteen chapters Weber maps out the need for completeness. He dissects the areas into personal, family, friends and occupation. He ends each chapter with discussion starters for small groups or individuals who are using this book He titles these A Man Faces Himself and A Man Meets With His Friends.
Weber shares his life with the reader. It has been said that a good example is better than any lecture. In this area he does fine. He also uses Biblical illustrations of how men acted in the period they lived. He attempts to show you are an example to others.
It is a highly interesting book. I found myself stopping from time to time in the reading to think through what I have just read. And when I came to the discussion helps at the end of each chapter I spent some time going over them. This is something I don’t normally do. But he has such a style of writing that makes you want to respond.
It has been subtitled Every Man’s Purpose- Every Woman’s Dream- Every Child’s Hope.
I recommend this for all men and maybe their girlfriends. It is also useful for a small group study. Take your time. Don’t rush it.
