Publisher's Summary

Play the man. Make the man.
Somewhere along the way, our culture lost its definition of manhood, leaving generations of men and men-to-be confused about their roles, responsibilities, and relationships and the reason God made them men. It's into this "no-man's-land" that New York Times best-selling author Mark Batterson declares his mantra for manhood: Play the man.
In this inspiring call to something greater, he helps men understand what it means to be a man of God by unveiling seven virtues of manhood. Mark shares inspiring stories of manhood, including the true story of the hero and martyr Polycarp, who first heard the voice from heaven say, "Play the man". Mark couples those stories with practical ideas about how to disciple the next generation of men who will put God first, family second, and career third.
This is more than an audiobook; it's a movement of men who will settle for nothing less than fulfilling their highest calling to be the men and the fathers God has destined them to be.

Want Man Guidelines?

If you are a young man who wants to know how to be a man and a father, or a man and a father who wants to know how to do your job as a man and father better, this is the book for you. Mark Batterson is a very good example of what it means to recognize you're not doing what you should and then beginning to do it. he doesn't claim to be perfect, but he does have some amazing examples and sets an amazing example himself. This book is highly recommended.
