Hero: Becoming the Man She Desires (Paperback)
You already know it's not easy being a single man in this culture today. But it is easy to be overwhelmed, to feel helpless and hopeless about living by God's high standards for singles. It's easy to cave in to the pressures of this sex-soaked world and accept defeat-blaming the media, the culture, even girlfriends who don't know how tough it can be.
But many men have read books like "Every Young Man's Battle" and "Tactics" and have committed themselves to stand strong and pure in the power of God, and to go on the offensive against the onslaught of negative stereotypes. Some have suffered. Some have fallen. But many have experienced victory-and you can be among them.
What makes those committed men so desirable to women? "Be Her Hero" is their motto. From best-selling author Fred Stoeker, along with his son Jasen, come the straightforward insight and real-life examples you're looking for to help you take personal purity to its logical conclusion. Here's straight truth with irrefutable evidence of what makes an ultimate hero to women who long for men of faith-men who stand by their convictions and make their world a safer and better place.
Are you ready to accept the challenge?
