I read this as part of men's bible study group with my church in Spring 2015. Substantively, it was a good book--especially for a group like that, where there was quite a diversity of backgrounds and interests. That said, there are many parts of the book that IMHO haven't aged well, and mark it inescapably as a late product of the 80s/90s culture wars. Once one looks back some of the rhetorical flourishes and rants, the basic bones are solid and the principles it espouses are well put. ( )

I enjoyed this book immensely. It is one of the better Christian books I have read for men, as it goes beyond staying away from smutty women.Not that it's important to know, however every Christian resource/sermon for men tells you to stay away from smutty women. Speaking as a man myself, it is not the only sin that men struggle with, and Kent Huhes brings those up.
Kent Hughes provides insights, if not known already, about how men are lacking involvement with male friendships, church activities and community interests. It also acknowledges that spiritual diciplines is hard work. Definitely challenging. ( )

Excellent challenge towards godliness. Hughes carefully avoids legalism, and exhorts men to disciplined lives in 17 key areas. Chapters on friendship, prayer, and ministry were particularly helpful. Hughes writes clearly and forthrightly, and provides an excellent spur. This will be helpful to breeze through regularly as a checklist, which is why his chapter on grace is a fitting and encouraging conclusion.
