Publishers Description Are you ready to face life's tests? God tests a man. Into the flow of everyday life He sends "pop quizzes"-those unexpected trials that show us what we're made of; that reveal the true quality of our faith and character; that show our willingness to obey Him. "Every Man's Challenge," part of the best-selling Every Man series, will prepare you to obey. It does take guts to stand firm in facing what life throws our way. We need courage to acknowledge our own weaknesses and to change. We need understanding in handling moral dilemmas and family crises. Thankfully, God has given us the strength we need. By His power we can "participate in the divine nature" and triumph over our sins and the temptations and corruption of the world. The forty "exams" in this book, comprised of Scripture, stories, and reflective questions, will give you the necessary tools to draw closer to God and win life's battles. Used in your devotional times or for personal reflection or group study, you'll find strength to overcome sexual temptation, learn how to love your wife better, and gain increasing confidence to live as Christ did. In the defining moments of your life, you can obey God and pass the tests that challenge every man.

Pass on this one Mar 31, 2008
This is one of those psuedo-religious books that trys to take self-help, weak-mindedness and God's will and then throw it all together in a brew.
I give it to the author that he is very straight forward and actually goes deep into the problems that plague men. But I didn't find it interesting and I wouldn't recommend it unless I had a really weak-minded friend.
Must read. Nov 21, 2007
I've read the "Every Woman's Battle" and that was an excellent book. I purchased this book for someone and believe that it is equally excellent based on the contents of the book.
Worth Reading Jan 6, 2007
I enjoyed this book. It has thought provoking questions at the end of the chapters that will test your mettle. The real question isn't how far you are willing to go; it is how real you are willing to be. If you are willing to be brutally honest this book will definitely challenge you. This is especially true if you are married as I found several of the chapters geared towards married men. It is still an excellent read, even for a single guy.
Provocative and Challenging!! Oct 6, 2005
Having had this book for some time now, I'd usually read a chapter a day, and other times, a few chapters. That's how it's set up, but the authors provide a great deal to think about, and if you read the whole book in one sitting or two, the reader might miss some important points.
As it is, Arterburn and company has delivered what I'd considered a potentially explosive encourager to a man's walk with Christ. With many chapters dealing with intimacy, marriage, our walk with Christ, and temptation in its many forms, the questions at the end of each chapter are designed to provoke more than thought. More like action!!
