More About Edwin Louis Cole
Dr. Edwin Louis Cole (1922-2002), known as "the father of the Christian men's movement," was called by God to speak with a prophetic voice to the men of this generation. To that end, he founded the Christian Men's Network, a ministry that continues to strengthen men by reaching thousands each month with the reality that manhood and Christlikeness are synonymous. As a pastor, evangelist, missionary, business executive, and denominational leader, Dr. Cole, together with his late wife, Nancy, served the Lord in ministry for more than fifty years until his death in 2002. Over four million copies of his books are in circulation today in more than forty languages, and his work and vision are still carried on by his "sons" in the faith--godly men who were touched by Dr. Cole's ministry.

Reviews - What do customers think about Maximized Manhood?
A must for the American man Feb 21, 2006
Cole captures simple truths in every day life that society has lost over the past few decades. His simple understanding of biblical principles concerning the role of the man serve as a necessary lesson to today's American man who lives in a society that seeks to destroy the very essence of manhood. Well written, scripturally sound and very informative.
Must Reading for Every Man Nov 25, 2003
This is my second reading of Maximized Manhood, and although it is over twenty years old, it still speaks with a clarion voice to men that manhood and Christlikeness are synonymous. Subtitle A Guide Top Family Survival, Cole rightly discerns that the role of the man, which is under attack from political and cultural left, must conform to his biblical antecedents if the family is going to survive in the future. This book is really apolitical, as Cole does not specially identify the leftist institutions that seek to destroy or redefine the American family and the biblical role of the male, outside of commenting on and condemning the rising tide of feminism and pornography.
Speaking as a man to men, Cole rejects the insipidism of much evangelical thought and practice. He rightly discerns that nowhere in the Scripture are men invited to repent of their sins and accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior; rather, the Bible commands men to repent. The idea of giving an invitation for men to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior is foreign to the New Testament. Cole also attacks the psychologicalization of the Christian faith. The idea of sin has been supplanted by of having problems. Cole points out that if you only have a problem you can get sympathy for it or understating for it, or professional help. Sins, on the other hand, have to be repented, confessed and forsaken.
Yes, the book is somewhat dated. Illustrations often refer to a culture that is over twenty years old. Even the revised version still reflects that old culture. But do not let this get in your way. Cole is a master of setting forth biblical truth in succinct phrases or coleisms such as: You can pitch personality, but you must build character; The greatest thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother; Some things in life are more important than life itself; The Kingdom of God is built on truth, not human sentiment. The list goes on and on.
Is this a great book? Probably not. Will this book change your life? Yes, if you read it and apply its principles. It may not be a great book but Dr. Cole was a great man. Read it and learn what it means to be a man after God's own heart.
Required reading for men... Oct 3, 2001
It's true. No guy should enter any serious relationship without first reading this book. I'm leading a men's group that's studying MM and, down the road, other books by Ed Cole.
Manhood is a serious and significant business Jun 16, 2001
Awesome book! Right to the heart of manhood as God intends for it to be. Not a book for anyone who is not serious in growing or knowing the raw truth. Once you know the truth, it's hard to avoid your conscience. It made me to sit up and seriously meditate on my relationship with my creator. Consequently, I made new committments to Him and my wife and daughter as well. It is also excellent reading for wives. However, if your husband's a weenie this book could be troublesome. But if you're the woman God intends you to be, you can help him get there. This is an excellent start.
A Life Changing Book May 14, 2001
This is one of the most important books a man can read, other than the Bible. This book will change your life as a man, father, husband, brother and son. This is the only book I have ever read that literally challenges you to be the man God meant for you to be. If applied to your life you will never be the same.
