Item description for No More Excuses: Be the Man God Made You to Be by Tony Evans & Bill McCartney...
Overview The difficulty of emotional pain and spiritual setbacks is different from any physical challenge, and many men are not comfortable or well-equipped to grapple with them. Tony Evans gives the kind of advice and inspiration men need to battle on through the most difficult circumstances.
Men look up to the guys who can take a hit and keep going. We respect the fighter who picks himself up off the canvas after a knock-out punch and hangs in until the final bell. The quarterback who gets blindsided but doesn't fumble the ball earns our approval. Physical toughness like this is admirable, but it takes more than guts to become the men God made us to be, especially when the struggles we face are personal and close to the heart.

This is an excellent book. I bought it for my teenage son and he loved it so much, he has asked for more books by this author. The author's straightforward, no nonsense approach to life in general is excellent. I would recommend this book for any male, young and old alike. It will open your eyes.
No More Excuses, No More Shortfalls Apr 25, 2008
This book is a must read. I understand it is 10 years old but when you read it you forget that. It is relevant to the life we live today. Tony explores all the excuses we (men) use as to why we are not good husbands, fathers, friends etc. Tony crushes all of those excuses using the only book that really matters, the Bible. The Biblical references is what makes this book so powerful. It is one thing to read a book where someone is telling you how they made it through hard times. Most of us will read those types of books and think it does not pertain to me personally. However Tony gave Biblical examples that far exceed any struggles we have ever had in life. One of the examples is of Joseph and how he was imprisoned for all those years. Prison in Biblical times are far worse than they are today despite what stories we hear from those who have been. This book is a life changer, if you open your eyes, ears and hearts to it. It is truly inspriational and I recommend this book to every MAN to read. There is so much I want to write about this book, but I do not want to give it away. There is no excuse in this life for any shortfalls we have. If you read this book I guarantee you will find that whatever you say is holding you back is minor compared to what is in the Bible. So read this book and throw your excuses out the door.

My husband and his men's accountability group love this book. He says that it has been extremely encouraging to each member and has been extremely helpful to each of them as they study together.
An Amazing Book To Change Into A Better Man Jul 26, 2007
This book is nothing but amazing. No More Excuses has changed my life only for the better. Tony Evans starts each chapter with a perfect segway into a story from the Bible that helps you understand where we should be as Christian Men. It's funny how many times I catch myself saying to people, "It sounds like you need to read no more excuses!"
