Overview Men's issues expert and bestselling author Farrar exposes the most painful tragedies of a man's life and shows how they also happened to the biblical King David.

Wisdom Sep 12, 2009
This was the first book I read by Farrar. I was in Ad Diwaniyah Iraq working 12 hour days, 7 days a week for quite some time and still I read it in 2 days. It changed me in such a way that I went looking for more of his books, he's truly God filled and gives you food for the soul and the way to cure a young mans hardened heart. Thanks Steve!

Another Winner! Jun 26, 2006
Farrar here writes another very relevant, readable book to add to his long list of successes. Although not as directly targeted to men's needs specifically, the author resonates with all his readers in describing severe trials and providing encouragement on how to weather them. Farrar is a top-notch writer -- I recommend this book highly, especially to Christian men familiar with his other works.
Steve does it again Jun 27, 2003
Once again, Steve Farrar has written a fantastic book. His frank, no holds barred style is refreshing in an era where people tiptoe around subjects. When you're hurting and going through trials, you don't need someone to tiptoe around the problem, you need practical advice and encouragement.
This book is extremely encouraging. He talks specifically about life's "pop quizzes" -- those trials we don't expect -- and how God uses these trials to shape our character and strengthen us. The problem is they're unexpected by nature, and we often can't really tell the positive effect until they're over with. Understanding that there is a purpose and reason behind such quizzes makes them more bearable.
Lots of examples from his own life, his friends, and the Bible make his points come alive and hit home in the best way possible. I liked it so much, I'm sending copies to a few friends that need to read it.
A Great book for Christians who are in the fiery trials Apr 22, 2002
While this book is an outstanding book for Christian men, it can easily be applicable to both men and women. Steve does an outstanding job of showing what we are to do when the trap doors of life send us into pits of despair. If you have ever been to the point where you needed to here from God and God is silent, this book shows we aren't the first. Men of the Bible like David, and Asaph had times when they were in the pits of despair, and they left trail markers to help guide us. Steve does a excellent job pointing these markers out that were left for us in the Psalms and explaining them. A book every Christian man should read so that when the trials and persecutions come, they will be able to navigate through them with the help of the Shephard. .
