One issue for non-believers in this book Oct 12, 2009
Hero is all about living the life Christ wants us to live as guys when it comes to relationships with girls and how we live our lives for those girls. There was one issue I had with this book though, the author tells his oldest son's life story and is very proud of him (rightfully so I might add), but thus escalates him onto a pedestal that perhaps non-believers will find unattainable or impossible. The son and his now wife have written parts of the book which to me were truly just envious stories of their relationship, but provides hope for us single guys. It heavily focuses on relationships and sexual purity. It is very simple, but not just surface level stuff. It is to the point with Biblical references and personal stories from guys that have told their stories to the author.

Good book for all young men Jul 10, 2009
Our world is geared to promote sex outside of marriage. Small wonder many young people consider it normal. But Fred and Jasen Stoeker and Mike Yorkey have a different viepwont. Written for men, this book tackles the flood of sexual permissiveness overwheliming our lives today. In biblical times the worship of the false god Baal used sex in the worship service as a means of turning men away from Almighty God. This book points out that sexual immorality is a form of idolatry dating back to the worship of Baal. It's easy to excuse immoral behavior, both ours and others, by falsely claiming that it doesn't hurt anyone. Ask the person who has been lied to and cheated on if it hurts. Ask an unwed mother with a child to raise by herself if there was a hurt. Everything we do touches someone else. And our actions have consequences. Hero is a good for all generations. Recommeded.
Read this book and change your family and the country!!!! May 30, 2009
I am so pleased with "Hero". My husband is a pastor and is so impressed with not only the candid way the book is written, but the Biblical references as well. We have a 15 year old son and we use "Hero" as our evening devotion. Each night we get comfortable, read a section of "Hero" and spend about 20-30 minutes discussing what we read. It has given our son a voice and I believe he will be a more godly man. "Hero" has given my family a way to discuss topics that normally would not come up. I believe every teen, adult (men & women) need a copy of this book for themselves and every member of their extended families. Talk about sowing a good seed! Not only will this book change you and your families lives, but it will change the world if people will live by its powerful truths. The authors of this engaging book are true heroes to us all.
Must reading for young men! May 26, 2009
I didn't know this, but "Hero" ends a trilogy of books written by Fred Stoeker in the "Every Man" series. These books are more than instruction in Godly living: Fred truly bares his life for examination and example in a way that not only demonstrates integrity and a desire to reach young men early in their lives, but that makes him one of my heroes.
"Hero" examines the life of a young man who totally surrenders his life and his purity to God early in his life and how he succeeds, despite the odds of failure presented to him on every side.
The young man is Jasen Stoeker--and his father couldn't be more proud of him. In spite of a family curse that involved sexual issues and pornography, Jasen took his father's early teaching of 'fleeing youthful lusts' to heart and patterned his life after some beloved Bible heroes.
Fred makes the excellent case for American society's demise into the lust-filled environment we live in today, tracing it from the creation of Hugh Hefner's multi-billion dollar magazine to the vast array of internet pornography available at the click of the keyboard.
But he doesn't let us off the hook...WE are responsible for how we respond, and as Jasen has demonstrated, a life properly aligned with Christ early on can make all the difference in the world.
Drawing Old Testament parallels, this book is an eye-opening reading experience for this sheltered Christian mother! I know these things are out there, but never really focused on how they could affect MY SON even while he lives under my roof.
Shame on me for taking such a critical topic so lightly, and I'm going to get him to read this book with his father. I want my son to be a hero to his future wife, and to his female friends right now.
It's never too late! Get a copy of "Hero" and read it for yourself, educate your family, and use it in the men's studies at your churches and small groups. I'm giving "Hero" five out of five bookmarks, with an iron stake to drive into the ground, claiming back our youth for Christ.
