Revised and Expanded Edition of a Life-Changing Book
Recovering nice guy Paul Coughlin points the way for all men who yearn to live a life of boldness and conviction--like Jesus. Using anecdotes from his own life, powerful and poignant stories, and vivid examples from our culture, Coughlin shows how men can say no to the "nice guy" syndrome and yes to a life of purpose, passion, and vitality.
In this revised and expanded edition, Coughlin adds vital insights on the changes he's seen in churches and the greater culture in the decade since No More Christian Nice Guy was first published. This radical and hopeful message elevates the true biblical model of manhood and now includes testimonials from men and women whose lives have been altered by this book. Coughlin also looks at the shifting expectations men face in relationships and in the workplace, and how younger Christians, in particular, are subject to harmful views about masculinity.
Part inspiration, part instruction, and part manifesto, this book gives men the courage to move from passivity to assertiveness.
- The narrator kills great content with his uppity ambiance.
It is very clear that the producer did not read this book or it's synopsis before casting the narrator. The narrator's high nose voice makes this a difficult book to listen to and it becomes quite annoying listening to such a weak voice speak about things written so passionately. This narrator should stick to nursery rhymes and leave manly books to more manly sounding voices. This performance is terrible.
- Welcome to NMCNG 101: Intro to Changing the Status Quo
Dear Prospective Reader,
Do you want to carry on with a life where rules have you locked rigid, where you try to please all and 'deny yourself'? Are you sick of that feeling of being guilty, boxed in, and horribly compromised, downtrodden, taken advantage of, and making yourself a rug for others?
If this is you, you should be. Many a common American church has twisted scripture, and has no man come to lend you a hand to freedom? You think to yourself, "There must be more to Christianity than this pitiful existence" and think of finding an exit, be it death, spouse abuse, leaving the church, or going on a drinking binge.
HOLD ON THEN! This book is for you.
If you listen to this book, I will tell you what it is like. It is drinking from the source of manliness.
This book will:
* Define the problem of niceness
* Expose the systemic emasculation and perversion of Christianity on our churches
* Explain how the systems of abuse start and are perpetuated
* Give you permission to step out and be a man
* Explain what constitutes a man
* Show you how Jesus was a man
* Give practical steps for how to be shrewd and assertive
This book explains things well, is easy to understand, and presents truth in a way that is easy to understand and follow along. Presenting truth with accuracy is challenging. You'll love this book.
Get this book if you're sick of being nice, have explosive anger and can't figure out why, feel excessively passive, have no backbone, or just plain want a map of manliness. This is your book.
What are you waiting for? Get up off of your blessed assurance and buy this book!
