The Measure of a Man

Since 1974, men around the world have practiced the biblical teaching in this book to live by God’s terms. Now you can follow in their footsteps to reach God’s standards as a father, a husband, and a mentor to other men—and Gene Getz tells you how to make the grade. True masculinity isn’t measured by strength but by these 20 biblical guidelines drawn from the apostle Paul’s letters to Timothy and Titus. With ideas for real-life applications and words of inspiration, here is Gene’s greatest work— fully rewritten and updated to speak in the most practical terms to men from every generation.
