Excellent resource for Men

I am surprised by some of the reviews here. The book is written in plain language and is very direct in pointing out that men, are failing to fulfill there roll as God intended. It then gives excellent guidance on how take a stand for your family. I have given this book to fellow Christians and those who are not believers, and never have heard anything but positive feedback. In addition to this I have lead men in this study as a group and the results have been wonderful. If you are not REALLY interested at looking objectively / critically at yourself, then don't buy it. Some reviewers here seem unable to move toward accountability. Another reviewer made comment that the book was racist, in that it mentions many current african american families as lacking fathers in the home. As a black man, I realize the truth is hard to take. This is NOT offensive, but enlightening. Great book, and current edition has study guide that is helpful as well.

Like a good movie, you'll want to experience this again and again.

I have read the other reviews of Point Man. I personally disagree with the negative reviews and subscribe instead to the positive ones, as this book has been a most influential read. (have read it 3x and will do so again.) The author puts forth the premise that the family is one of God's gifts, and that the family unit is one of the most influential means for learning God's love/initiating a relationship with Jesus Christ that covers multiple generations/ensuring the continuity of faith. So where is Satan's most effective battle...the family. And how to most effectively neutralize the family...eliminate the point man (i.e-eliminate the Godly effectiveness of the man; destroy the bond between husband and wife/father and child...) I recently took this book to China with me (along with my Bible) for a 3rd reading on the 14 hour flight. Showed it to my Chinese national guide who was about to become a father for the 1st time. He couldn't read it fast enough and couldn't thank me enough for introducing him with such valuable guidance.

Every Man Can Become a Man of God

This excellent resource for every (any) man has helped me and my small group (men) grow in our Christian walk. There are principles covering all areas where we struggle. I read it four years ago, and I have quotes from it in my daily planner, on my desk at work, and in my Sunday School lessons - even to this day.

the most important book a christian man can read

when i was first given a copy of this book in 1994 i read it on the advice of a friend. it literally changed my life! i always knew being a good father was important, but didn't realize how important. i also wasn't aware how important it is to be a godly husband. i have since met steve farrar and ws even further blessed. i would reccomend that any man, christian or not, should read this book. you owe it to your wife, your children and yourself. i have repeatedly referenced this book for speeches and sunday school lessons for five years. farrars other books are also wonderful. but this one, "point man" could possibly be the most important book any man can ever read besides the bible. God bless... keith reid

This book's impact on my life is second only to the Bible.

Steve Farrar has touched the essence of what it takes to be a Husband and Father in his book Point Man. He steps up to men with an "in your face" look at the realities of life as a man in today's society and provides sound advice on how to stay focused as the head of the family. He doesn't shy away from telling men that they will have to make hard choices and his words dare any man to make the wrong choice by providing "real-life" examples of the impact wrong decisions by Fathers and Husbands have had on families. Point Man should be required reading for every male prior to marriage. And, as the father of three little girls, it will be required reading for all potential sons-in law.
