Becoming a Man After reading this I can identify with many of the struggles shared by the author. I grew up without a father from the age of seven until I was married. The Church's responsibility to care for widows and their children is short lived if at all. Kudos to Can on this excellent book. Sep 19, Rafael Lione rated it really liked it. I recommend this ebook to everyone who might still be struggling with what is to be a man.

I was hoping the book would be more instructional than an autobiography. Hopefully he gets to it later. I am continuing to read to the end. I was glad the book got better and it was the perfect ending that I was hoping for. Instead of living on the Northwest Coast and being a carpenter, Xan Hood lives in Colorado and uses a paintbrush in place of a hammer. Each chapter covers a small concept of manhood, character quality, or relays a practical life experience.
What I liked about the book: - Several chapters allow you to see the author process ideas and concepts for the first time, you get to see how a young man grows and responds to different situations and pressures. Specific areas that he nailed: - Addressing the nobility of every calling.
the long history of the phrase ‘blood, sweat, and tears’
Hood does a great job of explaining how "white collar" men envy the physical aspect of manual labor and how "blue collar" men sometimes feel like they can never rise above their present station. If your church has large populations of blue and white collar workers, this book could provide leadership with excellent insight. I will note that he draws from Wild at Heart , but he had a diversified portfolio of sources that allows this book to be much more balanced.

I'm a female and I read this book. I was actually quite blessed by it.
There are certain aspects of understanding how to encourage a man without coddling him that gets very murky for us sisters. There are times we are just as confused with men as they are with us - only we aren't usually as understood when we call them "crazy" because we can't make sense of what we are trying to process or take in. The step-by-step of watching the author become a man in his own eyes, as God revealed his true ide I'm a female and I read this book. The step-by-step of watching the author become a man in his own eyes, as God revealed his true identity back to him with the wildlife landscape was refreshing.
Reading this book was a lot like watching a movie, but far more satisfying. God bless this brother for being so open as to share his story. I'd recommend this book to any young man who is struggling to find his own identity - especially as he stands at the threshold of college years coming to a close. This is a very readable book, but the ease of reading should not lead the reader to think of it as shallow.
Xan takes the reader through the sweat, blood and tears that make him into the man he becomes when he faces himself. I'm sure it's a book many men will relate to, but I found it both interesting and helpful to read from a woman's perspective. It's a book to reread and see something different every time. Jan 02, Bobby rated it it was amazing. One of the most relatable books on manhood I have read Unlike other books on being a Christian man, this is one for men of the 21st Century.
Xan Hood has accomplished a highly relatable book that is about his personal journey as a man. The more I read this book, the more I enjoyed and learned from it. John Eldredge says every man who feels young inside should read this book. I respectfully submit that every woman who loves her men should read this book.
