Best Helpful Books for Christian Men




During the nearly 30 years of marriage to my husband, I had always seen him reading the Bible, many books,  and listening to sermons to help him grow in His walk with God.

I thought about his books, many that he would read out of to his children or share while he was preaching and so grateful that it had such in impact on him. And I was grateful that he tried to share them with us.


I am a bookworm myself and usually have about 10 books on my nightstand that I will sift through! I recently posted a list of Best Books for Christian Women and then realized I didn't really have anything here for Christian men. So I thought that I would make a list for those of you who have husbands who like to read or would like to get your husband a book worth reading. Or maybe for a son, father-in-law, grandparent, son-in-law, etc.

We always recommend the Bible first and foremost! You can find Bibles here. 

These are just a few and not listed in any order . I definitely add to it as I remember and find more.

Here they are:

ESV MEN'S DEVOTIONAL BIBLE



Our world presents daily distractions that can easily displace Christ as the center of a man’s heart and life. The goal of the ESV Men’s Devotional Bible is to strengthen and encourage men through the life-giving Word of God and sound devotional content aimed at nurturing godliness.
With 365 theologically rich and gospel-centered devotions drawn directly from the Bible, this all-new resource was created under the editorial oversight of Dr. Sam Storms with contributions from over fifty Christian leaders. Introductions orient men to each book of the Bible, exploring its unique contribution to a man’s walk with God. Thoughtful and instructive articles address the importance of sound doctrine, life in the local church, leadership, the heart, calling, and a host of other relevant issues for today.


SYSTEMATIC THEOLOGY: AN INTRODUCTION TO BIBLE DOCTRINE



The Christian church has a long tradition of systematic theology, that is, of studying biblical teaching on centrally important doctrines such as the Word of God, redemption, and Jesus Christ. Wayne Grudem's bestselling Systematic Theology has several distinctive features:
  • A strong emphasis on the scriptural basis for each doctrine
  • Clear writing, with technical terms kept to a minimum
  • A contemporary approach, treating subjects of special interest to the church today
  • A friendly tone, appealing to the emotions and the spirit as well as the intellect
  • Frequent application to life
  • Resources for worship within each chapter



 DISCIPLINES OF A GODLY MAN



This inspiring and best-selling book has long been speaking to the hearts of men, and its words continue to be highly relevant. Using biblical wisdom, engaging illustrations, practical suggestions for daily living, and personal study questions, Kent Hughes offers hard-hitting discussion on major areas of Christian manhood: marriage, fatherhood, friendship, purity, integrity, leadership, prayer, ministry, and more.

YOU CAN FIND THIS BOOK HERE.



4. THE EXEMPLARY HUSBAND




The official companion book for The Excellent Wife by Martha Peace is a biblical blueprint for the mandate God has given to husbands in the covenant of marriage to love their wives, even as Christ loved the church. Dr. Stuart Scott has responded chapter by chapter to the biblical teaching put forth in Martha's popular book. It is suitable for men's small group Bible studies, or for couples prayerfully seeking God's very best in marriage.

 LIES MEN BELIEVE: AND THE TRUTH THAT SETS THEM FREE




You are being hunted.
Like a seasoned angler, our enemy opens his tackle box and selects the lure most likely to attract his intended prey—usually the one you and I are least likely to consider harmful. Each lie we bite on causes us to feel pain, lose or injure relationships, and miss out on the abundant life that God wants us to have. Lies Men Believe exposes the lies that men most commonly believe, and shows you how to combat those lies with the truth.
Lies like:
  • Pleasure and Entertainment Can Truly Satisfy Me
  • If I Mean Well, That’s Good Enough
  • If I Discipline My Children, They’ll Rebel.
  • I’m Measured by How I Compare with Other Men.
Find out how lies are holding you back from freedom, joy, and intimacy with God and others. Discover the power of the truth. Because once you fully embrace the truth, nothing is ever the same.




7 MEN AND THE SECRET OF THEIR GREATNESS



In Seven MenNew York Times best-selling author Eric Metaxas presents seven exquisitely crafted short portraits of widely known—but not well understood—Christian men, each of whom uniquely showcases a commitment to live by certain virtues in the truth of the gospel.
Written in a beautiful and engaging style, Seven Men addresses what it means (or should mean) to be a man today, at a time when media and popular culture present images of masculinity that are not the picture presented in Scripture and historic civil life. What does it take to be a true exemplar as a father, brother, husband, leader, coach, counselor, change agent, and wise man? What does it mean to stand for honesty, courage, and charity, especially at times when the culture and the world run counter to those values?
Each of the seven biographies represents the life of a man who experienced the struggles and challenges to be strong in the face of forces and circumstances that would have destroyed the resolve of lesser men. Each of the seven men profiled—George Washington, William Wilberforce, Eric Liddell, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Jackie Robinson, John Paul II, and Charles Colson—call the reader to a more elevated walk and lifestyle, one that embodies the gospel in the world around us.




MANHOOD RESTORED: HOW THE GOSPEL MAKES MEN WHOLE




The earthly crisis within manhood will be there until Jesus returns, but in Christ men are pointed toward the gospel as the vision for renewal. Manhood Restored by exciting new pastoral voice Eric Mason combines theological depth with practical insights, putting men in step with a gospel-centered manhood that will enrich every facet of their lives.



ACT LIKE MEN: 40 DAYS TO BIBLICAL MANHOOD




Man up; it’s the best thing you can do for others—and yourself.
Men are so busy doing so many different things; when not working, their free time is often full of the trivial or sinful. But what society and church so desperately need are men who embrace all that God created them to be, who long to follow God without limits and meet the needs of those around them without hesitation.
To get there, we need what Pastor James MacDonald calls “radical surgery”—a deep, probing exploration and reparation of all that it means to be a man.

In his definitive, bold voice, MacDonald calls men to be watchful, firm in their faith, strong, and loving. This isn’t a call for bravado and bluster. It’s a call for men to mix tender and tough, to be humble, to follow Jesus. It is a call to be leaders, men of God, husbands who are present and caring and strong. It is straight talk—no posturing or posing or beating around the bush—inviting men to redemption and restoration in their manhood.


THOUGHTS FOR YOUNG MEN 




This is a classic book for young people who want to grow in their Christian faith. J. C. Ryle offers heartfelt advice to young men and urges them toward godliness and leadership while warning against laziness, lust, peer pressure, and other dangers--topics as relevant today as when he first wrote about them. This five chapter book makes for great youth group, small group, or father and son discussion. At the conclusion of each chapter you will find a carefully prepared study guide to assist in reading comprehension and discussion. The language has been lightly updated in this edition.

MAN OF GOD: LEADING YOUR FAMILY BY ALLOWING GOD TO LEAD YOU






What does it take to be a “real” man?
You don’t have to be perfect to be a man of God. As Dr. Charles Stanley writes, a man of God is a maturing man, a striving man, a knowledgeable man. And the first step in real manhood is spiritual rebirth.
In Man of God, Dr. Stanley asks and answers questions such as these:
What can we learn about manhood from Jesus’s example?
How does a true leader allow God to lead him?
Why is a godly man “both velvet and steel”?
What does it look like to be a provider?
What does it mean to lead with sensitivity?
Man of God will challenge and equip you to become a better leader, teacher, father, and husband. What makes a man? The answer starts here.

KINGDOM MAN 


Tony Evans believes that God wants every man to be a world-changer. He skillfully takes readers along a journey through the principles of biblical manhood, exploring how those who live, work, and minister around a kingdom man benefit from his leadership and care. Men will be challenged to fully understand their position under God as well as their position over what God has given them. Equipped with these concepts, they can actively pursue ways to maximize and develop the character qualities of biblical manhood in their lives. As Tony contends, the enemy doesn’t want you to know it, but you’re not the man you think you are. You’re a whole lot more. Starting now, you can be a kingdom man.


FAMILY DRIVEN FAITH



More teens are turning away from the faith than ever before: it is estimated that 75 to 88 percent of Christian teens walk away from Christianity by the end of their freshman year of college. Something mustbe done.

Voddie Baucham, who with his wife has overcome a multigenerational legacy of broken and dysfunctional homes, shows that God has not left us alone in raising godly children.
