Life is a journey of risk and revelation, but most young men have never been invited to step out of their comfort zones to discover who they are, what they should pursue, and who they can become. This book affirms young men, empowering them to pursue manhood from a biblical perspective. Filled with gripping true stories and insights, this invitation to the journey gives clear vision and direction in vital areas such as performance, temptations, relationships, idols, boredom, and more. As young men courageously share and give of their lives, they will feel more free and more alive than they ever could have imagined.
