What is the measure of a man? Is it athletic ability, strength, intelligence, or accomplishments? In Brave and Bold, Marty Machowski offers thirty-one daily devotions to encourage readers to become men whose strength comes from following Jesus and reflects him to a watching world. Each devotion calls men to grow deeper in compassion, kindness, courage, integrity, and service.
Machowski explores the truth that becoming a real man means trusting God in every area of life, including serving, taking responsibility, and confessing failure. Through personal vignettes and practical application, men will be challenged to “be doers of the word, and not hearers only” (James 1:22) and to be examples of faithfulness, selflessness, self-control, and humble dependence on the Lord.  
Useful for personal reading, one-on-one discipleship, or small group discussion, Brave and Bold encourages young men to live on a mission to honor the Lord and to make him known in every part of life.


What Others Are Saying


"My sons can tell you about the Saturday mornings when I used to take them out for breakfast and for what I called 'manhood training.' I realized it was my job to help them grow from boyhood to the responsibilities of mature manhood. How I wish I'd had Marty's book back then. I'm so glad today's dads have this invaluable tool to use with their sons."
~ Bob Lepine, Cohost, FamilyLife Today

Brave and Bold: 31 Devotions to Strengthen Men is a basic training manual for biblical manhood. Machowski offers thirty-one essential characteristics of biblical manhood in this compact, accessible devotional. Men who read this work and take on the challenges contained in it will be blessed and grow far beyond the thirty-one days it is designed to cover.”
~ Curtis Solomon, Executive Director of the Biblical Counseling Coalition; Cofounder of Solomon Soul Care

“As the father of five now-grown sons, I was called to the man-raising business. Had this book been around when my sons were younger, it would have been part of our manhood curriculum. It expresses what men are meant to be—and what I still want to be when I grow up. Brave and Bold is solid, practical, biblical, and accessible. Marty combines great illustrations with biblical insight, and then adds recommended next steps for application. Get it. Read it. Do it.”
~ Tim Shorey, Author of Respect the Image, 30/30 Hindsight, and An ABC Prayer to Jesus
