Pastoring Men
What Works, What Doesn’t, and Why It Matters Now More than Ever

No man fails on purpose, but most men are under a lot of pressure. When a man fails it sets powerful forces of bondage and brokenness in motion. It can take several generations to break the cycle.

As America staggers beneath the load of a 100 major problems like divorce, fatherlessness, poverty, pornography, adultery, abortion, disrespect for authority, ethical failures, and truancy—where have the men gone? What has happened to our men?

At the root of virtually every problem is the failure of a man, ironically a man who got up this morning wishing that his life would make a difference. A man for whom Christ died.

This is an excerpt from the Moody Published book Pastoring Men by Patrick Morley. For more information on this book and how to disciple men, please visit
