Book Review: Tender Warrior

Tender Warrior: Every Man's Purpose, Every Woman's Dream, Every Child's Hope
I grew up the oldest of four daughters, with no brothers. Five years into marriage with my best friend and husband, I know I have only gotten a taste of how men and women are created so different. We are definitely wonderfully and uniquely made! God has blessed us with an adorable son, who is now two years old. As we have watched him grow and develop, I know I have so much to learn about parenting a little boy who is day by day moving towards manhood!

Stu Weber's book "Tender Warrior: Every Man's Purpose, Every Woman's Dream, Every Child's Hope" looked interesting, and I wondered what kind of insights I might gain into raising my little man into one day being a strong, tender warrior. This book has sat on my shelf for months because of the busyness of life, but I have gotten to skim different chapters, and realized it is really written more towards men. My husband has read the book before and said it was really good. I finally knew I couldn't progress through the book because I have other things claiming my time. But what I read is really good. I have recognized in so many ways the battle that goes on in our culture for men to try and be masculine, strong, compassionate, etc... The balance is hard to find. And who can young men look up to as they try to figure this out? Not all young men have positive older role models to follow.

So this book could help fill that thirst for men as their try to seek God and live as men of integrity in this world. If you're a man (and I'm not), this might be a book you should check out. Stu Weber really lays out well that a "tender warrior" can impact his workplace, home, marriage, children, etc...
