Warning No More Christian Nice Guy will go against everything you thought you knew about Jesus, and will challenge your way of thinking and acting. This is an intensely thought-provoking and meaningful book written for men who are tired of being the nice guy and getting walked all over for being too passive, fearful, and mild because 'that's the way Jesus was.'

Paul Coughlin used to be a nice guy. He acted the way the church had been pushing him to act: meek, mild, and gentle. But is that the way Jesus really was when He was on earth, and is that the way Jesus is now? Coughlin challenges this caricature and looks at three issues involving male passivity: men being shamed for acting like men, a completely unbiblical portrayal of Jesus, and childhood difficulties that translate into adult troubles. Men are challenged to move past cultural views and toward the true Biblical example of Jesus. Scriptural references, practical advice, and real-life examples make this relevant and useful.

When I received this book to review, I'll admit to being skeptical. I'm a woman, what interest would I have in No More Christian Nice Guy? However, I think that any Christian woman should dive in and read it. There is priceless information about how we, as women, are part of the problem and how we can be part of the solution. I highly recommend this fascinating book. Prepare to be challenged!
