According to Jeffrey Miller, all men face twelve hazards that make living life as a Christian male difficult. Overall, most of the problems that men face stem from these twelve issues, and learning how to face the challenge of overcoming these obstacles will help men to become the type of persons God wants them to be.

The twelve hazards Mr. Miller discusses are: Deflecting Responsibility; Manipulation; Misplaced Priorities; Individualism; Lust; Insensitivity; Absence; Partial Obedience; Unresolved Anger; Discontentment; Unteachability; and Unchecked Motives. Each chapter explores a different hazard. Using anecdotes, Bible stories, and careful analysis of both, the author presents an alternative to each issue. He provides a step by step system of ideas for how to move from a negative behavior to a positive one, and also provides a plethora of reflection and discussion questions coupled with some action steps.

Hazards of Being a Man is practical, informational, and will speak to the heart of men desiring to change their lives for the better. The book also brings familiar Bible stories to light with modern day applications, helping readers to incorporate the Bible into their everyday lives. Hazards of Being a Man is a book for every church library and men's study group. The insights are straightforward, timely, and relevant to today's Christian man.
