In Men to Men, sixteen black scholars and professionals share personal insights into what it takes to succeed in all avenues of manhood, from family to faith to vocation. Whether you're a pastor, educator, counselor, lay leader, or simply someone concerned with how to apply your faith to turn life's hurdles into opportunities, Men to Men gives you proven perspectives that can spark success and growth in your own and others' lives. Drawing on the expertise and wisdom of their chosen fields, men such as Dr. Lloyd Blue, Dr. Hank Allen, and Dr. Lee June share practical, man-to-man advice on topics of vital interest, including: - How African-American Males Can Build Powerful Families - Developing and Maintaining a Commitment to Marriage - An Action Plan for Restoring African-American Men, Families, and Communities - Black, Biblical, and Afrocentric - Risk and Failure as Preludes to Achievement - Avoiding the Criminal Justice System - The Importance of Moral Character.
