Michael Thompson, author and director of Zoweh, wrote The Heart of a Warrior to address the tragic reality that many men face: so many lose heart somewhere along the way.
Naiveté and ignorance keep many men running in circles, while misinformation and poor training keep many more in bondage. Men are wounded, frustrated, angry, and they are often crushed under the weight of criticism and impossible expectations. And yet, men have a glorious and significant role to play in the advancement of God’s kingdom. The attempted solution of the last few decades has been to “educate” men. Don’t do this, do more of that, memorize this list of rules. The old strategy isn’t working anymore. We’ve been setting men up for failure rather than helping them live free. It’s time we return to the Ancient One.
We want to invite men to a place of training and orientation that will equip them with both a settled heart and a fierce courage. A man cannot enter the battle without knowing he is a Beloved Son. After all, that is what the battle is all about!
Our YouVersion reading plans kick-start this journey for men. We want to further encourage and equip men towards becoming fully alive in Christ through a deeper understanding of the Gospel, the message of our book, and the efforts of our ministry.
Men have a glorious and significant role in God’s Larger Story. They also are the target of a special warfare aimed continually and ruthlessly at the center of their being… their masculine hearts. Naivety and ignorance keep many men running in circles while misinformation and poor training keep many more in bondage. Men are wounded, frustrated, angry and being crushed under the weight of criticism and expectations.
The attempted solutions of recent years is education; tell men what they are doing wrong and give them a list to memorize. This strategy isn’t working and its time we fall back to an Ancient One. What if we are setting men up for failure rather than helping them be free? Join author and guide, Michael Thompson, as he invites men to a place of training and orientation that will ensure both a settled heart and a fierce courage. A man cannot enter this battle without knowing he is a Beloved Son for after all, that is what the battle is all about!
"Just finished The Heart of a Warrior. I cried. It is as important as Wild at Heart was to my world. It is what I deeply believe and how I want to be known."
