About Point Man, Revised and Updated

The bestselling guide for Christian men who want to lead their families well is now revised and updated to help fathers and husbands navigate the complexities of today’s challenges.
 
“Jam-packed with biblical direction and leadership strategies, this battle guide will equip you to lead your family to victory.”—Dr. Tony Evans, president of the Urban Alternative and senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship

Most men want to be strong spiritual leaders of their families. They just don’t know how because they’ve never seen it modeled.

That’s why Steve Farrar wrote Point Man thirty years ago. With more than half a million copies sold, it’s the go-to resource for how to faithfully lead and love your family, walk boldly through challenging seasons of marriage and parenting, stand firm against personal temptation, and forge a faith that shines bright.
 
Yet the war on the family has only intensified since this trusted guide first came out. Whether through entertainment, social media, or legislation, our world seems determined to undermine the traditional family—which means faithful spiritual leadership is needed more than ever.
 
This revised and updated edition will equip you to confidently navigate the cultural and societal forces affecting your family, such as:
 
• shifting views of masculinity and femininity
• the declining influence of church and faith
• fractured perspectives on morality
 
Packed with powerful inspiration, clear biblical direction, and contemporary examples, Point Man provides the strategies you need to lead your family safely through today’s battles and on to victory.

Praise

“Steve Farrar is a once-in-a-generation figure. His longevity as a truth-telling voice in a lie-believing world makes him uniquely trustworthy. Point Man is his signature work. Compressed on every page of this book you will find a hopeful, straight-shooting, tell-it-like-it-is, no double-talk prescription for men who are tired of reading spiritual pabulum. Steve will challenge and inspire you with the fervor of a prophet, the wisdom of a reformer, and the passion of someone who really cares.”—Patrick Morley, bestselling author, Bible teacher, and founder of Man in the Mirror

Point Man is one of the most valuable books you will ever read. It had a huge impact on me decades ago and continues to today. Steve Farrar is a great, no-nonsense Bible teacher for whom I have the highest respect.”—Ken Harrison, chairman of Promise Keepers and CEO of WaterStone

Point Man has rightly risen to the status of a classic. Like Caleb before him, Steve Farrar’s strength, seasoned by decades of spiritual battle, is more acute and battle ready than ever before. The appendix is worth the price of the book. And chapter 5 will blow your mind—in a good way! Steve was a straight shooter back when. Still is. Fearless. Full of truth. Walks the talk. So strap in, rework your biblical masculine energy with Steve, and take the point.”—Stu Weber, pastor and author
