Eric Metaxas & Doug Giles On Making Young Christian Males Rowdy Biblical Men

Find out why the subhead of Doug's book caught Eric's attention

You never know whose sacred cows will get BBQ’d when Eric & Doug get together as we run the gamut from the irreverent and hilarious to the profound and theological. This week took dead aim at tepid Christians flying the banner of a little-j Jesus.

What quality of soldiers do you think a boot camp would churn out if the Sgt whose job it was to forge men out of boys was about 250 pounds overweight and needed to sit for a rest whenever he steps up onto a curb? Is this the kind of leader you could trust to produce a serious fighting force?

If we wouldn’t trust something as mundane as our MILITARY leadership to be led by that kind of chucklehead, why do we neglect our SPIRITUAL leadership when the stakes are far higher than a lost skirmish, risking the eternal souls of men and women?

We’ve got a perspective problem… and this interview tracks that perspective problem to it’s source. Somewhere along the way we’ve got our ideas about the relative strength of God and His kingdom, and the defeated enemy whose demise the Church has been sent to enforce turned completely on their heads.

If you’ve fallen into the all-too-popular woe-is-me trap in thinking that Christians have to white-knuckle their time on Earth until Christ rescues us from a big, bad Devil, this show will help set you straight.

And here’s the book that inspired the conversation.

Lionhearted: Making Young Christian Males Rowdy Biblical Men

Dear young Christian male, this book you’re about to read is meant to challenge you to your very core. Its intent is not to make you feel warm and fuzzy. Some of the chapters will upset you greatly, especially if you’re a dandy who was raised with kid gloves by a helicopter mommy.

That said, in addition to the holy introspection contained herein, this book will also shoot adrenaline into your soul. It’ll push you to be a Godly risk taker and earth shaker. A veritable Rebel With A Cause just like the Captain of Our Salvation, the Lord Jesus Christ.

If you want a feel-good book that tickles your ears and morphs you into a little Christian popinjay, this tome ain’t for you. You should put this book down and walk away from it immediately. However, if, young man, if … your motto is to give God your utmost for His highest, and you wanna live a life worthy of Christ’s death, then this book will be grist for your mill.
