A serious Christian life is calling you, and it’s not that complicated. It means getting hungry for God, giving up shallow priorities, and finding joy in simple service to others. In other words, getting real. Award-winning columnist Derek Maul understands men — the work pressures, the family tensions etc.
Get Real by Derek Maul
Finally, a book for men’s spiritual development that actually starts with Jesus. Not lightly baptized Jungian archetypes. Not secular stereotypes that seek to present Jesus as a “man’s man.” This is good stuff.

Author of The Life You’ve Always Wanted
What exactly does it mean to be a Christian in today’s world? Particularly, what does it mean to be a Christian man in 21st-century American culture?
Derek Maul, an award-winning columnist and men’s group leader, explores these questions in Get Real. The emerging 21st-century Christian man is a spiritual adventurer who’s unafraid to find strength in community with others, including other men. This man rejects the phony values of societyùsuch as the incessant desire for power, youth, money, cars, gadgetsùand finds courage in Jesus’ invitation: “Follow me.”
Maul delivers straight talk to men about faith, family, and desire for God in bite-size sections. He draws on his own experiences, including stories from his weekly men’s group called The Men’s Room.
Every man can have a deeper spiritual life. Find out how to follow Jesus and leave a legacy of faith.
