About the Book

A boy doesn’t automatically become a man at age 18. What differentiates a man from a boy is the way he lives.

A BOY...

  • lives day to day
  • wants to be MVP
  • plays
  • wants the reassurance of the crowd
  • is a predator

A MAN...

  • has a vision for his life
  • is a team player
  • works
  • has the courage to take a minority position
  • is a protector

These are the five marks of a man—and real men aggressively pursue them on a daily basis.

“For a generation that has not had great role models of what godly men look like, Brian’s clarion call to live out the five marks of biblical manhood inspires and challenges men to be all God intended so that future generations have men worth following.”

“Brian’s insights into the marks of a man are spot on. The marks are simple, easy to remember, and important, and we need to incorporate them into our lives so that we can be the men God intended us to be.”

“Contrary to what lots of folks seem to think, adolescence doesn’t turn a boy into a man. A real man is far more than a boy with a few years under his belt. Thankfully, in this era of great confusion over what it actually means to be a full-fledged man, Brian Tome has written a helpful, timely, and at times hilarious book. I highly recommend it. You’ll find it well worth your time.”
