6 Rules Every Man Must Break
If you’re into ‘nice’ religious books, don’t read this one. But if you want to be challenged, like to laugh, and want to know what God desires from real men, this is your book.”
– Steve Brown, author and host of Key Life nationally-syndicated radio program
By breaking six specific rules you can throw off the shackles of other people’s expectations and pursue a more authentic and liberating faith. If you’ll refuse to be handcuffed by rules that aren’t God given you can:
– Strengthen your friendship with God
– Fight the battles Jesus fought
– Experience the true purpose of your life
– Tap into God’s power
– Get mad when you should
– Boldly pursue your God given dream
At the event men are encouraged to get into an eight-week follow-up study in which they use 6 Rules Every Man Must Break and the discussion questions at the end of each chapter. Ultimately, long-term life change occurs in small groups. I’ve found that over 70% of the men attending an event, who aren’t currently in a group, sign up for one of the studies.
The idea is for a 6 Rules Event to create momentum which is then captured by the eight-week follow-up studies and maintained by those groups that continue on after the eight weeks.
Some Rules Are Meant to Be Broken
What if by breaking six specific rules, you and the men you know could throw off the shackles of other people’s expectations and pursue a more authentic and liberating faith. In this seminar Bill has a message for men with the courage to break those rules—the same ones Jesus broke.
