About the Book

This book is written under the impression that God is raising up an army of men to be Spiritual Warriors. These men do not need a stage or a position. They may be pipe-fitters or professionals; they may landscapers or lawyers. They are being drawn by the Holy Spirit to engage personally and collectively. As Men of Fire who make a difference, they are defined by what they do. This book asserts that men need to recapture their passions for “building, breaking, providing and protecting” in their homes, churches, and community.

Men are ready to gather at fires as they define themselves through stories. Retelling life experiences at campfires, BBQ pits, and bonfires expose a man’s passions and announce readiness to address life as Men of Fire. Stories need a safe place to surface the passions that have been surrendered to television warriors and superheroes consigning themselves as the “keeper of the remote.” From emerging young men sitting at the feet of fathers and spiritual warriors, to men who have been told to sit down and be quiet, God is raising up Men of Fire today to face God’s challenges as spiritual warriors that face life with courage and commitment.
