Sweat, Blood, and Tears: Book Review

About The Book:

Xan Hood challenges his generation to grow into godly men.

Snips and snails and puppy dog tails might be what little boys are made of, but what makes a man? Or more specifically, what does God use to make a man?

It is true that becoming a godly man in the 21st century can be a confusing and complicated journey. Author Xan Hood invites readers along for his trip out west, both literally and figuratively. Along the way, he found that God uses three intentional elements to make a man - sweat, blood, and tears. With searing honesty, Hood shares his experiences with God and men and paint and trout and fashion and hunting. These characters help craft his story, his ongoing story of the making of a man.

About The Author:

Xan Hood is an author and the co-director of Training Ground, an experiential discipleship program for young men. He grew up in affluent Brentwood, Tennessee, but after college, like thousands of men before him, he decided to head west. Xan now lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado with his wife, Jayne.

My Review:

Xan Hood's most recent release, Blood, Sweat and Tears is a look at what make a man, a man. It is a wonderful look into the heart and mind of men and how God works in each individual man to do His work here on Earth. With sound Biblical references and an easy to read set up, Sweat, Blood and Tears needs to be read by any man in your life! It is also a great book for women to read, as it does help one understand the journey that men travel in their relationship with God. This book reminded me a lot of John Eldredge's writings, which is a very good thing!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
