THE REAL WIN by pastor Matt Carter and NFL quarterback Colt McCoy is a call for men to be leaders in the areas of their lives where it matters most. Both men share some personal struggles as well as practical ways they've pursued in trying to be the men that God has called them to be. The authors establish what genuine success looks like for a man from a biblical perspective after looking at some of the common goals that men try to find their gratification from.
Many people will probably pick up this book because of Colt McCoy. I've never been a big football fan, but I have been listening to Matt Carter on podcast for several years. However, it was interesting to see the struggles that McCoy deals with and see the pursuit of biblical manhood from that perspective.
This book is a serious challenge to men. I wish that many of the things communicated in the book were things that I didn't need to hear because I was already doing them. That just wasn't the case. I appreciated the call the authors present for men to lead their families well and to love their wives first. This is a great book for men, and its message is one that needs to be pursued by all men.
