Men are in crisis. From every direction, they
are presented with a deformed masculinity. One that sees women as conquests
rather than partners. One that values success at work over success at home. One
that hinders true and open friendships with other men who hold them up and hold
them accountable. One that presents them as either the bumbling, disconnected
dad in sitcoms or the predator in movies and video games (and the news). Men
were made for more than this. It’s time to rekindle the fire living inside of
them and awaken them to the value of valiant, righteous manhood.
Through inspiring stories and hard-hitting biblical truths, Stephen Mansfield uncovers the seven fires that ought to burn in a man’s soul–the fires of destiny, heritage, friendship, love, battle, legacy, and God. This raw guide to the restoration of a noble, honorable manhood will challenge men of every generation to live well, invest in others, and leave a powerful legacy.

The book was a source for Oliver Stone’s award-winning film “W.” Mansfield’s “The Faith of Barack Obama” was another international bestseller. He has written celebrated biographies of Booker T.

Stephen’s humorous but fiery “Mansfield’s Book of Manly Men” has inspired men’s events in the US and abroad. His more recent “The Miracle of the Kurds” has been selected as “Book of the Year” by Rudaw, the leading Kurdish news service. As a result of this book, Mansfield has become a respected voice in support of the Kurds against the evils of ISIS in the Middle East.
