Hazards of Being a Man: Overcoming 12 Challenges All Men Face
When the opportunity comes to learn from someone else’s mistake instead of making your own, take it! Men have been struggling with the same problems since biblical times. From well-known men like Adam and Samson to more obscure men like Achan and Elkanah, the Bible is filled with stories of men facing the hazards that men still face today. Hazards of Being a Man tackles twelve hazards all men face and paints a compelling picture of how to live as a better man.
Reach for almost any commentary or other Bible study text and sooner or later (probably sooner!) you’re bound to stumble over a word you don’t know. Unfortunately, the dictionary doesn’t shed much light on terms such as agraphon, deutero-Isaiah, pretribulationism, synonymous parallelism, Transjordan, or zugoth. Even words you are able to look up can have specific nuances and applications in biblical and theological study. What you need is a study book to help you understand the study books. You need the Zondervan Dictionary of Bible and Theology Words.
