Steve Farrar's new book is terrific. This book will bring encouragement to any man out there - regardless of age. His use of the Psalms in this book and how they apply to your daily walk are true to the Word, insightful, and absolutely 100% Farrar - if you liked Point Man (and I did) you will love this book.
Ecellent. Steve Farrar is a must read for every Christian man. I am convinced he conveys ideals and practical applications pertaining to purity, character and integrity in down to Earth terms and personability
We attended the Fall couples retreat at the Hume Lake Christian Camp in Sequoia Nat'l Park last month. Steve Farrar was our speaker. We were not familiar with Steve's work. Steve announced his weekend topic as simply Psalms 23 ... line by line ... for three days. First note to self ... this could get tedious.A wonderful surprise ... it was dynamite! Steve grabs your attention with a treble hook. These rote verses came alive, brilliantly decrypted and positioned in the relatable context. The 6 verses, in Steve's macro/microscopic delivery brought Psalms 23 into the 21st century ... all brand spankin' new.We wanted more. I've now read "Gettin' There". Each chapter is a WOW of cogitative discovery. There's so much more to Psalms than I had been equipped to absorb before reading "Gettin' There".Steve's a big man, an impossing orator, a critical thinker of Gospel origins and here and now evangelistic thought. I was able to see his style and delivery in every word of "Gettin' There". Picture a large, animated, humble, X-ray eyed Puritan vanguard transported to 2005 to share the continuity of Biblical insight.Read this book!
Though this book covers many topics and Psalms, chapters 9 and 10 (tape 4 in audio) are an incredible fresh look at Psalm 23. Some history and descriptive context explain phrases that are well known, but easily glossed over. Though he is a popular men's author, this section is applicable to everyone - as often as that passage is quoted, it's nice to understand more fully the love and compassion the shepherd has for us and our need for him.
I found this enjoyable and with excellent insights in thoughts in many places. A little bit American cheesy in some parts if you are from outside the US. Not what i quite expected but overall very good book and good points to take on my walk with the Lord. Also highly recommend Tempered Steel by Farrar
This is a fantastic book for any man, but especially a man who desires to please God with his life. It is basically a devotional from the book of Psalms which uses the word "path" many times. The author uses a western theme and relates this to be like a "trail" that you take. He has great stories to illustrate the choices of trails that have been taken by those who have gone before us, good and bad. It is a must read for young men just graduating, men in their prime, and even older men who would like to salvage what is left. I just wish it was still in print and easier to obtain a copy.
My husband asked me to order this book for him because the men of our church were doing it as a small group study. My husband is very down to earth and doesn't "waste a lot of time reading". He is really enjoying this book and hasn't put it down! He likes the word pictures the author uses about being on the trail. He said that he can relate to that.
This book is one of the most down to earth reflections on Psalms and how they deal with our lives as men. Steve Farraris one of the best writers of Christian literature today because of his approach to the scriptures and how they relate to men. I have read several of his books and each and every one is as enlightening as the first. Thank you Steve!
