Book Review: Point Man: How a Man Can Lead a Family by Steve Farrar

I came across a copy of this book from a friend who bought it at a used-books store. Point Man refers to the person in a military unit who takes the lead in any operation. One false move and the whole squad becomes casualty.

Farrar uses war analogies, much like John Eldredge(Wild at Heart, Waking the Dead), which suits very well with me. But unlike other books written by Christian authors, Farrar allows himself to use language that could be very disgusting. But as he says, sin is disgusting so why sugar-coat?

Those expecting a how-to book will be disappointed as Farrar spends about 80% of the book dealing with man's private self in light of the grand-scale war against his family. The book provides a very honest look on the ways a man could fail in his role as point man.

I recommend this book to all men who are serious in raising a Godly family.
