New Book Calls On Men To "Stand To"

Sunday, April 25, 2021

Shawn Brower returns to the publishing scene with the release of “Stand To: Finding Masculine Courage in a Stand Down World” (published by WestBow Press). In this biblically grounded book, the author challenges men to pursue godly masculine courage, to strengthen their courage, solidify their identities, and clarify their life purpose.

“While courage is not gender specific, we see more and more men stepping down and not stepping up and ‘standing to’ in the face of challenges and obstacles,” said Dr. Brower. “The need for godly masculine courage around us is real, the call is necessary, and response is critical.”

Review for “Stand To: Finding Masculine Courage in a Stand Down World”:

“Stand To: Finding Masculine Courage in a Stand Down World” is designed to remind men to know that every moment is critical and his engagement in life and the specific relationships around him are a necessity. It shares from God’s Word men’s striking resemblance to the “Warrior King” who has also
experienced intense suffering from missional living. Since men are hardwired for action and they learn
best by doing, this book invites men to accept personal courage challenges and to live intentional,
creed-driven lives in the presence of God (Coram-Deo), under his authority and for his glory.
With the publication of “Stand To: Finding Masculine Courage in a Stand Down World,” Dr. Brower hopes to address unrealistic and stereotypical portrayal of men in the media and culture. It is the  author’s hope that in a cancel culture world, men would not step down or cancel themselves out, but instead men would be invigorated, motivated, and inspired to be men who courageously “STAND TO” and resemble the “Warrior King” Jesus in how they think of themselves and courageously live their lives before God and others.

Dr. Brower and his wife reside in Birmingham where he serves as the head of upper school and the varsity men’s soccer coach at Briarwood Christian School. He has his doctorate degree in educational leadership and has also earned five state championships and three national Coach of the Year awards. Dr. Brower has published “We Became Men: The Journey into Manhood” and  “The Huddle: Becoming a Champion for Life.” He and his wife are blessed with three sons: Joshua (23), Josiah (19) and Jakob (17).

Please Stop Calling Us “Latinx”

This is based on a 2020 Pew Research poll of about 3,000 American Latinos. Those who want for “Latinx” to become the default say it’s preferable because it’s ... (click for more)
