As a man, what does God want from you? How does the biblical picture of manhood manifest itself in the 21st century? Insight for Living can help you address tough topics facing men today, from God's expectations for male leadership to overcoming sexual temptation and sin. Let us equip you with tools to transform your imperfect image of manhood to the image of the perfect Man, Jesus Christ.

To Daniel, it was all future. To us, most of it is history—a history worth studying to prepare us for the future.
John singles out three men for observation and instruction. Gaius, Diotrephes, and Demetrius, while actual personalities in the early church, represent three types in the church today. We’ll find much that is practical for our churches as we examine these 15 verses together.
