Mark Batterson’s mantra to “play the man” challenges men to pursue manhood and become who and what God created them to be. Our culture has failed men by not providing guidance about the roles, responsibilities and relationships in their lives today. Somewhere along the way, society lost sight of what it means to be a man. In his book, Batterson outlines seven virtues of manhood, calling men to rise up and fulfill their roles. He also provides practical ideas about how to disciple the next generation of men.
