Experts and Influencers Give Words of Praise for Tim Clinton’s New Book, ‘Take It Back’

Endorsers Say ‘Take It Back,’ Debuting This Spring, Is a ‘Must-Read’ ‘Manifesto for Men,’ a ‘Strong Word of Encouragement’ and ‘Incredible’

February 19, 2020

LYNCHBURG, VA.—Has masculinity been redefined as something it was never meant to be?

Yes, say authors Dr. Tim Clinton and Max Davis in their forthcoming book, Take It Back: Reclaiming Biblical Manhood for the Sake of Marriage, Family, and Culture.In fact, the culture is determined to do just that.

But Clinton says that men do matter. They can be difference-makers in their circles of influence and have a positive impact on the culture and their families.

“In a culture that wants to keep men down, men need to know who they are, that God created them fully-masculine and that their ultimate source of strength comes from Him,” Clinton writes in “Take It Back.” “It’s a cry that echoes deep in the soul and from all ends of our society, and particularly from the women who love their fathers, husbands, brothers and sons. Most women want their men to be honored and to stand up and be men. Men have faltered and lost influence and territory. The good news is that for many who struggle, there is often a daily yearning to make it right. The reality is, masculinity is not and never was ‘toxic.’ Right now, more than ever, God is calling men to be men.”

Several experts, cultural leaders and influencers are already providing positive feedback about “Take It Back,” set for release by Charisma House this spring.

He has spent a lifetime working with men who are thinking about giving up the battle—or who have already thrown in the towel. In this book, Tim writes a strong word of encouragement for men everywhere to ‘Take it Back’—the ‘it’ being their God-given manhood. He argues that it’s not a curse to be a man, no matter what the culture currently shouts. Read this book and rediscover your spiritual testosterone, for muscles built of Christian courage, confidence and determination.”—Jerry Falwell Jr., lawyer and president of Liberty University

I am confident that Dr. Clinton and Max Davis’ new book, titled ‘Take It Back: Reclaiming Biblical Manhood for the Sake of Marriage, Family, and Culture,’ will help so many at this critical time in our nation’s history.

In “Take It Back,” Clinton, president of the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC), challenges readers to reject culture’s redefinition and seek biblical examples of true manhood.

Study and discussion questions at the end of each chapter make “Take It Back” a perfect resource for men’s Bible studies and small groups.
