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.

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. Fast-paced, filled with relevant biblical and contemporary stories of godly men like David, Nehemiah, George Foreman and Tim Tebow, “Take It Back” empowers men to be who God created them to be and to impact the culture that is in desperate need of their influence. 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.

Dr. Tim Clinton, EdD, LPC, LMFT, is president of AACC, the largest and most diverse Christian counseling association in the world. Clinton also serves as the executive director of the James Dobson Family Institute and recurring cohost of Dr. James Dobson’s “Family Talk,” heard on nearly 1,300 radio outlets daily. Licensed as a professional counselor and as a marriage and family therapist, Clinton is recognized as a world leader in mental health and relationship issues and has authored or edited nearly 30 books. Clinton and his wife, Julie, have two children.

Max Davis is the author of over 30 books that have been featured in USA Today, Publisher’s Weekly, Bible Gateway and on the “Today” show and “The 700 Club.” He holds degrees in journalism and biblical studies. In addition to his own works, he’s done a variety of collaboration projects with highly notable leaders.

“Take It Back” will be released on May 5 by Charisma House, which publishes books that challenge, encourage, teach and equip Christians.
