Item Description...
Overview
With no-holds-barred honesty and poignant storytelling, Nate Larkin introduces a model of community and friendship that is reinvigorating men's ministry across the country, a model he calls The Samson Society. Too many men see the biblical hero Samson as their model for manhood--a rugged individualist of the highest order. Yet, Samson's solitary successes were eventually overcome by moral weaknesses. Larkin, through the story of his own past and the stories of those in The Samson Society, offers a radical, refreshing alternative.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Authentic, Honest and Much Needed  Feb 27, 2007
Thank you Mr. Larkin for your willingness to share so much of your life's struggle. This book offers liberating truths that are most feared by our old Adversary! By removing the veil of secrecy, we truly can move toward greater freedom in Christ. The writing style is masterfully elegant and ever-intriguing, and as is promised on the cover it's never boring. Only someone who has walked down such a difficult path--and has experienced the grace daily offered to us--can speak with such honesty and joy at the same time. I recommend this book to anyone who has ever heard this lie in their mind: keep your mouth shut, this sin is too big!
 
Hard to Believe  Feb 11, 2007
I can't say that I have ever read of a modern man's confessions -and renewal- through such an interesting process, that is, Christian men regularly sharing intimate details of their lives with each other, and doing so without a leader. "Group counselling" always has a trained leader. Larkin's group is simply a group. And everything is held in true confidence. I am now participating in one of these groups, and it is having a quiet but profound impact on my life. The book reveals only the tip of the iceberg.
 
Nate Larkin's story helps men connect, grow, and thrive.  Feb 8, 2007
(Note: this review is based on the audio version of this book.) The very idea of cracking open your life in the presence of a group of men - most of whom may be total strangers - is counterintuitive to say the least. In our post-modern American culture we Christian men still think that the rugged individualistic lifestyle we've been taught is going to help us find peace. A casual glance at the shell-shocked men sitting dazed in most church congregations proves otherwise. Having come to know Nate Larkin personally and attended Samson Society meetings for just over a year, I can attest that the methods he proposes here do in fact work.

Coming together, admitting our need for true accountable brotherhood (and not the artificial accountability that so often fails in most mens' groups), sharing our struggles and victories, and simply being authentic together, we are finally doing what we've been trying to do all our Christian lives - becoming more like Christ. There's something marvelously powerful in exposing your weaknesses within the safety of a Samson group that actually gives you strength. Learning that another brother is going through the same things as you disproves the all-too frequent lie that you are alone and outcast. Forming real and lasting friendships based on a common thread of humility and genuine care helps us all rise above the surface-level Christianity of today and gets us back to the heart of the gospel we all knew was still available to us.

I commend Nate on this stark, funny, sobering, powerful work.
 
Read It In 24 hours... and I have 6 kids!  Feb 7, 2007
As a Christian leader I teach often on community and the importance of fellowship. The truth is that the real me is more isolated than not. The answer found in this book is the simplicity and power of brotherhood. The pursuit of honest relationships is often messy and complicated. This book paints a compelling picture of real friendship based in truth that makes brotherhood worth the effort. Friendship may be the Pirate Monk's greatest treasure! More valuable than gold... (John 15:12-15)
 
Life changing!  Feb 6, 2007
I believe this book represents the "front-line" battle most men, especially in our culture, face today. Perhaps the battle is even more intense in Christian ministry, because we often connect our livelihood to upholding a shiny image. But that is all it is ... an image. A golden calf of our time. I believe this book will inspire a new level of honesty and authenticity in our culture. God is moving the hearts of men toward a new freedom that comes through a community of brothers. Brothers who are flawed and weak, but together become a force to be reckoned with!
