No More Excuses: Be the Man God Made You to Be Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
|New from||Used from|
Sometimes hard circumstances in life make it difficult for us to be all that God wants us to be. But Tony Evans urges men to stop looking at these things as excuses and instead see them as challenges and opportunities for success.
Looking at men of God throughout the Bible such as Moses, Joseph, and David, Evans challenges men to put down our excuses, stop compromising, and fight to be men of commitment and character. Despite setbacks, failures, and pressures, we can still find purpose, meaning, and direction in life and be the men God calls us to be.

I could do without the use of "homey" and other slang words when referencing biblical greats, but I guess that's where Tony may be trying to reach a certain audience.
The book is pretty spot on in describing that when men don't do the right, biblical, or even lawful thing, they make excuses that are inexcusable. There may be pathetic reasons we choose to blame for not doing what we are called to do, but reasons are not excuses. If you miss your kid's ballgame that you promised to be at, and you tell him "Sorry, I had more work to get done than I thought" that's a reason that doesn't fly. Simple fact is, you weren't there when you said you would be. Period.
I was surprised that early in the book Tony addresses black men by immediately and bluntly killing the notion that slavery is any excuse these many years later for still calling on it as an excuse.
I always appreciate Tony's straight forward manner of writing. Many scriptures are used to back up what he is saying.
I plan to use this book as an "ice breaker" for a movement at our own church to help men see that their biblical role as a man does not allow for making excuses when they fail. Buck up up and admit you failed. Get up, wipe it off, and get back to doing what you're supposed to do.
It is not easy to be a Christian in today's society. This book will help those trying to live a faithful, holy, and honorable life.

I like the fact that it is in essence Character studies of Bible heroes and how they responded to situations and issues like integrity, purity etc.
It is easy reading, but sometimes with a book like 'No More Excuses' you really don't want easy reading!
