Your "reinforcements" in the battle of the mind
Ever feel like you're not in control of your thoughts? Your actions? Like you're trapped in compulsions and behaviors that are destroying you from within? Things like
In Battles Men Face, Dr. Jantz exposes the temptations that can entrap good men and gives practical steps to take to overcome unhealthy patterns. He shows you how to accept who you are (and who you're not), say no, focus and build on the positive, and, perhaps most difficult, ask for and accept help.

Top Customer Reviews
This book was provided for free by Graf-Martin Communications and Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group, in exchange for an honest review.
He not only does an excellent job of summing up the major issues men face, he also seeks to deal with why these issues are facing men, and how they can take steps to health. I very much appreciate that he (from my perspective) accomplishes this without making the sins of the flesh attractive.
The book is particularly helpful because of the reality that men often are not willing to go for help, and this book will help them to take the first steps towards health. Jantz is honest, which is helpful, and he seeks to show with stories and principles how to grow through these to help. His examples are very helpful.
I wish there was more Scripture and hope in God's help, which would have made this book more effective. As a first step, I think this book is very helpful, and useful especially for those unwilling to go for personal help. I hope that this will bring the first steps of health to those wanting to grow through some of these broken areas.
I loved the practical questions that bring a deeper authenticity to the reader!

This is a book that essentially touches all men, because there is something in this book that each man struggles with, and if they do not struggle with it then they could teach this to another man around them to make them better.
I hope that the author thinks of developing a course based on this material that can be used for study groups and/or self study.. He has done an excellent job on various topics that men would rather ignore. Great job.
