Christian Men's Deepest Secrets Exposed

Confessions of a "Good" Christian Guy
It's not hard to define what a "good Christian guy" is, right? They are the men who seem to have it all. Good job - check. Loving wife and family - check. Solid relationship with God - check.

But most people would be shocked to learn that lust, greed, infidelity, substance abuse, pride, and materialism also can have deep roots in the lives of many Christian men.

Conducting interviews on the topic of the "Secret Sins of Professing Christians" is author TOM DAVIS, who shares with your audience that life's most challenging issues are not saved just for the faith-less. Even "good Christian guys" grapple with these difficulties on a daily basis.

Tom Davis is a self-described "good Christian guy." But he is also is a sinner. He has wrestled with difficult issues, and admits that since coming to Christ, he has snorted cocaine, been sexually promiscuous, and spent time behind bars.

Tom's life is by no means perfect. He is a Christian, but he is also fallen. In his new book, Confessions of a Good Christian Guy, The Secrets Men Keep and the Grace that Saves Them, Davis explores the darkest corners of the lives of men like him - men who are outwardly upstanding citizens, church leaders, and pillars of their communities. His new book is not a lurid expose, but instead is an honest, thoughtful exploration of the damaging secrets that often lurk behind the perfect fa├žade that some Christian men have so carefully constructed.

Tom shares with your audience that some Christian men may seem fine on the surface but on the inside often there are cracks in the veneer, as men - even Christian men - often repeat destructive behaviors and succumb to temptations. Tom explains that sometimes inviting Christ into one's heart does not immediately mark the end of the brokenness and pain that many men feel. Davis delves into numerous difficult topics, in chapters including:

1. "I've got a dirty mind": The Never-Ending Struggle of Sexual Sins
2. "I'm a self- made man": The Surprising Pervasiveness of Pride
3. "I want more stuff": The Hollow Promise of Materialism
4. "I love booze": The Destructive Trap of Substance Abuse
5. "I want to give up": The Weary Grind of Long-Term Discouragement
6. "I'm so ticked off": The Harmful Reality of Anger and Abuse

Davis gives Biblical examples of men who dealt with similar issues, like King David, Samson, and Nebuchadnezzar. He encourages readers to put themselves in God's hands and wrap themselves in the protection of His grace and forgiveness.

While Tom's topic is primarily for men, Tammy Maltby, (author of Confessions of a Good Christian Girl) offers a brief reflection at the end of each chapter of Tom's book for women who are affected by these sinning Christian men.
