"Rick Johnson expresses what millions of us see and feel today when it comes to broken male culture and the absence of models and mentors to train the next generation of men. I believe that new personal and family histories await the men who see and internalize the timeless observations contained in this treasure chest of manhood."--Kenny Luck, author of Sleeping Giant, pastor of men at Saddleback Church, and founder of Every Man Ministries

"I am so grateful for friends like Rick Johnson who diligently expose me to models and pathways and illustrations of how I can launch my three boys into godly adulthood. This is my job and I cannot and I must not give it away to another!"--Brian Doyle, founder and president of Iron Sharpens Iron

"Rick Johnson expresses what millions of us see and feel today when it comes to broken male culture and the absence of models and mentors to train the next generation of men. The void is titanic. But instead of glorifying the pain and connected issues like most of the media hyenas do, A Man in the Making goes to the root--helping dads see what makes truly great men by studying the greats. I believe that new personal and family histories await the men who see and internalize the timeless observations contained in this treasure chest of manhood."
