RFP: Biblical Manhood for both Christians and non-Christians
Anyone know of a good book which describes a practical applications of biblical manhood (esp. as a husband and optionally as a father) which can be shared with even non-Christians? Something which is based on the Bible and paints not only its ideals but practical examples of both successes and failures of living the life which God wants us to live by. Post away in the comments or email me. Thanks!

Mothering Nature of Modern Church
- A fixed location: a landmark that people can turn to (sort of like a spiritual lighthouse)
- Provides various services to be helpful: child care, various ministries to those who struggles (like AA type of meetings).
- Hierarchy of leadership to be seen as accountable, responsible and maybe even respectable.
- Organized, ordered and scheduled. Even with "spirit-lead" churches, there are some scheduling and order in the meetings.

Ultimate Price for Your Child
I've looked around to see if I can find any info about donating but the best I can do is find the church address:
c/o Canon Alan Sheridan, 9 Holystone Drive, Ingleby Barwick, Stockton TS17 OPW, U.K.
The church's web site doesn't have any info, unfortunately.
Update 12/14: I emailed them last night and got a reply: they don't take online donations but they did get enough money including some help from Philippine government.

False Apostles and Teachers
For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve. [1 Cor 11:13-15]A good reminder to keep an eye out on not just others around me but on my own self! (See my post Homeschooled Christian Killers.)

Homeschooled "Christian" killers
If we want to raise godly children (men), then we need to live a godly lives. But I've also pointed out before that it's the heart change (i.e., direct contact with God Himself) is what's needed which can not take place via teachings nor even modelling by the parents but direct intervention by God Himself.
