Description : Every man has secrets. Whether they are sinful or simply not in your best interest. . . whether you wall them off or stuff them down deep, you are not alone. But as author Stephen Arterburn warns, secrets are also the most dangerous force within a man, so finding a way to deal with the unspoken fears and questions that threaten to undo you is among your most important tasks. In this book, the author of the million-selling Every Man's Battle series courageously exposes what nearly 4,000 men like you said they think, feel and question – about themselves, their work, their marriage and family, their finances, and their faith – but don't dare to talk about. He also affirms again and again that the strength it takes to keep your secrets safe can be redirected to make a better life and a stronger you. Throughout these pages, Arterburn not only fleshes out each of twenty-five secrets but gives perspective on where those secrets come from, why they feel so important, and how to respond to them . . . to make life, love, work, and leadership easier for you and for everyone who loves you.
