Masculinity is

Being a strong man is still a quality to be celebrated, even within the chaos of a shifting society. In Strong Men Dangerous Times, Jim Ramos aims to accomplish one task—to help you to understand manhood.

This blue-collar, bare-knuckle guide boldly defines what a strong man is and dispels all misconceptions about what a man is not. Let’s stop trying to squeeze our men into boxes God never intended.

There is still honor in manhood, by living a life of integrity, caring, passion, courage and strength. These are the five essentials every man must possess to change his world. Our churches, our wives, our kids, our communities and our world desperately need strong men.

Now is the time to take your place as a man among men. Now is the time to prepare strong men for dangerous times.


Start your quest to become a man who can carry the heavy weight of masculinity to a world that desperately needs men to step up. 

Order Strong Men Dangerous Times:

“There are few men in the world today fighting for the heart of a man like Jim Ramos. This book is just another tribute to his straightforward approach that challenges men to join him in redeeming manhood from the clutches of a culture of passivity and envisions a new man that defines masculinity through the ultimate man, Jesus Christ.

If you want to discover masculinity and what it means to be a man using a single tool to pass on timeless principles, then you will buy Strong Men Dangerous Times for yourself and another for a man you want to see win.”
