The Trailhead: Protecting Integrity

In The Trailhead, the first study guide of the 5-book Man Card Series, Jim Ramos walks your team of men through the first aspect of defining manhood: protecting integrity.

"Without integrity, a man won't get far in his journey to manhood. Integrity is foundational to becoming a man. Without it, he will be viewed as no more than a foolish child. Without it, he will survive as a male, never thriving as a man.

If you're a young man reading this book, be warned. If you lack integrity, you lack everything. You'll never become the man God designed you to be. Integrity is the trailhead on the journey towards manhood." 

Each quick, concise lesson gets you thinking and ties to a corresponding online video intro by Jim, perfect for starting off each team meeting. In this study guide, Jim is your trail guide, teaching you how to pack your life with impeccable integrity.

The Climb: Fighting Apathy

In The Climb, the second study guide of the 5-book Man Card Series, Jim Ramos walks your team of men through the second aspect of defining manhood: fighting apathy.

"Apathy is man's greatest fight. We live in a world of calloused, indifferent, passive men. Tragically, many have succumbed to society's emasculating voices telling them to defer their God-given responsibility to lead. But those voices are liars. Fight against them. The Climb is strategically designed to help men win the war against apathy."

Each quick, concise lesson gets you thinking and ties to a corresponding online video intro by Jim, perfect for starting off each team meeting. In this study guide, Jim is your trail guide. Like climbing a steep mountain, apathy is defeated one step at a time, one day at a time.

"The Summit is the peak, so this book is dedicated to a man's greatest hunt - his great hunt for God. There's no other mountain worth summiting. There's no other trophy worth pursuing. And there's no other life worth living except the life committed to seeking the Creator of the Universe. Do you want to be a real man? Do you want to do what you were made for? Good. You're in the right place. Enjoy the view from The Summit!"

Each quick, concise lesson gets you thinking and ties to a corresponding online video intro by Jim, perfect for starting off each team meeting. In this study guide, Jim is your trail guide, leading you to the peak and your life's most important purpose - the passionate pursuit of God.

The Descent: Leading Courageously

In The Descent, the fourth study guide of the 5-book Man Card Series, Jim Ramos walks your team of men through the fourth aspect of defining manhood: leading courageously.

"Manhood is a journey more than a destination. We firmly believe that manhood is a choice. Males are born, but men are made one day at a time. Like the tip of a spear, they're forged in the fires of life. The Descent: Leading Courageously was inspired by three decades of observing Christian men defer the spiritual leadership of their families to pastors, lay leaders, and churches, and away from their biblical mandate.

Essentially, they leaned back and relaxed as pastors and church programs formed their families spiritually. We believe in the local church, but we believe even more that, ultimately, it's the man who will be held accountable for his family's spiritual growth.

Leadership can be tricky, and no two leaders are the same. Choose the path of leadership that best suits you, but do something, anything, just to lead. Welcome to The Descent!" 

Each quick, concise lesson gets you thinking and ties to a corresponding online video intro by Jim, perfect for starting off each team meeting. In this study guide, Jim is your trail guide, encouraging you to step up into your role as the spiritual leader of your home.

The Trail's End: Finishing Strong

In The Trail's End, the final study guide of the 5-book Man Card Series, Jim Ramos walks your team of men through the fifth aspect of defining manhood: finishing strong.

"Don't buy society's lie to work hard, retire, and coast to the end of life's trail. This couldn't be further from Biblical truth. Too many men have put their face to the grindstone only to be forgotten on their tombstone. Don't stop serving God until He takes the final breath from your fighting lungs.

If done right, a man's greatest years are his final years, when he can enjoy the benefits of wisdom gained over a lifetime ascent up the mountain of God. If you've passed the baton, take it back. Finish your life strong." 

Each quick, concise lesson gets you thinking and ties to a corresponding online video intro by Jim, perfect for starting off each team meeting. In this study guide, Jim is your trail guide, teaching you how to finish your life in a way that impacts younger generations and captures the joy of a life well-lived.

Note: This book series was produced as The Man Card series before we re-branded to Men in the Arena, so it references our original ministry name, The Great Hunt for God. We are also in the process of re-issuing these study guides with our new branding and under a new series name, the Strong Men Series. Same books, same ministry, new names.
