Summary

Recovering nice guy Paul Coughlin points the way for all men who yearn to live lives of boldness and conviction - like Jesus. Using anecdotes from his own life, powerful and poignant stories, and vivid examples from our culture, Coughlin shows how men can say no to the "nice guy" syndrome and yes to lives of purpose, passion, and vitality.

In this revised and expanded edition, Coughlin adds vital insights on the changes he's seen in churches and the greater culture in the decade since No More Christian Nice Guy was first published. This radical and hopeful message elevates the true biblical model of manhood and now includes testimonials from men and women whose lives have been altered by this book. Coughlin also looks at the shifting expectations men face in relationships and in the workplace and how younger Christians in particular are subject to harmful views about masculinity. Part inspiration, part instruction, and part manifesto, this book gives men the courage to move from passivity to assertiveness.

excellent book

I suffer from Christian nice guy syndrome. This book opened my eyes to sin I knew was there but couldn't see clearly. This book tore the bandage off and allowed the pure air of God's truth to provide real healing. great book.

only for the angry disgruntled Christian.

Christ's teachings were a lot more Optimistic and loving than this book portrays. I can see why we might enjoy it. It's angry, frustrated and explicit in its condemnation of "relaxed" Christianity.

Let's be honest, modern religion Is becoming more and more relaxed in this book is increasingly becoming tone deaf for millennials and Gen. X. If you were a struggling Christian this will either be the book that solidifies your faith or destroys it completely.

much needed for some

some decent (though some outdated) theology (i see he has a new version.)

but definitely delivers on the defense of masculine aggression in defense of others (and therefor self, as a means of serving others)

Christian red pill

This book is pretty much the christian version of the red pill. Paul Coughlin brings up how the church has been increasingly feminized and how most men have lost their masculinity. Worth the listen for any church man that is often told he is a nice guy.

Water for my thirsty soul

I am now a recovering CNG. The contents of this book helped me free the part of me that I held captive for so long. It feels good to be free.

The Christ wasn't a Gay hippie on a cloud

Very refreshing, given that most protestant leaning churches preach the nice, harmless, hairless, stained glass Jesus.

Fundamentally transformational

Absolutely epic in its details of how to put off the old man who rolled over thinking he was doing God a favor…!

The book I didn't know I needed.

This should be required reading to wake Christian nice guys from their mediocrity, so they can understand what has been suppressing them from living like Jesus.

This book has opened my eyes to key parts of Jesus that I had never been taught in church. With biblical backing to each facet of Jesus' personality, I can clearly see my niceness as a massive liability in my life, and I can practically apply what I've read to my life and maybe more importantly I can help guide my boys to be good not nice.
