GUEST: ROBERT WOLGEMUTH, General Editor, CSB Men’s Daily Bible 

We’re coming up on the day where we annually celebrate fathers. The sad irony is that men and fathers are often blamed, marginalized, and vilified for the ills in our society. The worldview behind the resentment of men is one that rejects God’s design for male leadership, particularly in the home and church.

For their part, too many men have allowed themselves to become feminized and passive in the way they think, act, and dress. Instead of displaying traits of biblical manhood, like courage, decision-making, productivity, integrity, and purity—too often men are glad to sit back, watch the game, and have women fill their God-given role.

The only way back from this departure is for men to be saved and sanctified. The inner man must change for the outer man to change.

But there is no “easy button” for this—regeneration requires repentance and faith, sanctification requires active obedience to the Word and engagement in the local church.

God does not leave men—or anyone—without hope. God promises to save all who call on Him (Romans 10:13) and to set apart for His use all who humble themselves before Him (1 Peter 5:6).

In His inspired, inerrant, infallible, immutable, and authoritative Word, God provides the truth men need. But just getting a Bible is the start—the day-by-day priority of reading, studying, and praying through it is the essential discipline that every man needs.

A new Men’s Daily Bible has just released from Holman Bibles, the oldest publisher of Bibles in North America. The Men’s Daily Bible isn’t a study Bible per se but it contains lots of added features for men:

  • Book introductions to connect all 66 books of the Bible
  • Over 50 “Insight for Life” articles from Christian leaders such as Kevin DeYoung, Steve Lawson, Albert Mohler, Stephen Nichols, the late R.C. Sproul, and Tim Challies
  • 260 “Insight for the Day” devotionals to prepare men to face the day
  • 95 “Questions For Men” with answers for discussion

Our host, David Wheaton, contributed one of the short articles for this Bible.  The article is at the beginning of the Bible, before Genesis 1, entitled “Embracing a Christian Worldview”.

Robert Wolgemuth, the general editor of the Men’s Daily Bible, former president of Thomas Nelson Publishers, and longtime noted literary agent joins us this weekend to discuss how God’s Word changed his life, and his prayer that it does the same for many other men.

If the last name Wolgemuth rings a bell, Robert’s wife is Nancy Demoss Wolgemuth, the host Revive Our Hearts radio program. There’s a very compelling story of loss and God’s providence in bringing them together…and we’ll get to that this weekend as well.

Orders made by Tues. June 11 with Priority Mail should arrive in time for Father’s Day. We cannot guarantee arrival after June 11.
