Product Description

Were it not for ____________, I wouldn't be who I am today

Men have a way of rubbing off on one another—for better or worse. You will be influenced and you will influence, especially when you have regular one-on-one interactions with another man. Be intentional and become the man God made you to be, while learning to change other men's lives for the better.

Men of Influence

teaches you the importance of mentoring, how to find a good mentor, and what you can offer others as a mentor (even if you don't feel qualified). Learn:
  • how to approach a mentor without scaring him off
  • what to expect at the beginning, middle, and end of a mentoring relationship
  • what you have to offer to another man

People change one person at a time. Realize your full potential and help others do the same through the simple practice of mentoring.

For more than 35 years I have known, loved, and admired Howie Hendricks.  I am not alone.  He has left his mark on thousands of lives.  In a real sense, only he knows the mentoring secrets that have marked men for a lifetime.  I'm grateful he has decided to put into print his mentoring guidelines and techniques.  They are threads drawn from the fabric of God's timeless tapestry.  Men of Influence will be the classic on mentoring.  I commend Howie and his son Bill for this contribution to our lives.
-Chuck Swindoll, President, Dallas Theological Seminary, Radio Bible Teacher, Insight for Living

Howard and Bill Hendricks have produced a book much-needed in America today.  Men of Influence is a classic Hendricks approach to life.  Insightful, inspiring, and encouraging.  No one will put the book down unchanged.  Great information.
-Zig Ziglar, Author and Speaker

Howard Hendricks is always worth listening to.  Having benefitted in a life-changing way from being mentored by a man thirty years my senior, I can recommend mentoring enthusiastically.  Men of Influence gives you a valuable "how to" guide to the process.
-Bob Buford, Author of Halftime: Changing Your Game Plan from Success to Significance

Mentoring, as my good friend Howard and his son Bill suggest, is one of the most powerful yet under-utilized disciplines for men today.  My life would not have taken the course it did without the input of a few key men along the way.  As a coach, I saw firsthand the difference between players who had trusted mentors, and those who unfortunately did not.  This straightforward book will inspire and motivate you in a profound way.  I highly recommend it.
-Tom Landry, NFL Hall of Fame, Dallas Cowboys

Dr. Howard Hendricks is one of my favorite people.  He combines a great wit and keen intellect in his teaching.  Both Howard and Bill have provided a much-needed message for Christians today: We all need mentors along life's path.  Their book also helps us to understand that we need to mentor others.  I highly recommend it.
-Larry Burkett, Founder and President, Christian Financial Concepts

This book is a balanced combination of solid biblical principles and fascinating personal experiences.  It grips you, instructs you, and excites you about doing what God wants you to do.  It makes mentoring an adventure that leads to maturity and service.

I have admired, respected, and loved Howard Hendricks for more than forty years.  As a speaker and writer on leadership and mentoring, he is without equal.  Mentoring and being mentored are among the most important but often missed relationships in life.  Howard Hendricks' wisdom and insights are a treasure, and I recommend this book with enthusiasm.  This book can change your life--and that of another.

I can think of no one in the Christian world better qualified to speak on mentoring than Howie Hendricks.  I am a product of his mentoring and can honestly say that few have shaped my life as he has.  In this book, Howard and Bill do a phenomenal job of challenging those who need to be mentored, as well as those who need to mentor: This is a significant book.
-Ronald W. Blue, Founder and Managing Partner, Ronald Blue and Co.

An outstandingly helpful book on the powerful concept of mentoring--something every Christian needs to be involved in.  A great resource.
-Lorne C. Sanny, The Navigators

Howard and Bill Hendricks' book could not come at a more important time in the history of the church and our nation.  There is such a need, especially in the urban communities, for mentors--people who can encourage and challenge our youth and be personal examples of how to live.  I strongly recommend this book.
John Perkins, Publisher, Urban Family Magazine

Anytime I can sit at Howie Hendricks' feet to learn, I'll do it.  Reading this book is no exception!  I cannot think of an individual more qualified by the experience and insight to address effective spirtiual mentoring than Howard.  Here's a graphic manual, eminently practical and applicable, by one who speaks out of his experience in the fine art of mentoring.  Don't miss his insights!
-Ted W. Engstrom, President Emeritus, World Vision

There's a long line of men in front of me with whom I share one thing in common: Howard Hendricks is our spiritual mentor.  Every Timothy has a Paul.  Dr. Hendricks is a Paul to us.  His iron has sharpened our ax.  Lay yours upon the grinder and watch the sparks fly!
-Joe White, President, Kanakuk-Kanakomo Kamps, Inc.

Bravo!  Howard and Bill offer refreshing, straight talk about men's needs, our tendency to avoid them, and some down-to-earth help.  I felt invited to break out of some bad habits and ruts and to form some partnerships with other men of faith.  Thank you!
