Thomas Nelson The Samson Syndrome: What You Can Learn from the Baddest Boy in the Bible

The story of Samson is the perfect vehicle to reveal the twelve tendencies that can bring down strong men, including disregarding their boundaries, struggling with lust, ignoring good advice, and overestimating their own cleverness. Written in a compassionate, funny, and practical style, The Samson Syndrome offers men powerful ideas for making sure they use their greatest strengths to honor God in every situation. Includes study questions for personal or group use.

It's been so long that i've finished reading this book but until now i benefit from those insights the author gave in this book.This book really will change your view and your way (hope so) as one of the reviewer wrote at the back of the book. Honestly, i benifited from this book when there was a time for me to decide on an important thing. I thank God that i bought this book beforehand.This is a sure help in guiding men of God in their christian walk. We may not avoid falling in some cases, but having learned important things from this book is an advantage in gaining your grounds again.This book changed my views.

This is an excellent book. I read it and re-read it and will try to work it into a men's study in the future. Every man should read this. Every man in a position of power MUST read this. I purchased a copy for our church library to put in the men's section as well.

While most Christian literature in this day is rather weak and weakly written, this is an excellent read and speaks to the heart of all men. Many of us may not have all of the issues addressed in this book, but all of us have some of them. There is concrete advice for dealing with men's issues.

I read it in nearly one sitting. The principles in each chapter are some of the most relevant I've found in books for men. We intend to use it in our men's group at the chapel. Highly recommended. Chaplain Terry Hayes

Good book! Used it for a mens small group I was leading. Goes through many things men struggle with (lust, pride, greed, etc.). Good for 18+ years old.
