Bond of Brothers: Connecting with Other Men Beyond Work, Weather and Sports
And the company of men where there is conversation beyond sports, weather and work chatter. Wes Yoder hit me right in the mouth with a fresh, desperately needed, and penetrating look into the male mind, our modern malaise, and our maddening quest for validation.
Wes says things in this book I have never heard anyone say about men and, more to the point, about me! Grab a steak knife and come to this book hungry.

Bond of Brothers is a highly personal book - a peek into Wes Yoder's struggles in defining and reaching manhood from a Biblical perspective.
He candidly discusses his own past, personal failings, and vulnerabilities. The first half of the book discusses the most common failures of men, fostered by the society around us: The second half goes into the goodness of God, the sufficiency of Christ, the importance of acknowledging weakness so that the power of God can fill us in. Yoder's willingness to give us a peak into his soul - warts and all. I believe that men everywhere can relate to the vulnerabilities that he describes.

Although I am not particular accustomed to his stream-of-consciousness style of writing it's hard to look for any real structure in the book , perhaps it is an appropriate format for an intensely personal book. Sprinkled throughout this book are nuggets of wisdom, ultimately pointing to man's desperate need for full dependence on God.

May 19, Bonnie rated it it was amazing. There is so much great truth and wisdom in this small book. Yoder explains the difficulties men have being relational. He does an excellent job of teaching us what real community means. In explaining why "accountability groups" often don't help, he says "We were still lost in the paradigm of religious duties, systematic theology, and fixing what was broken instead of inviting Jesus to be present continually in the midst of our mess so we could be forgiven and healed rather than fixed.
I highly There is so much great truth and wisdom in this small book. I highly recommend this book for both men and women.

Jan 31, Wassenario rated it liked it. Delivery was a little weak for me. However any man would benefit from the ideas in this book.
Jan 16, Michael Stallard rated it it was amazing. Wes Yoder's "Bond of Brothers" is an impassioned call for men to connect. Gleaning insights from personal experiences and astute observations of today's culture, Yoder makes the case that men are relationally isolated which leads to all sorts of dysfunction in them, their families, their church and their communities.
He calls for what I would describe as the courage to connect with others note: So, in a way, Yoder is pleading with men t Wes Yoder's "Bond of Brothers" is an impassioned call for men to connect. So, in a way, Yoder is pleading with men to show more of their hearts even though it goes against our culture for men to be more open. Yoder is spot on. In John 17 Jesus prays for unity among believers and unity only comes when believers connect via authentic conversation, fellowship and confession.
Yoder shares the powerful story of how following two heart attack his own father's life was saved by confessing his sins, an event that had a profound impact on Yoder and led him a year later to confess his sins to his father. Yoder's father had the courage to confess and connect which inspired Yoder to follow suit. Their shared confessions developed a strong sense of connection between father and son. Reading this book will encourage you to follow their example. This is a timely book that reflects great wisdom.
It would make an excellent selection for men's study groups and Christian book clubs. Lots of great material in this book. It is, however, a bit repetitive. It also seems to be written for someone 20 years older than me written for someone in their 50s. But there is great encouragement in this book for Christian men to develop more deep, male friendships.
