Into the Wilds: The Dangerous Truth Every Man Needs to Know
Brent Alan Henderson understands what makes men tick, how to capture and hold their attention, and how to move them to action.
Bunk next to Brent as he’s stranded in the unforgiving Alaskan wilderness with hungry brown bears circling his tent. Ride along as storms and riptides thrash his rubber Zodiac, trying to dump you both into the icy depths of Alaska’s Cook Inlet. Sit at his campfire on the remote African plains, listening to roaring lions on the hunt. Become marooned in the North Pacific Ocean, almost drown multiple times, risk hypothermia, and somehow survive the trip back to the home front—only to face new challenges.
Throughout these adventures, Into the Wilds will help you to discover who you really are at your core, while also providing the necessary tools to enable you to break free from unhealthy thoughts, emotions, and actions. It’s all about identity.
Brent’s firsthand collection of hard-to-top guy stories, along with the lessons he learned from surviving his own personal failures and struggles, make Into the Wilds a book you will read from cover to cover. It will awaken your heart, guide you through the wilderness, and equip you to overcome the harsh realities of the unseen and overwhelming forces of life.
For men AND women
Whether you seek adventure first hand or live it through the adventures of others, this is a good read! The stories will keep you on edge, the message he delivers will "hook" you. Brent not only let's us see and experience the beauty (and dangers) of God's creation but shows us that one's identity and self worth are not defined by how hard we work or what others think. He shows us the hope and truth of the Gospel. Will continue to recommend this book to the men and women in my life!
Spot-on messages on the most important thing a man needs to know
"I have spent much of my life working with men and gifted teachers of men. I could not relay more strongly how powerful and, more importantly, how effective is Brent Henderson. Brent combines a mix of hard-to-top guy stories from his professional hunting background and adventures with spot-on messages on the most important thing a man needs to know. On top of all this, his humility is genuine and the tools he gives are transformational and transferable."

God did not intend for man to walk this life alone! As iron sharpens iron! A rope of three strands...
Our Christian walk as men is much like combat in the desert. We need to train our minds to act without thinking. When sin pops up and our enemy comes to attack, we need to be so grounded in the Spirit as to automatically know what God wants us to do—then do it. When we fall, we need to have a loving, nurturing, nonjudgmental wingman who will come alongside us and help us get back on our feet. Into the Wilds will help you find your way through the dry spiritual desert that many of us have been trapped in. Study, learn, train on what you learn, and find a wingman to watch your back. Find the life God has designed for you—a life full of adventure, spiritual battles, and passion.
Freedom is God's purpose for our lives
Brent's book is a must-read because when we're under attack, we need to know we can defeat the enemy, or escape to fight another day. We also need to know how to do it. How to escape the judgement and criticism by others to live the way we were designed to live. If you're called to serve, whether it be your family, or your company, or your nation, you need to know what you were made to be, and how to maximize your potential in that role. "Into the Wilds" walks you through the steps to freedom, then the truths you need to know to make full use of that freedom in service to others. Take a walk into the wilds with Brent, try some "Man Tea", get free, and you'll never look back.
An engaging and insightful journey to Faith.
How Brent Alan Henderson ties all his adventures together with the true clarity of God’s grace is insightful, heartfelt, brutally honest and gets to the nitty gritty of the Gospel. This book may be geared toward "dangerous truth " men need to know but as a woman it gave me a lense to more clearly see how my husband and other men may view the world and their faith. It also helped clear up some of my own faith misconceptions and reminded me
" It is grace that leads us to the Father, not fear or shame".
FREEDOM - with the truths & tools to live there...
Having three sons and two grandsons, I understand the need to not only know the truth, but to have tools to implement those truths that set us free to live boldly the life God has planned for us, free from any dependency of other's approval and even our own performance.
'Into the Wilds: The Dangerous Truth Every Man Needs to Know' offers us an opportunity to renew our minds with amazing truths that can set us free, along with the tools to implement those truths that will indeed transform our lives. Brent's vulnerability helps us pull down the walls we build and take a closer look at ourselves.
The adventures in this book are absolutely riveting, but the truths Brent presents are even better. This is not just a great read, this is a reference book. Once you read it, you'll probably read it again, want to keep it for review, and make sure your family and friends all have one too.
