T.D. Jakes was named by People magazine as the best preacher in America.
T. D. Jakes has helped millions of women discover the glorious truth of who they are. His bestseller The Lady, Her Lover and Her Lord was a groundbreaking look at a woman's most important relationships-with God, with the man in her life, and with herself-and was the first step toward hope and healing for women across the nation.
Now Bishop Jakes brings his unique perspective to this revealing look into the heart and mind of a man.
Men feel the pressure of fulfilling many roles in life: husband, father, son, businessman, and leader. Now Bishop Jakes comes to their aid with this guidebook to help every man understand his own emotional inner workings, and to offer biblically inspired direction toward being the man God wants him to be.
Practical, inspirational, and refreshingly honest, He-Motions is also the ultimate source for women who seek to comprehend and care for the men in their lives. It will help them decode men's often-baffling behavior and will offer eye-opening insights that will bring greater intimacy and healing to their relationships.
He-Motions will bring clarity and hope to men and help them strengthen their relationships with themselves, with the women in their lives, and ultimately, with their God. It is the book that millions of men and women have been waiting for.
Dallas-based preacher Jakes's breakout book, Woman, Thou Art Loosed, established his unique brand of self-help literature saturated with biblical stories. In this new book, bound for bestsellerdoom, he turns his attention to "a man's relationships," using the many-sided King David as his starting point. Jakes is by no means the first writer to troll David's story for insights into masculinity, but he brings an inimitable combination of street smarts and worldly panache to the task. He also draws on the stories of countless men who have come to him for advice on coping with success and failure, sex and love, and relating to their fathers and sons. His recollections of his own struggles, especially a moving section about the death of his father when Jakes was 16, balance his religious, ambitious prose with an uncommon transparency. The quality of the writing falters in the second half, as Jakes expounds rather conventionally on the arenas of power, money and sex-the "PMS" he says can sabotage a marriage. Indeed, unmarried men may find this book off-putting, so strong is Jakes's assumption that family is the center of masculine identity. But his distinctly unmacho vision of fatherhood, friendship and lifelong marital romance will be appreciated by men who embrace his call to be "men in motion, trying to move toward what God wants us to be."
