Why do some strong men fail while others succeed? Like the biblical character Samson, all strong menthose who are successful, influential, self-confident, aggressive, or widely respectedface twelve tendencies that can lead to sin and even personal tragedy.
The adventurous and gifted Samsonwhose story is told in four chapters of the book of Judgesnever had the intention of fighting against God. He was just a fun-loving guy looking for a good time. Like so many strong men today, he didnt think his sin was any big deal. But its clear as you read his story that the older he got, the more sin held him in its grip.
The Samson Syndrome is a set of twelve tendencies or challenges that strong men will always face. Obstacles like lust, ignoring good advice, big egos, fears of authentic intimacy, losing sight of the big picture, and others, have the ability to be any mans undoing. Atteberrys mission is to remind men of the joy of living within Gods boundaries, because he believes theres a little Samson in all of us. With Gods help were capable of such great things. But were never more than one bad choice away from humiliation. However, it doesnt have to be that way if you want to fulfill your God-given potential.

It has been an excellent resource, helping to identify and overcome the obstacles and problems that interfere with a man's Christian walk. It generates discussion and prayer about the external and internal struggles Christian men face everyday, and has been life-changing for many of our men. The wives are enjoying their "new and improved" husbands!
This is a must read for any Christian man who desires to walk closer with God.
