The Way Forward is a road–map for men who want to cut through the noise and distraction of the 21st century and take definite steps toward spiritual maturity. This book follows the simple format of problem, solution, and plan. Men who read it will walk away with both a clear diagnosis for why they feel stuck and a practical action plan for moving forward.

There are multiple resources on discipleship, but Joe Barnard, in The Way Forward, offers a simple ‘survival guide’ for men who know Jesus and want to take the next step in their spiritual journeys. This short and practical guidebook addresses problems men encounter (e.g., exhaustion, frustration, distraction) and offers meaningful and attainable solutions. These solutions are coupled with action plans that pave clear pathways to genuine growth in Christ.

Ken Boa, President, Reflections Ministries & author of several books including ‘Conformed to His Image’ and ‘Life in the Presence of God’

Most men hit a moment that they feel like their spiritual growth stalls out. I remember when I hit that point too—several times. And eventually, we all will. And the one thing that helps is a simple guide. This book is that guide for men—it’s a way to move forward.
