THE ROAR WITHIN
In this hard-hitting book, world-class hunter, adventurer, and popular speaker Brent Henderson takes men on a journey to some of the most dangerous and deadly places on earth. Along the way, he helps each man discover that the most powerful force in the universe can be found in his spirit, where God resides. He shows men how to recover what’s been lost by answering their biggest questions: Who am I really? Where does my value come from? and Am I enough?

Into the Wilds by Brent Alan Henderson/Whitaker House
Henderson lives a life of adventure. He has fished and hunted in Alaska, confronted poisonous snakes and other dangers on safari in Africa, and has hunted wild boar, deer, caribou, and many other animals around the world. He’s also a Christian who speaks to more than 40 outreach events each year, trying to reach men who are normally not interested in the church.
Henderson believes the church hasn’t done a good job of discipling men who have the same kinds of interests that he does. Jesus was a fisher of men, and He knew where to find them. Jesus didn’t “find them slouching in a church per, half asleep. He went wherever they were and spent time with them, fished with them, went o parties with them, and then He asked them to follow Him.”
The author wants to take lessons learned from the unpredictable wilds of nature and apply them to the home front. He tells compelling stories of his own experiences and connects them to spiritual teaching such as finding your true identity in Christ, building trust with other men, recognizing and rejecting Satan’s lies, and building stronger marriages.
Henderson has worked as a professional musician, performing with such artists as Steven Curtis Chapman and Sandi Patty. He also has faced personal failures that he confronts honestly in this book as he provides guidance to other men.
Into the Wilds is a unique combination of adventure memoir and spiritual coaching that many men will find appealing.
