With no-holds-barred honesty and poignant storytelling, Nate Larkin introduces a model of community and friendship that is reinvigorating men's ministry across the country, a model he calls The Samson Society. Too many men see the biblical hero Samson as their model for manhood--a rugged individualist of the highest order. Yet, Samson's solitary successes were eventually overcome by moral weaknesses. Larkin, through the story of his own past and the stories of those in The Samson Society, offers a radical, refreshing alternative.

Nate's deeply personal story of addiction and deliverance is moving and inspiring. I have found help and hope from this book and have become a Pirate Monk myself. I recommend it to all who struggle with addictions and those close to those who do. Read full review
