The Roar Within
Unleashing the Powerful Truth of Who You Really Are
Reclaim a life of purpose, courage, and confidence
Every boy has dreams of the man he will become--exploring the world, fighting the enemy, and being dangerous for good. He imagines himself as the hero, the expert, the one others look up to. Then somewhere along the way, the lies of the enemy knock him down, his dreams are shattered, and he loses his purpose as the enemy attempts to rob him of his true identity.
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? Am I enough?

"The Roar Within is a must-read for men. It is compelling, a page-turner, and brilliant in speaking directly to the things that take us out as men and help us live out of who God says we are. Brent is unique in his ability to weave together entertaining adventures as a professional outdoorsman with incredible wisdom as a seasoned leader, and his humility, honesty, and wisdom are both inspiring and refreshing."

"Our culture's onslaught against righteous masculinity is Satan's strategy to destroy men's role as image-bearers of God. But God has raised up His spokesmen. One such warrior for truth is Brent Henderson. The Roar Within exposes the emasculating lies of the enemy and boldly proclaims God's life-changing words that every man must hear: you are enough! A compelling, victorious adventure and a must-read for every Christian man!"

"I have known and partnered with Brent for a number of years, and what I and the men within my influence love about him is his ability to combine fascinating, true life experiences with genuine humility and terrific insight. True to form, The Roar Within is for every guy who has either lost or never found his true voice--the one God predestined for him to declare His authority over any opposition to His heart and legacy."
Randy (RT) Phillips, former president of Promise Keepers and men's pastor at Life Austin Church, Texas
"Through this book of great adventures, Brent invites you to join him in his greatest adventure - the discovery of trusting God with yourself."
Bill Thrall, cofounder of Trueface.org and coauthor of The Cure
"A must-read! The Roar Within is every man's survival guide to help navigate the wilds and chaos within him. This book brings to light what kills a man on the inside while providing hope and practical methods to defeat these 'man-killers.' It gives a voice and supernatural strength to the subdued spirit or 'roar' within a man's heart that, once found and released, provides the courage, strength, and passion to lead himself, his family, and others according to God's original design for a man. Be prepared for a wild, riveting ride . . . and find a comfortable spot, because right from the first paragraph, you will not be able to put this book down."
Russell Peck, Palm Coast, Florida, law enforcement officer (retired), outdoor enthusiast, and ministry leader
"In The Roar Within, Brent Henderson masterfully and insightfully dismantles the false narratives men have been taught and begins replacing lies with truth. I've had the honor to know, travel with, and share experiences with Brent in some pretty extreme environments. Through these experiences, both physical and spiritual, I've come to the place (as all men do eventually) of asking myself, "Who am I really, where is my true value, and am I enough?" The Roar Within takes you on a journey of self-discovery in search of those answers."
Ken Dodson, president of True North Ventures, Inc.
"If I were you, I would read this book! Whether you are a nonbeliever, a new Christian, or have been a believer for decades, The Roar Within will give you great insight into the love of God and the joy that comes from knowing who you are. No matter where you are in your life's journey, the wisdom of this book will expose the devil's lies and guide you to the joy God intended for you. Enjoy Brent Henderson's labor of love and rejoice in finding your roar!"
Will Primos, founder of Primos Hunting
"As a wife, a mom of two boys who are now grown men, a grandmother to two little boys, and a woman working in a mainly male industry, I'm still learning about how God uniquely wired men. After reading The Roar Within, I feel a great sense of relief realizing I don't have to dampen the spirit of adventure of the men in my life; it's inborn for a purpose. It's so crucial that our boys have an earthly father who has his focus on his heavenly Father. Each man has to find the confidence that only Christ can give and, in turn, find the roar within that God wants him to share with the world. I highly recommend this book to all women to help them understand the warrior, protector, and adventurer buried in the heart of every man, because it will free you to be the woman God made you to be."
