Dr. Edwin Louis Cole (1922-2002), known as "the father of the Christian men's movement," was called by God to speak with a prophetic voice to the men of this generation. To that end, he founded the Christian Men's Network, a ministry that majors in men and communicates the reality that manhood and Christlikeness are synonymous. A former pastor, evangelist, missionary, business executive, and denominational leader, Dr. Cole and his wife, Nancy, served the Lord together for more than fifty years. Over four million copies of his books are in circulation in more than forty languages, including his best-selling Maximized Manhood. Since his recent death, his legacy and his vision are being carried on by his "sons" in the faith as they reach tens of thousands of men each month via books, videos, and other media.
