As a leader in teaching, training, and transforming boys in Detroit, Jason Wilson shares his own story of discovering what it means to “be a man” in this life-changing memoir.
 
His grandfather’s lynching in the deep South, the murders of his two older brothers, and his verbally harsh and absent father all worked together to form Jason Wilson’s childhood. But it was his decision to acknowledge his emotions and yield to God’s call on his life that made Wilson the man and leader he is today. 
 
As the founder of one of the country’s most esteemed youth organizations, Wilson has decades of experience in strengthening the physical, mental, and emotional spirit of boys and men. In Cry Like a Man, Wilson explains the dangers men face in our culture’s definition of “masculinity” and gives readers hope that healing is possible.
 
As Wilson writes, “My passion is to help boys and men find strength to become courageously transparent about their own brokenness as I shed light on the symptoms and causes of childhood trauma and ‘father wounds.’ I long to see men free themselves from emotional incarceration—to see their minds renewed, souls weaned, and relationships restored.”

Reggie Bush, Heisman Trophy Winner; Super Bowl Champion 

‘Growing up playing football, you are taught to never show weakness. No matter what the situation was, I was told to always ‘be a man’ and suck it up. Unfortunately, that mentality forced me to bottle up my emotions, causing some long-term negative effects and conflicts in my life. Jason Wilson is leading the way to freedom from emotional incarceration.’

Chris Broussard, NBA analyst and broadcaster; FOX Sports

‘Jason Wilson’s incredible interactions with young boys will make you cry. Exhibiting strength in all its forms—physical, emotional, spiritual—he connects with the students at Detroit’s Cave of Adullam Transformational Training Academy in a way that both empowers and inspires them to strive for their wildest dreams and to know with certainty that they are indeed attainable. In Cry Like a Man, Wilson shares his remarkable journey through unspeakable loss to wholeness and fulfillment. Every young man needs a Jason Wilson in his life. Through Cry Like a Man, many will find one.’

Rodney Bullard, Vice President of Community Affairs, Chick-fil-A, Inc.; Executive Director, Chick-fil-A Foundation

‘Jason Wilson is a transformational leader with a God-given ability to stand conventional wisdom on its head, unearthing the power found in struggle, pain, and compassion. Jason’s life is an authentic testament to the manner, in which God uses trials, tears, and triumph to purge trauma and life’s losses from the hearts of men. The truth found within this book will empower men of all ethnicities with the tools needed to break free from emotional incarceration.’
