The Real Win: Pursuing God's Plan for Authentic Success - Member Book will help you discover what true success for a man looks like, particularly as a follower of Jesus Christ. Modeled after hunting/fishing shows, two men―Colt McCoy, record-setting Texas Longhorns quarterback now in the NFL, and Matt Carter, pastor of The Austin Stone Community Church―explore the essence and purpose of biblical manhood with the men and family who shaped them. Six lessons focus on the individual characteristics of being a man, including: leadership, faithfulness/trust, idolatry, work, pursuing your wife, and leaving a legacy. Accompanying videos cover Colt and Matt and other family members on hunting and fishing trips at two legendary Texas ranches. This is a great resource for men who don't usually attend Bible studies since it involves a popular sports figure and the visual experience of hunting.

The 2008 Heisman trophy runner-up, Colt now plays in the NFL and has been involved in domestic and foreign ministries.

Matt Carter is the lead pastor at Austin Stone Community Church. Planted in 2002, the church has grown from a core team of fifteen to more than twelve thousand regular attendees today. Matt graduated from Texas A&M and holds a master’s degree in divinity from Southwestern Seminary, where he is currently pursuing a doctorate of ministry.
