DeVon Franklin wrote Produced By Faith, The Wait with wife, Meagan Good, The Commandments, and now he’s prepping to release a new book, The Truth About Men.
“When we put love in charge we win.”
While on the Ryan Seacrest radio show, Franklin shared that the idea for the book has been a long time in the making, and who pushed him to write it.
“This is a book that interestingly enough has been a long time in the making because, you know, being a man and realizing that no matter how committed I may want to be, there’s just issues that I deal with and I know that other men deal with,” DeVon shared. “So last fall after the Commandments came out … I told [Maria Shriver during an interview] off the cuff about this idea with the book … and she’s like ‘You’ve got to write that now!’ And I was like ‘No, no, I can’t write another book — I just wrote a book!’ But because there’s so much going on in the world about men, I thought it was time to write it.”
The idea behind the book is that every man deals with lust and every man deals with love.
“In the book, I talk about lust operates like an untrained dog in men,” he explained. “And love is the master. So, as men, in order to get control and have success we have to master our lust because when we see so many challenges that are happening in the world, I believe it’s because men have given themselves over to lust. Lust for women, lust for money, lust for power, lust for sex, and when we learn to master those things with love for self, love for our community, love for women in our lives, love for family — when we put love in charge, we win.”
