Seven Men: And the Secret of Their Greatness

Seven Men: And the Secret of Their Greatness

Eric Metaxas

In Seven Men, New York Times best-selling writer Eric Metaxas provides seven exquisitely crafted brief pix of extensively known—but no longer good understood—Christian males, each one of whom uniquely showcases a dedication to stay by means of definite virtues within the fact of the gospel.

Written in a stunning and interesting variety, Seven Men addresses what it skill (or should still suggest) to be a guy this present day, at a time whilst media and pop culture current photographs of masculinity that aren't the image offered in Scripture and ancient civil lifestyles. What does it take to be a real exemplar as a father, brother, husband, chief, trainer, counselor, swap agent, and clever guy? What does it suggest to face for honesty, braveness, and charity, specifically now and then whilst the tradition and the area run counter to these values?

Each of the seven biographies represents the lifetime of a guy who skilled the struggles and demanding situations to be robust within the face of forces and situations that will have destroyed the unravel of lesser males. all the seven males profiled—George Washington, William Wilberforce, Eric Liddell, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Jackie Robinson, John Paul II, and Charles Colson—call the reader to a extra increased stroll and way of life, one who embodies the gospel on the planet round us.
