Description

In Seven Men, New York Times best-selling author Eric Metaxas presents seven exquisitely crafted short portraits of widely known—but not well understood—Christian men, each of whom uniquely showcases a commitment to live by certain virtues in the truth of the gospel. Written in a beautiful and engaging style, Seven Men addresses what it means (or should mean) to be a man today, at a time when media and popular culture present images of masculinity that are not the picture presented in Scripture and historic civil life. What does it take to be a true exemplar as a father, brother, husband, leader, coach, counselor, change agent, and wise man? What does it mean to stand for honesty, courage, and charity, especially at times when the culture and the world run counter to those values? Each of the seven biographies represents the life of a man who experienced the struggles and challenges to be strong in the face of forces and circumstances that would have destroyed the resolve of lesser men. Each of the seven men profiled—George Washington, William Wilberforce, Eric Liddell, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Jackie Robinson, John Paul II, and Charles Colson—call listeners to a more elevated walk and lifestyle, one that embodies the gospel in the world around us.

Professional reviews

"What do President George Washington, baseball legend Jackie Robinson, Pope John Paul II, abolitionist William Wilberforce, missionary Eric Liddell, and Nixon conspirator Charles Colson have in common? Writer Eric Metaxas believes all seven men were great and credits their faith in God for their success. This is surprising in the case of Colson, who found religion after his conviction for his part in the Watergate scandal. Narrator Tom Parks gives voice to Metaxas's beliefs in this strongly Christian book about the importance of faith in the historical world and today. Parks sounds earnest and sincere as he recounts the lives of the men and the religious epiphanies that changed their lives. His delivery is straightforward, even when the message sounds like it's coming from a pulpit. M.S. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
