Publisher's Description

"All through the Bible, we see stories of bold and brash men who followedGod’s call into some incredible adventures. In How God Makes Men,Patrick Morley reminds us that God still makes those kinds of guys."
—Dave Ramsey, New York Times best-selling authorand nationally syndicated radio show host

God’s Way for You to Become God’s Man

 
Let’s face it—men today are under severe attack. The battle line against biblical manhood is clearly drawn and fiercely contested. More than ever, men who want to follow Christ are asking:
 
• Why is it so hard to live an authentic Christian life?
• Who will show me how to thrive as a father, a husband, and on the job?
• What should I do when I’m being tested to the breaking point?
 
Fortunately, the Bible preserves crucial details about the powerful lessons learned by men who have already faced and answered these questions. In How God Makes Men, renowned expert on men’s issues Patrick Morley takes you into Scripture for a first-hand encounter with:
 
• Ten epic stories of the Bible’s most talked-about men
• Ten proven principles—based on their failures and successes—that show how God works in a man’s life, and how you can cooperate with Him in yours
• The huge promise that you can become the man God created you to be
 
Don’t settle for less. Join Patrick on this epic adventure of becoming God’s man. You’ll discover how to prevail in tough times and release God’s power in every area of your life.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for How God Makes Men

"Don’t we all sometimes feel like there’s another man coiled up inside us who desperately wants to get out? In How God Makes Men, Pat Morley is going to show you God’s way to help you release that man. This isn’t just a book. It’s a skeleton key to unlock God’s master plan for your life. Read it. Apply it. Let God change your life. You’re going
to love this book!"
—Mark Batterson, New York Times best-selling author of The Circle Maker

"Pat Morley knows men—what they want, what they need, and God’s way of helping them get it. Now he has written a watershed book that clearly explains God’s role in changing men’s lives. After unpacking ten timeless principles of how God forged our Bible heroes, Pat will help you connect the dots to your life today. I highly recommend How God
Makes Men
for your personal reading or small group."
—Dr. Tony Evans, president of the Urban Alternative and senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship

"There are all kinds of help out there to encourage us to be better men. But nothing compares to the manhood wisdom drawn directly from God’s Word. And that’s what Patrick Morley richly blesses us with in How God Makes Men. I highly recommend you drink deeply from it."
—Robert Lewis, founder of Men’s Fraternity

"I believe that men are under attack in our culture. Television and other media feed us a steady stream of weak, complacent men—but that’s not the kind of man you see in Scripture! All through the Bible, we see stories of bold and brash men who followed God’s call into some incredible adventures. In How God Makes Men, Patrick Morley reminds us that God still makes those kinds of guys."
—Dave Ramsey, New York Times best-selling author and nationally syndicated radio-show host

"This is not a book. It’s a gift. Patrick Morley has taken what decades of faithful ministry to men has taught him and laid this wisdom atop the incredibly poignant, true stories of men in the Bible. What God is up to in your life and mine has everything to do with our learning obedience and a faithful walk with Him…while He writes our story. Because of God’s grace, our story even has a chance to be epic. Depending on what you and I need right now, this book will be either an encouragement or a necessary kick in the pants."
—Dr. Robert Wolgemuth, best-selling author

"Pat Morley is a masterful teacher of men. How God Makes Men is his most ambitious project since his best-selling Man in the Mirror twentyfive years ago. It’s a fascinating blend of the thousands of up-close-and-personal conversations with men in a variety of circumstances in a turbulent world matched with the stories of ten Bible heroes and how they faced their own strikingly similar issues. There is nothing quite like it!"
—Bob Buford, founder of Leadership Network and author of Halftime and Finishing Well

"God takes strong men, breaks them down and makes them weak. No man wants to go through this, but this is the path to being used by God. Pat Morley has experienced this and understands the process. For the man who is broken and confused, How God Makes Men will bring hope, healing, and biblical clarity. I read it, highlighted it, and marked it up. That to me is the acid test for a valuable book."
—Steve Farrar, author of Point Man

"No matter how much you already know—or don’t know—about God, this captivating book is going to help you grow leaps and bounds in your relationship with Christ. Pat clearly demonstrates how God makes a man by using the personal stories of ten great biblical characters to show us how we, too, can adopt ten life-changing principles
that are the trademark of God’s man. Pat’s knowledge and passion to help every man be the person God created him to be makes How God Makes Men a must-read!"
—Kyle Vann, energy consultant and retired CEO of Entergy-Koch LP

    This is a very good book for any man new to following Christ or someone that is not familiar with any of these 10 stories in the bible. Also for others who may be thinking about taking that next step of faith but procrastinating. "How God Makes Men is a good and encouraging read. Our walk with the Lord is not about us but what God wants to do through us.

    Well known author Patrick Morley does it again with his book, "How God Makes Men". He uses 10 Bible characters to bring us 10 principles that are sure to help us understand the ways of God and how men can respond and understand God in a way that helps us with lifes challenges. I have read several of Morley's other titles but think this is one of his best. Although it is geared toward men, women could learn from these examples as well. My favorite may have been, the principle of the greater good, where Joseph is the character we study. Joseph had it all only to be falsely imprisoned, only after being sold into slavery by his own brothers. To understand God's bigger purpose, is to appreciate the challenges in our lives and live by faith that God does not abandon us. Pick up a copy and see what is your favorite principle. I received this book for free from blogging for books for my review. And I am glad I did.

    Seldom do I rate anything as excellent.I must make and exception and rate this book as excellent. It is completely Biblical and practical for all men. It is where the rubber meets the road.

    There was no pie in the sky stuff, just good stuff centered around the word of God and ten great men from the Word.

    Patrick does not put these men on a pedestal but lets us look into their lives good , bad and ugly. We learn the strength and the weakness of each of the men. I so identify with Peter and his zeal and his foot shaped mouth.

    Thank you Patrick Morely for this practical helpful easy to read guide and leading us into the application.

    Highly recommended from one who can be critical.

    The author of the classic Man in the Mirror has done it again with his latest book, How God Makes Men. Patrick Morley is a common name for anyone who's read books on Biblical manhood in the last decade, and this book is one that every man should read as well.

    Using the stories of Abraham, Joseph, Moses, Gideon, David, Solomon, Nehemiah, Job, Peter, and Paul, Morley creates a book which allows readers to grow closer to the Lord through the examples these disciples lived. One of the things I love about the book is it's emphasis throughout on the grace of God as demonstrated and given through Jesus. While there are plenty of instances where the book gives very specific (and biblical) calls for action on our part, it is always in response to what God does first. Morley makes it clear that God doesn't only use "perfect" men to do his work, but rather meets us where we are at and then moves us to where He wants us to be - and the only thing we need is a willing and surrendered heart.

    Speaking of the word surrender, one of my "aha's" in the book was his distinction and explanation of the difference between the words "commitment" and "surrender", and his observation that many Americans view their relationship with Christ as one of commitment rather than surrender. But what Jesus calls us to is not commitment - where everything rests on us - but rather surrender, where everything depends on him.

    At the climax of the book Morley highlights how men mentoring men can have a profound impact on families, churches, and communities. He doesn't do this is a chauvinistic way, and neither does he dismiss the roll of women, he simply points out the importance of how God wants to use men to reach the hurting and the lost. In fact, I truly believe the vast majority of the book is not specific to "men" but rather to followers of Jesus regardless of gender; the exception to that is some very specific instruction regarding the importance and impact men have in the lives of their families and society in general.

    To reinforce how much I thought of the book, I actually shared an entire chapter with the leadership team from my church - something I've never done before. Morley's emphasis on discipleship, particularly men's discipleship, is demonstrated throughout the book. I truly believe if what he highlights from scripture were actually put into practice we would see a transformation in our churches and communities. Morley preaches servant leadership throughout the book, of living a life surrendered to the King of Kings and reaching out to serve and meet the needs of those around us. Throughout the book he also weaves multiple scriptural references, and none of them were taken out of context.

    If you'd like to examine a free copy of the first chapter, visit this link.

    Overall, I'm giving this book a 5/5 stars - meaning I highly recommend the book. For the record, I did receive a free copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest, though not necessarily favorable, review.
