Publisher's Description

A map, written in code and hidden in the gospel of Matthew, reveals a truth so explosive it could rock the foundations of Christianity—or lead to its rebirth.

A cleric appears out of the rain-spattered darkness, bearing a mysterious message: A long-lost map with the power to transform men is on the verge of being discovered. Thrown headlong into a global chase, author David Murrow must race to find the map before it falls into the wrong hands and disappears forever.

The Map, which  begins as an action thriller and then transitions into a modern-day parable, reveals the path every great man – including Christ himself – has walked.

In this dynamic follow-up to the best-selling Why Men Hate Going to Church, Murrow cleverly translates the masculine spiritual life into an actual, ink-on-paper map. Then he shows men where to find the map in the New Testament and how to walk its ancient paths today.

    The Map is a good read. I enjoyed the novel portion, which helps depict David's premise. Then you get a clear and simple unfolding of what the ‘map' is all about. I've worked in men's ministry for more than two decades and have seen the shortcoming of the traditional approach to the ministry. David does an excellent job identifying the deep need for men to be ‘called' to a mission bigger and harder than expected. For too long, men have been called to the easy and passive. Men long for the respect of being called for what's difficult and do something significant. For years I've wondered if there is a path of spiritual maturation for men? Yes, and The Map lays it out in understandable terms (with visuals, the map!) It is simple enough that once understood, a guy can outline it to another man in three minutes and sketch it on the back of napkin, even if all he can draw are stick figures. The book offers all of this and some edgy idea's regarding Sunday morning attendance and how to call men to get involved. I give it two thumbs up. You'll need both, so you can think outside the box and then kick the sides out and lead a few brave men to go with you. Thanks David.

    The Map: The Way of All Great Men, though more intended for a male audience, was a very interesting read. This book was written by David Murrow who is also the author of the popular book, Why Men Hate Going to Church. At first I just thought this was some sort of book on a man's personal experience. Then the story started to feel a bit like the movie "National Treasure". Instead of looking for clues on the back of the Declaration of Independence though, the code for this "map" was hidden through out the book of Matthew in the Bible. It quickly became quite suspenseful and by the time I was done reading it I told my husband he needed to read it as well. At first he dragged his feet but then he could not put the book down and even ended up passing along to a friend. Once the thrilling story part of this book ends the "real life" message is discussed. This part of the book is definitely for the male readers. The author discuss the "path every great man - including Christ himself - has walked". This book really gives you a lot to think about and I also enjoyed the writing style of this author. If there is a guy on your Christmas list that you are still looking for a gift for, check out this book, he will thank you for it later.

    David Murrow's book The Map is a must read for every Christian man. It is a book where fiction and non-fiction are fused in to this seamless attention grabbing story. The story is in two parts, the first part is a fictional journey in which there is a fun spy story with lots of interesting parables that introduces the second half of the book. It is not a book that is age specific but can be enjoyed by both young and old. David Murrow in this book brings the Bible into a practical everyday understanding. It reveals a long-ignored life pattern found in the Gospel of Matthew, thus book can help you not only in walk of faith but in dealing with others as a leader, for men and women. I have enjoyed this book and would encourage everyone to go get a copy, if not for yourself the n for a friend or family member. Shalom, Maranatha.

    When I read that David Murrows new book was part fiction, I wasnt sure what to expect. I actually found myself trying to guess where the storyline would go next and at the same time trying to figure out if David was actually telling a story or relating something in his life. Although it became clear soon that it was a story, I found it entertaining and could see there was realism mixed in that kept the storyline from drifting off too far. It was clear that the three journeys were the central teaching point, but the storyline got me thinking about how it all fit together. My teenage son also enjoyed the storyline.When David starts the section on the three journeys, I was not totally convinced that there was a hidden map in the gospel of Matthew. I did find the way he uses three journeys to bring together the various qualities of Christ made a lot of sense. It really addresses a major issue in spiritual growth: change. Although men may like to settle into a groove, the reality is that a man following the leading of the Spirit must embrace the changes God has for his life. The three journeys go beyond a simple principle of change to give men the map of how the events of life have a purpose that are strategic. I totally agree that the first journey must involve submission to Gods plan and ways. Without that, a man will likely have problems in his journey of strength. The journey of strength that David proposes includes many issues rarely considered by men or considered ungodly. While submission continues, a man on the journey of strength gives a more complete reflection of Christ and thats huge. Instead of embracing the worlds retirement philosophy, a man who transitions to the journey of sacrifice finishes strong and continues to make a difference in those around him. I think this book is a fine combination of fiction and instruction that blends well and should catch and maintain the interest and attention of readers.

    As a 40 year old man who has been...back..in church now for 11 years, I found myself over the past 5 years wondering...is there more to this than just hugging and being friendly all the time? Chapter 20 sounds like I wrote it. I would bet that 99% of guys that read it will read Chapter 20 and feel the same way. This book has inspired me to become even more involved with the mens group at my church and to explore the scriptures even deeper than I'd thought. Let's just say, it's given me the direction I've been looking for for about 5 years! And isn't that what a map does best?
