Publisher's 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 the reader to a more elevated walk and lifestyle, one that embodies the gospel in the world around us.

    These brief examinations of lives lived to their fullest are examples that men (and women) in this age should look to in order to stand against a culture of selfishness and comfort-seeking. Eric Metaxas has a very enjoyable writing style and brings out the power of God in these men's lives. All men Christian or not will be influenced by this work.

    I had a friend recommend this book, so I ordered it. I found it enjoyable to read and inspirational. At a time when courage is so rare, the biographies about the courage of these seven men challenged me to be more courageous and stand for truth.

    I have a wonderful book to review today: 7 Men and the Secret of Their Greatness by Eric Metaxas. My first experience with Eric Metaxas was a children’s book he wrote about Squanto, the Indian who helped the Pilgrims survive in the new year. He revealed what most historians leave out today about this amazing man. The next time I heard about him was on the Veggie Tale’s DVD about Esther. It’s obvious that Metaxas has an incredible ability to bring to life the great people of history. And he has absolutely done that with his new book 7 Men and the Secret of Their Greatness.

    Metaxas spends one chapter with each of these men: George Washington, William Wilberforce, Eric Liddell, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Jackie Robinson, John Paul II, and Charles Colson. I was riveted reading about these men and aspects of their lives I had never heard before. I loved learning about how their great faith in God got them through extraordinarily difficult circumstances–leading the American army in war, fighting against powerful men to end the slave trade, living in a Japanese concentration camp in China, hoping to survive a German concentration camp after plotting to assassinate the evil Hitler, holding his tongue against blatant racism so he could pave the way for future African Americans to integrate into American society, hiding his studying to be a priest while under German occupation during the war, and surviving prison while serving a sentence for breaking the law and then finding numerous ways to help prisoners for the rest of his life.

    Each chapter had enough that I really felt like I was beginning to know the person, but not a full biography. Metaxas has written full books about both William Wilberforce and Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

    I was so inspired by these seven great Christian men. They weren’t perfect–far from it in fact–but they all had strong courage and perseverance which came through their relationship with Jesus Christ. I am now excited to meet them all in heaven one day!

    (I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through Booksneeze in order to write this honest review.)
