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.

    I enjoyed this book very much. Some chapters meant more to me than others. The chapters on Wilborce & Bonhoeffer were a good overall summary. I had recently read AMAZING GRACE and now I've been reading BONHOEFFER. I discover much more to the story of Eric Liddell (other than the movie "Chariots of Fire>').

    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.
