Robert Lewis, founder of Mens Fraternity
"I believe that men are under attack in our culture. Television and other media feed us a steady stream of weak, complacent menbut thats not the kind of man you see in Scripture! All through the Bible, we see stories of bold and brash men who followed Gods 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. Its 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 Gods 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. Its 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 knowor dont knowabout God, this captivating book is going to help you grow leaps and bounds in your relationship with Christ.

that are the trademark of Gods man. Pats knowledge and passion to help every man be the person God created him to be makes How God Makes Men a must-read!"
