What makes a person truly great? Is it only what they've done? Their work and accomplishments? Perhaps, as Eric Metaxas discusses in his newest volume 7 Men and the Secret of Their Greatness, it's often what they don't do that makes them worthy of remembrance.
For instance, when the newly founded United States wantedto make George Washington it's new king, he refused, or Jackie Robinson, one of the most talented baseball players of his time, surrendered his right to fight back against racists, or when Chuck Colson volunteered to go to prison when he didn't have to. These men and the four more who are profiled--Eric Liddell, John Paul II, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and William Wilberforce, all lived their lives for a greaterpurpose, laying down their comfort and ambitions to follow what they believed was right.
In 7 Men you'll learn more about these remarkable men and the faith that guided each of them. In a day when character often takes a backseat, their stories will enrich your life, and show you what's possible when oneperson chooses to follow the path of humility. Paperback.

In Seven Men, New York Times bestselling author Eric Metaxas presents seven exquisitely crafted short portraits of widely knownbut not well understoodChristian 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. This book answers questions like:
- 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?
- And how can you stand 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 profiledGeorge Washington, William Wilberforce, Eric Liddell, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Jackie Robinson, John Paul II, and Charles Colsoncall the reader to a more elevated walk and lifestyle, one that embodies the gospel in the world around us.
