In 7 Men and the Secret of Their Greatness, Eric Metaxas, New York Times bestselling author of Bonhoeffer, 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, 7 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 in this book 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 you to a more elevated walk and lifestyle, one that embodies the gospel in the world around us.
