This Hardcover Edition of Seven Men: And the Secret of Their Greatness has been personally Autographed by Eric Metaxas.
Exclusively Made Available at PremiereCollectibles.com.
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?

Excellent book showcasing some great examples of human beings (sure they're all men, but the author's also written a book "Seven Women" with a free preview at the back of this one). I had been interested a while back in the author's biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, but wasn't ready to read a whole book on him (I must be real lazy!). So when I saw this book, with a smaller version of Bonheoeffer's life, as well as other great men, I went for it! -R. ALLEN
Maybe at least 1-star for each man, and then some! The world needs heroes and Metaxas gives us a bunch here to consider. The world needs mentors and Metaxas takes on the role second-handedly by presenting these men as mentors we can emulate. I was surprised by his presentation on each of these men, beginning with George Washington. These were people I thought I knew. Metaxas narrated (in audiobook format) exciting unknown facts about each of them by which he built up their character beyond that which might have been know by most people about them. -Amazon Customer
