Full Product Description
Eric Metaxes, author of several bestselling biographies (Bonhoeffer, Wilberforce) has collected seven men that have practically demonstrated what manhood is all about.
What is true manhood? What makes a man in our modern world? It’s easy to get lost in today’s celebrity culture which prides itself on dodgy morals and superficial activities. So where have all the role models gone? Eric has delved into the past to find seven outstanding examples of true manhood:
• George Washington – Founding Father of the United States
• William Willerforce – British Parliament Member & Leader in the Abolishment of Slavery
• Eric Liddell – Missionary & Scottish 400m Runner
• Dietrich Bonhoeffer – German Pastor & Brave Enemy to Hitler’s Regime
• Jackie Robinson – American Baseball Player & Challenger to Racial Segregation
• Pope John Paul II – Reformer, Reconciler & Peacemaker
• Charles W. Colson – One of the Watergate seven & founder of the Prison Fellowship
The expert biographer presents these Christian men in short portraits, illustrating the secret of their greatness to inspire the world changer inside of everyone.
7 Men by Eric Metaxas was published by Thomas Nelson in April 2015 and is our 16071st best seller. The ISBN for 7 Men is 9780718030957.

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.
