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.
In a decidedly eclectic career, Eric Metaxas has written for VeggieTales, Chuck Colson and the New York Times, three things not ordinarily in the same sentence. He is a best-selling author whose biographies, children’s books and works of popular apologetics have been translated into Albanian, Portuguese, Spanish, Korean and Macedonian.
Eric Metaxas was born in New York City in 1963 and grew up in Danbury, Connecticut, attending the public schools there, and graduated from Yale University. Metaxas’ humour writing was first published in the Atlantic Monthly, and has appeared in The New York Times. Eric’s book and movie reviews, essays and poetry have appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Regeneration Quarterly, Christianity Today, National Review Online, Beliefnet and First Things.
Eric has debated at the Oxford Union, the world’s oldest debating society, and speaks widely on a variety of topics. His no-holds-barred introductions of such figures as US Senator Joseph Lieberman, former Attorney General John Ashcroft, and Rick Warren have made him much sought after as an emcee and moderator. He has moderated debates with Bishop Spong and President Obama’s former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright; and has spoken at the White House, on Capitol Hill, at West Point, Yale, Cornell, Princeton and many other venues, and was this past year the featured speaker at the Lousiana Governor’s Prayer Breakfast in Baton Rouge. In 2007 he was made an Honorary Fellow of the prestigious British-American Project, the only person ever to have been afforded this privilege.
Eric attends Calvary/St. George’s Episcopal Church, and lives in Manhattan, New York, with his wife and daughter.
