Overview

In Seven Men, New York Times bestselling author Eric Metaxas presents seven exquisitely crafted 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.

Each of the seven men profiled—George Washington, William Wilberforce, Eric Liddell, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Jackie Robinson, John Paul II, and Charles Colson—call us to a more elevated way of living, one that embodies the gospel in the world around us.

All seven biographies represent 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.

Seven Men asks and answers pressing questions, including:

  • 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?

Written in a beautiful and engaging style, Seven Men addresses what it means 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—encouraging us to think critically, act honorably, and lead by example.

Praise for Seven Men:

"This is a book to read, to read aloud to others, and then read again. In a day when children are growing up stunted because of our diet of empty-headed celebrities and contemptible villains, true heroism and manliness needs special nourishment. Eric Metaxas has done it again, and again we are in his debt."

—Os Guinness, author of A Free People's Suicide

"What is true manhood? And what makes a man in our 21st century? These are vital questions that my friend Eric Metaxas helps us wrestle with in this great new book. In looking back to seven outstanding men of history, Eric helps us understand the essential elements of manhood in any age. This is a superb work—and I highly recommend it."

—The Hon. Gregory W. Slayton, author of national bestseller Be a Better Dad Today
