A map, hidden in the gospel of Matthew, is the key to awakening the sleeping giant in the church-men.
Sounds like fiction, but it's true. The apostle Matthew embedded a map into his gospel. History's greatest men, including Christ himself, followed this map.
The Map begins as a fictional tale of murder, deception, and greed as three men fight to uncover the most important discovery since the Dead Sea Scrolls. Then, using the tale as a parable, Murrow shows men what the map looks like, where it is found in the Bible, and how to walk its three ancient pathways today:
David Murrow stumbled across the map by accident in 2006. After three years of research and writing, he is ready to reveal it to the world.
spoiler alert, the first half of this book reads as if the author is sharing a profound life experience only to reveal that it was in fact fiction. the second half of the book is an odd explanation of a very basic Theory of training men, a topic that the author knows much less about as compared to the research he did in his first book.
It shifted my thinking on Christ and my journey as a man living a life like Christ.
I rank this right up there with other life-changing reading for Christian men like Wild at Heart from John Eldredge. Author does a great job finally explaining the mystery of how Jesus can, in one chapter, be telling his disciples to be kind and gentle and turn the other cheek, then in the next be cleaning out the temple with a whip! The lesson of the three journeys helped me understand the path to becoming all God has created me to be. The first fictional part is necessary, but not quite up to par with the likes of "a Clancey novel." But it serves its purpose well.
