Publisher's Summary

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? 

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 listeners to a more elevated walk and lifestyle, one that embodies the gospel in the world around us.

For Such A Time As This

Eric Metaxas, as he did with "Bonhoeffer" and "If You can Keep It" among others, knocks it out of the park here. "Seven Men" is the story of seven truly masculine Christian men, who stood strong in their respective ages against all kinds of injustices. Two, Eric Liddell and Bonhoeffer, were martyrs. The others suffered all kinds of injustices but felt they were born for specific purposes. How inspiring for the world today. For those of us here are called to be a light in this very dark world. Tom Parks's narration is exceptional. His pacing is even and extremely consistent.

Excellent mini biographies!

I read this book after reading another of Eric Metaxas’s books Bonhoeffer. I think I enjoyed this one even more than the other. I really like this style of brief biography highlighting the best of us. Highly recommend!

A higher calling

Metakas invites us into the lives of some extraordinary World Changers. May we emulate the character and integrity of the men portrayed in this work.

Life changing and impassioned content for anyone

I could hardly stop listening to the lives of these men even though familiar to me. Please make them and their lives part of the way you live.
