A spiritual guidebook for men highlighting the lives of biblical and contemporary figures as models for those seeking to live extraordinary lives.
We are challenged to live our faith in a world driven by never-ending activity and the attainment of career success. In the midst of all this it is easy for us to lose sight of what we are called to be: persons of faith attentive to the voice of God.
While spiritual writing abounds for women seeking to integrate faith into their lives, few books offer men models for faith-filled living. Yet the Scriptures are replete with examples: Abraham, David, Daniel, Nicodemus and Zacchaeus to name a few. Even in modern times we encounter men who embrace their faith in their daily life, such as Pier Giorgio Frassati, C.S. Lewis and Fr. Michael McGivney. Their stories are examples of men seeking to be faithful to God's call while wrestling with the many challenges of life.
Through gripping accounts and stimulating reflection questions, Being a Man After God's Own Heart challenges men to consider the lives of biblical and historic figures to see how they answered God's call to do extraordinary things. Whether on their own or in small groups, this book will help men discover real ways to integrate faith with everyday life.
