I just finished reading a new book called Man Alive by Patrick Morley. Morley is know for his book The Man in the Mirror, which has sold around three million copies, and for leading a weekly bible study that reaches over 5,000 men called The Man in the Mirror Bible Study.
Man Alive is a book relating to helping men find their God given purpose in life. It’s about pushing men to live a life outside of mediocrity, one where we are not just going about days half alive, or just existing. Morley’s intention in this book is to help men answer questions, about themselves, their families, and God.
I really thought Man Alive was an easy book to read. It is thought provoking, yet not wordy. It is setup well, explaining major problems in many men’s lives with solutions to help solve those problems. Each chapter ended with questions that, if one were to take the time to answer, would help a man examine himself. Even though each chapter is about 20 – 25 pages, they feel short and straight to the point, something I believe most men can relate with.
Overall this is a great book for men. I would definitely recommend it if you are seeking answers to questions in your life like:
– I don’t feel like God cares about me personally – why?
– Why are my most important relationships not working?
– Where do these destructive behaviors of mine come from?
– How can I live a life that will make a difference in the world?
I received this book for free to review from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers. If you would like your own copy I suggest Amazon.
