    Reviewed by Faith Farrell for Readers' Favorite

    How God Makes Men is a book for the man who is slowly discovering his purpose as one of God's men, and also for the man who has been God's man for a long time and who needs refreshment for his soul. In this book, Patrick Morely uses plain speaking language to communicate Rock-of-Ages eternal truth, the truth that has always guided God's men. This is big stuff we're talking about here; heavy theology made chewable but not watered down. This is the rich, Biblical, meaty truth that strengthens God's men.

    There are thoughts on suffering when it seems like there is no purpose for the pain; thoughts on God's sovereignty and on surrendering control when all you want to do is "fix it" with your own actions. There are thoughts on laying aside your own agenda when it runs contrary to His, and on still believing that he has a purpose for you when it seems that all your work is coming to nothing. This stuff resonates with the man in the trenches. Why would you feel called to start a business to do God's work and then have to close that business due to America's economic recession? Where is God in that? Whether it is fiscal collapse or cancer or a car wreck, how do God's men stay on their feet when the world seems to be caving in around them?

    How God Makes Men is not a book full of platitudes, and not full of easy answers to a man's dilemmas. It is a look at the faithfulness of God in the lives of some great men (Gideon, David, Solomon, Nehemiah, Moses, Abraham, Joseph, Job, Peter and Paul) men who weren't great because they were perfect, but because the LORD was their God. A great spiritual and uplifting read.
