Among the men included are: Esau, Joseph, Moses, Joshua, Boaz, David, Solomon, Job, Isaiah, Daniel, Hosea, The Centurion, Peter, Luke, the Good Samaritan, The Prodigal's Father, The Tax Collector, Zacchaeus, Andrew, John, The Jailer, Paul, and Jesus. Of related interest: She is Worthy.

"Showing compassion is not something that is often thought of as being strong, but it is . When men are strong in heart, they have the ability to show compassion. Although the compassion they show may be mistaken for weakness or softness, it is actually a sign of true strength. Men who have the ability to show compassion are able to fully experience all of life's emotions. They know joy and sorrow and they can give hugs and shed tears." --from the Introduction
