Overview

A personal and affirming look at what gives a man the greatest sense of meaning and dignity in the eyes of God. When surgeons removed Dave Dravecky's left arm in 1991, cancer took more from him than just a limb. It also stripped him of his career as a star pitcher for the San Francisco Giants, together with the sense of identity and worth he derived from it. Moreover, it propelled Dave on a journey he would have chosen not to take — a grueling search for answers to questions every man must face: What gives a man identity and value? Does his worth hinge on his performance? His family? His career? Does his value disappear when he can't produce? Or is a man's merit deeper than what he has and does? The Worth of a Man is a penetrating look at what defines the true value of men. Turning to the Bible, Dave Dravecky uncovers foundations of highly practical perspective on the things that matter most to men: their occupations, friendship, families, successes and setbacks, the way they communicate, and the values they hold.
