Heroes and role models have always been essential for inspiring our lives and shaping the world. But in the last few decades, the need for men of valor and integrity is more vital than ever.
Metaxas restores a sense of the heroic in the compelling profiles of seven extraordinary men:
- Martin Luther
- George Whitefield
- General William Booth
- George Washington Carver
- Sergeant Alvin York
- Alexander Solzhenitsyn
- Billy Graham
Becoming acquainted with these seven heroes cannot fail to make your life immeasurably richer. Each man demonstrates particular qualities: the courage to surrender themselves to a higher purpose and the willingness to give away something dear to them for the good of others.
With vitality and warmth, Metaxas draws electrifying insights for our daily lives from the inexhaustible richness of history. Inevitably inspiring, this anthology reminds us that certain qualities are worthy of emulationnow more than ever.
Praise for Seven More Men:
"God often uses nobodies from nowhere with nothing to offer but hearts fully surrendered to him and uses them to change the world. Metaxas once again magically and masterfully illustrates God's guiding hand in the lives of seemingly ordinary men to produce great men who use their gifts and opportunities to bring glory to God and to serve others. This book will deeply inspire you to diligently serve God with all your heart, no matter your life's current circumstances, knowing that he knows the plans he has for you."
Kirk Cameron, actor and producer
"Great biographers do more than relay the facts of history; they acquaint us with its authors and inspire us to emulate them. In Seven More Men, Eric Metaxas uses seven short biographies and five hundred years as thread and canvas to produce a magnificent tapestry to not only inform your mind but inspire your heart. These unvarnished stories of faithful endurance, unwavering hope, and costly love are a must-read for our generation."
Christopher Yuan, speaker, Bible professor, and coauthor of Out of a Far Country
