George Washington. William Wilberforce. Eric Liddell. Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Jackie Robinson. Pope John Paul II. Charles W. Colson. These seven men share one vital trait: each one was a Christian, and each one sought to live by Christian principles in ways that dramatically affected theirs and others' lives. Each man receives a short but interesting biography written by Metaxas, whose admiration for these individuals is clear throughout the book as he holds them up as notable examples of character and strength. In the introduction, Metaxas states his desire that this book inspire a generation of listless, lackluster young men to take a note from these historical figures and build lives of moral fortitude; with biographies like these, one can't help but be inspired.

Seven men that grappled with tough choices in their attempts to further the progress of others while seemingly deferring their own possibilities of individual greatness in other areas. Good ideas to consider.

Bite sized biographies of seven men who did the brave thing, so they would be thought of as brave, but because they lived what they believed regardless of the personal cost. So good!

God's idea of manhood...has nothing to do with the two false ideas of either being macho or being emasculated....God's idea of making men strong was so that they would use that strength to protect women and children and anyone else. There's something heroic in that. Male strength is a gift from God, and like all gifts from God, it's always and everywhere meant to be used to bless others.
