I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The author makes really good points about the need for more good men in the world. There are plenty of bad men who unfortunately leave their mark, the world needs more good men and it all starts at home. While there is not such thing as perfect men it is possible to be a good man. Not only does Baxter talk about the attributes that good men possess (faith, integrity, etc), how to create a good man (good examples, following Christ, etc), but he also shares examples of some good men who made a difference in the world. He includes William Wilberforce who spent 50 years trying to outlaw slavery, Eric Liddell who changes sports during the Olympics so he didn't have to run on Sunday, and Raoul Wallenberg who sacrificed everything to save Hungarian Jews during World War II. After giving brief profiles, Baxter shares what he sees as making them the good men they were and how we can do the same. Then he talks about the best man of all, Jesus Christ, and how he is such an example. A wonderful read that is inspiring for both men and women and a reminder that good men are vitally important.
We are surrounded by GOOD MEN!
And we can use MORE of them!
This book shares the lives of 6 GREAT men.
* Eric Liddell
* William Wilberforce
* Derek Cuthbert
* Paulo Freire
* Raoul Wallenberg
* Dr. David Livingstone
As you will read of each man's life you will learn:
* WHY they are considered great
* WHAT they did that made them great
* HOW you can become more like them.
There is also a chapter on training young boys to become good men.
The final chapter is reserved for THE GREATEST MAN WHO EVER LIVED ~ even JESUS CHRIST. If a man can cultivate Christlike attributes into their own personal lives we truly will have GREAT MEN among us :)
You will be inspired to rise to your greatest potential.
A PERFECT GIFT FOR THE MEN IN YOUR LIFE!
