Man Alive by Patrick Morley

From the author of The Man in the Mirror comes seven primal needs that need to be transformed.

Patrick Morley gives the kind of encouragement that men need. This isn't the kind of feminine-man-book that is so prevalent in the Christian publishing world. This is from a man who has met with thousands of men, knows how we think, talk and what we need.

Morley believes that 90% of Christian men feel stagnant and lead defeated lives. Is this you?

Each chapter deals with a primal man-need:

Not doing life alone
To believe God cares about me personally
To believe life has a purpose
To break free of destructive behaviors
To satisfy the thirst for awe
To love without reservation
To leave the world a better place

As with many Christian "self-help" books, you'll find discussion questions after each chapter intended to keep you thinking. Each chapter has quick and easy steps with fast facts. This is exactly what men need to keep us engaged with a book that might be seen as less-than-manly.

There is also an 8 week DVD study to accompany this book at some point down the road. But I'm guessing the book will be enough for me.

The anecdotes were entertaining and helped create a more full reading experience.
