A Spiritual Journey for MenDerek Maul • May 2007
Finally, a book for men's spiritual development that actually starts with Jesus. Not lightly baptized Jungian archetypes. Not secular stereotypes that seek to present Jesus as a "man's man." This is good stuff.
Pastor, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church
Author of The Life You've Always Wanted
What exactly does it mean to be a Christian in today's world? Particularly, what does it mean to be a Christian man in 21st-century American culture?
Derek Maul, an award-winning columnist and men's group leader, explores these questions in Get Real. The emerging 21st-century Christian man is a spiritual adventurer who's unafraid to find strength in community with others, including other men. This man rejects the phony values of society—such as the incessant desire for power, youth, money, cars, gadgets—and finds courage in Jesus' invitation: "Follow me."
Maul delivers straight talk to men about faith, family, and desire for God in bite-size sections. He draws on his own experiences, including stories from his weekly men's group called The Men's Room.
Every man can have a deeper spiritual life. Find out how to follow Jesus and leave a legacy of faith.
A Leader's Guide for a 10-week group study is also available.
