WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A MAN

Raising up men has never been easy, but today is seems particularly tough.  The young and old need heroes to embody the eternal qualities of manhood: honor, duty, valor, and integrity.  InThe Book of Man, William J.

Using profiles, stories, letters, poems, essays, historical vignettes, and myths to bring his subject to life, The Book of Man defines what a man should be, how he should live, and to what he should aspire in several key areas of life: war, work, leisure, and more.  "Whether we take up the sword, the plow, the ball, the gavel, our children, or our Bibles," says Bennett, "we must always do it like the men we are called to be."The Book of Man shows how.
