Book Review: Seven Men by Eric Metaxas

Seven Men: And The Secret Of Their Greatness is a collection of bite size biographies on seven of the most influential men who have lived. The common thread that runs through them all is the bravery with which each man stood up for what he believed. None of them were perfect, but each one fought in his own manner for the greater good.


Metaxas tells each story with an irresistible flow that will keep you turning the pages and wishing there was more at the end of each chapter. He is witty and humorous while shedding light on the lessons we can learn from those who have walked before us.

The seven men you will read about are:

  1. George Washington
  2. William Wilberforce
  3. Eric Liddell
  4. Dietrich Bonhoeffer
  5. Jackie Robinson
  6. Pope John Paul II
  7. Charles W. Colson

I highly recommend this book and especially to young men who desire to make a difference in the world. Come and read of the sacrifice and determination of those who already have.

One thought on “Book Review: Seven Men by Eric Metaxas

  1. Eric, I tip my hat to U. I grew up thinking James Dean, Steve McQueen and Paul Newman were real coal guy. James and Steve were trouble Movie Stars who imaged their life on some of their roles they played. Their problems was with themselves. Jackie Robinson was it, “Mr. Cool”! Thank U for sharing Mr. Cool with us. Eric Liddell and Dietrich Bonhoefer are “Mr. Cools”, wish Pope Francis would share their testimony with the Youth. I think it would be a great topic for next World Youth Day. Your writing is simple and full of Love for brotherhood, Brotherhood to Love and Share with each other as other Father’s did in the past. I knew my Father’s real buddies and they seams to have shared. I am still reading and will provide more feedback. I wanted U to know the Book is so great that I purchased 3-ea. One for my co-worker, one for my brother and one for me…, Ave Maria Forever! Norma
