"From the time God spoke to me, while God was working on my freedom, He was working on me." --David Gatlin, #13343, former inmate, Parchman, MS Men relate to this book--even those in prison. It strikes a chord, a note of reality with them. Guys who don't usually read books love this one and recommend it to others. Why? Because Richard Simmons "gets it." He understands and identifies the ultimate issue all men face regardless of age, race, or their incarceration. "Men very often define who they are by what they have done with their lives or other external things. And when they do that, they unknowingly set a trap for failure in their personal lives." --Richard Simmons. Simmons has spent many years effectively counseling and leading men, and he understands what they need. In this book he reminds us that every man, at some point in life, suffers misfortune and disappointment. No man is immune. However, the challenges of life offer men the possibility of change. In the midst of struggles, there is the opportunity to see our lives transformed and be truly set free. The True Measure of a Man is encouraging and empowering. It gives you the proper perspective to identify and know your true value and worth. It reveals the freedom you will experience, knowing your purpose in life. This book will change your life...and perhaps, the lives of those you love and care about! This powerful resource has proven to be highly effective in prison ministry as well as in men's discussion groups. "A book for every man of every faith or no faith at all. He'll learn why he doesn't have to live with the guilt, insecurity, and fear that most men experience but often pretend they don't." --Fred Barnes, Executive Editor, The Weekly Standard, and Fox News commentator

From the Author:

We all know in our hearts that there are too many men living alone in their private worlds of self-doubt and fear. Men very often define who they are by what they have done with their lives or other external things. And when they do that, they unknowingly set of trap for failure in their personal lives. The purpose of this book is then, is to help us men realize that if we are going to be healthy, active people, we must come to terms with the reality that we are not masters of the universe. My hope is that everyone who reads this book will better understand themselves, their fears and the forces that drive them; to provide wisdom to you, the reader, on how to live a life that is not determined by what you accomplish or how much money you make. - Richard
