A map, written in code and hidden in the gospel of Matthew, reveals a truth so explosive it could rock the foundations of Christianity—or lead to its rebirth. A cleric appears out of the rain-spattered darkness, bearing a mysterious message: a long-lost map with the power to transform men is on the verge of being discovered. Thrown headlong into a global chase, author David Murrow must race to find the map before it falls into the wrong hands and disappears forever. The Map, which begins as an action thriller and then transitions into a modern-day parable, reveals the path every great man—including Christ himself—has walked. In this dynamic follow-up to the best-selling Why Men Hate Going to Church, Murrow cleverly translates the masculine spiritual life into an actual, ink-on-paper map. Then he shows men where to find the map in the New Testament and how to walk its ancient paths today.

David Murrow uses fiction, in Part One, and nonfiction, in Part Two, to recount the story of a map hidden in the biblical book of Matthew. He believes that the Apostle Paul embedded the map and that all great men of history have followed it, even Christ. The map includes three journeys that great men make; these journeys of submission, strength, and sacrifice lead to Christian maturity. Wayne Shepherd guides the listener through the maze of Murrow's "map." His ability to convey complex biblical contradictions with credible explanations is refreshing. However, even Shepherd's absorbing narration can't overcome the feeling that one is listening to two different books. The combination of fiction and nonfiction does not work well.
