About this title

Synopsis:

In Patrick Morley's true sequel to The Man in the Mirror a man is taken beyond the day-to-day problems he faces and is confronted with seven major seasons of life that can make him or break him. The softcover edition includes a leader's guide for small groups.

From the Publisher:

Now in softcover--Patrick Morley's powerful and uplifting insights into the passages of manhood In his phenomenally successful first book, The Man in the Mirror, award-winning author Patrick Morley took men for a close-up on crucial aspects of their manhood and challenged them to establish wise priorities in life. In his ensuing book, The Seven Seasons of a Man's Life, Morley shifts the perspective to wide-angle. Looking at the broad sweep of life itself, he gives men a view of its landscape that can help them determine where they are, where they're headed, and how to get there. While writing this book I have constantly asked myself, What can I offer you that has cost me a great price?' says Morley to his readers. With that in mind, he presents his hard-won perspectives on the seven seasons of Reflection, Building, Crisis, Renewal, Rebuilding, Suffering, and Success--and in so doing, addresses men's deep longing for direction and purpose. In chapters such as . . . Wounded Warriors: Men Under Pressure Building a Career Building Our Families and Wives Burnout Defining Moments Restoring Relationships Three Private Spiritual Disciplines Four Consoling Truths About Suffering The Four Attitudes of Successful Men . . . Morley details with candor, simplicity, and passion the issues every man must face. He illustrates them with stories from his own life and the lives of other modern-day men. And he presents meaty questions for men to chew on and decisions for them to act upon. For men who want to move beyond their weakness and fear to the expectation and hope of a life fully committed to Christ--who want to make their lives count for something bigger and more lasting than themselves--The Seven Seasons of a Man's Life will strike a deep, resounding chord. Complete with a leader's guide for those who want to conduct a small-group study, this penetrating and richly encouraging book will help men turn from empty pursuits and vain conquests to the joy, passion, and eternal satisfaction of manhood's highest purpose.
