______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Sounds crazy, right? But Jesus spoke of a narrow road that leads to life. So if there’s a road, why wouldn’t there be a map?

That’s the premise of my new book, “The Map: The Way of All Great Men.”

There is a map to manhood, embedded in the Gospel of Matthew. It’s a pattern of masculine development that shows up again and again in the lives of the men of scripture. Those who followed the map accomplished great things. But those who ignored it met with destruction.

So why do we need this map? Think of the ridiculous way we “make disciples” in the church today. We throw random Bible lessons at men, hoping it will change their lives. Tell me, would you train a soldier with random military exercises? Or a doctor with random medical procedures? Or a scholar with random classes? Of course not. Instead, you would place each of these men on an accepted training path – a path that had created thousands of expert soldiers, doctors and scholars.

The Bible shows us the ancient training path for male disciples. It’s the path that every great man has walked. Any other path leads to boredom, disengagment and ultimately, personal destruction.

Meet David Murrow

David Murrow founded Church for Men in 2005.  Murrow is not a pastor, professor or theologian.  He’s just a guy in the pews who noticed a disturbing trend: churches are losing their men and boys.  So he wrote a book titled Why Men Hate Going to Church, which became an instant Christian bestseller, with more than 100,000 copies in print. His efforts have spawned articles in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and the Chicago Tribune, to name a few.  You may have seen him on PBS, the NBC Nightly News, or the Fox News Channel talking about the gender gap.

David Murrow has walked four distinct career paths: television producer, book author, professional speaker and government spokesperson.

Media producer: David Murrow has produced some 800 television commercials, and more than 100 TV specials and programs, mostly in Alaska. He’s contributed material to Discovery Channel, NBC, ABC, CBS, Food Network, Travel Channel, Dr. Phil, The Miss America Pageant and many others. He’s produced dozens of political commercials beginning in the mid-1980s.

Book Author: David is the author of three books: Why Men Hate Going to Church (2005); How Women Help Men Find God (2008) and The Map: The Way of All Great Men (2010). His books has been reviewed in newspapers such as the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, the New York Times and many others. He’s spoken about the gender gap on the NBC Nightly News, Fox News Channel and PBS.

Speaker: In conjunction with his book, Murrow has spoken to groups as large as 3000 people in venues all over the world. He’s been a trainer for Promise Keepers. He’s conducted many men’s retreats and rallies. He has spoken in churches of 150 to 15,000 members.
