The Map by David Murrow (Book Review)
Recently BookSneeze, a website/company, sent me a free copy of the book The Map - The Way of All Great Men by David Murrow.
This is Mr. Murrow's second book on the subject of men and church - specifically why men are leaving the church, or are not as involved as they have been in the past.
I have not read the first book, but it did not seem necessary to understand The Map.
The book starts out as a suspense-filled novel. You feel like you are reading Dan Brown's next best-seller. The Map begins by leading us on an adventure with David Murrow (the author) to find a long lost map that will lead men back to Christ and the Church. The first part of the book grabs your attention, and then the second part solidifies the points that Mr. Murrow is trying to make - that men don't go to church because they are not following "the map".
This book definitely got me thinking - and researching - about certain biblical events. It makes you want to go back and study Matthew.
I believe this book is a great weekend read and can help both men and women. Is there a map - yes. What does it tell you? Well, for that you will just have to read the book.
