Book Review - the Map
Sounds like fiction, but it's true. The apostle Matthew embedded a map into his gospel. History's greatest men, including Christ himself, followed this map.
The Map begins as a fictional tale of murder, deception, and greed as three men fight to uncover the most important discovery since the Dead Sea Scrolls. Then, using the tale as a parable, Murrow shows men what the map looks like, where it is found in the Bible, and how to walk its three ancient pathways today:
David Murrow stumbled across the map by accident in 2006. After three years of research and writing, he is ready to reveal it to the world
No matter what you think about the state of masculinity and manhood in the 21st Century the fact is there are fewer men going to Church - and Murrow seeks to address this. He does this in an interesting way, part adventure story, part reflection on that story. It's a good yarn in the first half, and rather than spoil it I will just say that it's worth reading. The Second half is somewhat more patchy - his arguments of what constitute masculinity and femininity have some merit, and critique of the feminisation of the Church hold water but his specifics about 'manly' behaviour I found less useful - rubbing the face of a bully in the dust, and using firearms are much more about Murrow's attitude than a healthy approach to 'manhood', I think.
