Seven men that grappled with tough choices in their attempts to further the progress of others while seemingly deferring their own possibilities of individual greatness in other areas. Good ideas to consider.

While I choose not to follow any particular religion, I do have a passion for volunteerism, social justice and work hard to do the right thing. I found this book fascinating as each of the men featured grappled with their consciences and ultimately made difficult choices that improved the lives of so many. Each of the men drew upon his faith and the support of others for guidance. Even if you do not identify with any religious philosophy, you will find this fascinating and food for thought...what does cause some people to do what others will not do?

Bite sized biographies of seven men who did the brave thing, so they would be thought of as brave, but because they lived what they believed regardless of the personal cost. So good!

God's idea of manhood...has nothing to do with the two false ideas of either being macho or being emasculated....God's idea of making men strong was so that they would use that strength to protect women and children and anyone else. There's something heroic in that. Male strength is a gift from God, and like all gifts from God, it's always and everywhere meant to be used to bless others.
