A beloved classic from Barbara Delinsky, More Than Friends is a powerful and unforgettable story of friendship, love, and forgiveness, emotionally vibrant and populated with truly memorable characters. “A first-rate storyteller” (Boston Globe) whose New York Times bestselling novels include Suddenly, A Woman Betrayed, and The Passions of Chelsea Kane, Delinsky proves once again how well she, “knows the human heart and its immense capacity to love and to believe” (Washington Observer-Reporter).
Written in a beautiful and engaging style, Seven Men addresses what it means (or should mean) to be a man today, at a time when media and popular culture present images of masculinity that are not the picture presented in Scripture and historic civil life. What does it take to be a true exemplar as a father, brother, husband, leader, coach, counselor, change agent, and wise man? What does it mean to stand for honesty, courage, and charity, especially at times when the culture and the world run counter to those values?Each of the seven biographies represents the life of a man who experienced the struggles and challenges to be strong in the face of forces and circumstances that would have destroyed the resolve of lesser men. Each of the seven men profiled—George Washington, William Wilberforce, Eric Liddell, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Jackie Robinson, John Paul II, and Charles Colson—call the reader to a more elevated walk and lifestyle, one that embodies the gospel in the world around us.
