Man Alive by Patrick Morley
Men seek meaning to life. They need to be assured that they make a difference. Also men need fellowship of other men to develop completely into what God has meant for them to be. They also need to be grounded in the word of God.
In this book by Morley 7 primal needs are discussed that when met can help develop a powerful spiritual life..
Men are complicated creatures and this book helps peel back some areas that need to be addressed after that man becomes a believer. Not that the needs are not there before just now they can be met in a more complete way.
Morley devotes eight chapters to the basic needs he has observed men to have. At the end of each chapter he presents reflection and discussion questions for those who are using it in small groups.

He starts out with a story of bravery at the
