Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If you think your life is nothing special, take a look at it through God’s eyes.

“What is happening to my life?”

Have you ever honestly asked yourself that question?As young boys, we dreamed of being pilots, firefighters, doctors, and cowboys. Now we’re older, with a wonderful wife and kids, as well as a mortgage, a minivan, and a fulfilling but not so glamourous job. What happened? All the dreams that once inspired us have evaporated into traffic jams, computer screens, bills, and deadlines. Why is life so ordinary?

The revealing truth is that God chooses “ordinary,” faithful men to do His most important work--regular guys like Peter the fisherman, David the shepherd, Stephen the waiter, Gideon the farmer, Paul the tentmaker, and even Jesus the carpenter. In this engaging book, Troy Meeder blends stories about biblical characters and contemporary men to show that an “average-Joe” life, an “ordinary” existence, shapes a man’s integrity, moral stability, resolve, and strength.

Being a trustworthy husband, a loving father, a steady worker, and a man of unwavering character is the highest and noblest calling. The world desperately needs an army of “average Joes.” Like you.

Includes a discussion guide for use by men’s groups.
