Only a Loser Would Go on a Journey Without “The Map”

 Here is my second book review for booksneeze…

Only a simpleton would try to go on a journey without a map; yet many of us take the most important journey of all with no direction–the journey of life. The Map, the Way of All Great Men by David Murrow tackles this lack of direction with a work of fiction that pulls the reader into Murrow’s world. One can feel, taste and smell the events as they come at him.

The first chapter “Out of the Black” plunges the reader into darkness where the he feels the pain and bewilderment of the main character as though he were there. Never a dull moment, the book is part intrigue,part mystery, part spiritual and at the same time, The Map addresses the stages in the journey of life that all men face. Murrow is dealing particularly with the spiritual aspect of men’s journey to manhood– struggling between toughness, and tenderness— struggling for balance.. Women reading this book will gain  insight into the struggle men have discovering what  manhood actually is. Women will gain a better understanding of how to approach the men in their lives with support during the ongoing “manhood struggle” throughout life.  This is a great followup to Murrow’s book Why Men Hate Going to Church. This is not your usual spiritual growth and insight book. This is a rollercoaster ride to a better understanding of what drives and motivates men in life which helps both men and women in  relating to each other and you won’t go to sleep reading it!
