I’ll be honest, it took me awhile to finish this book. While Patrick Morley has some solid thoughts, insights, and help for men in this current age, it’s very surface-level. I have read several other books recently about how the Church can reach out to men, and what being a Christian man is about. *Man Alive*, while it has a good overall message, just falls towards the bottom of the list in books for this demographic.
However, this book would make a great men’s small group discussion book, especially for men who are newer to the faith, struggling with family issues, or just need some spiritual guidance. There are discussion and reflection questions at the end of each chapter, and the book provides some good reflection material/quizzes throughout.
