Society has simplified men to these species of people who don’t cry, don’t have emotions all they want is sex and their meaning is to make money.
Too many men are suffering in silence. For the sake of looking like a man, they hide their issues, failing to deal with them. In the long run, they hurt other people, especially women and children, they grow up angry, they get lost in addictions, they commit suicide, they beat up others, and they kill.
So how exactly can men be assisted in dealing with their issues? The book “Man In The Mirror” comes in handy for them,because it will help them in dealing with their struggles.
In this review, i will take you through what the book is ,what it talks about ,its cost and finally my thoughts about the book.
Lets get started on this book review:

What It Is
This is a book that helps men understand the person who stares back at them from the glass each morning and know what to do about his twenty-four most difficult problems.
Written by a foremost Christian men’s leader, this powerful book invites men to take a probing look at their identities, relationships, finances, time, temperament, and most important, the means to bring about lasting change.
If life’s demands are constantly pressuring you to run faster and jump higher, this book is for you. It is rich in anecdotes, thought-provoking questions, biblical insights, and featuring focus questions in each chapter suitable for personal or group use.
Patrick Morley (www.maninthemirror.org) is a business leader, speaker, and the best-selling author of twelve books, including The Man in the Mirror, Ten Secrets for the Man in the Mirror, The Seven Seasons of the Man in the Mirror, and Devotions for the Man in the Mirror. He lives with his wife in Orlando, Florida.
With his experience both as a leader and as a speaker promises a good read for you. I think the fact that he is a man too that knows issues that affect men on a daily basis places him in a good position to give facts as they are.
What The Book Talks About.
Lessons from the book:
When your circumstances fail but your character succeeds, you become a model of hope for others.We cannot control our circumstances, but we can control our character.
Many of us have merely added Christ to our lives as another interest in an already busy and otherwise overcrowded schedule. This sort of thinking has watered down the meaning of a personal relationship with Christ. The problem is that we often seek the God we want, but do not know the God who is.
Purposes are threads of continuity that we weave into the long-term view of our lives. Goals come and go, but purposes survive because they are long- term, they pertain to the why we exist part of our lives. They relate to how we perceive the theory of our lives.
God is more interested in the success of our character than the success of our circumstances.
Many of us are busy “doing” but are not keeping our personal relationship with God in tune.The path to significance is bigger than the individual.
Of what earthly value is Christianity if it leaves no indelible mark on one’s lifestyle? It is of no value (in this life) to be Christian if you do not think Christianly–if you do not have a Christian life view.
So if you’re dealing with a nonperforming employee, particularly on issues related to work ethic, I suggest that you begin by asking three questions: Has this employee received a written job description?
Have you published some sort of general, written policy that outlines requirements for practical work issues like starting time, lunch breaks, stopping times, making or receiving personal phone calls, etc.? Does this person understand how you like to receive reports?
C. S. Lewis once said, “A proud man is always looking down on things and people; and, of course, as long as you’re looking down, you can’t see something that’s above you.
Is there any way we can get society right if we don’t first get the church right? If that is true, then is there any way we can get the church right if we don’t first get families right? If that is true, is there any way we can get families right, if we don’t first get marriages right? And if that is true, is there any way we can get marriages right if we don’t get men right?
The author remains confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD” (Psalm 27:13 – 14).
A heart filled with faith, hope, and love leads to a righteous, obedient life.Francis Schaeffer wrote, “A ministry such as teaching the Bible in a college is no higher calling intrinsically than being a businessman or doing something else.
Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.” John 3:3
The fear of God is the reverence we give to God Almighty because He has the power and authority to give us what we do deserve.
We should regard work not just as a platform for ministry—work is ministry, and we are stewards put in charge until Jesus comes back, a fifth column who infiltrate a world stained by sin, acting as salt that preserves the way of Christ and light that leads broken people out of darkness.
