Whether you've met every objective you've set for yourself, are still striving to achieve your dreams, or have never written down a goal, many men find themselves thinking with regard to their lives, "There must be more ..."

Author and men's ministry leader Patrick Morley believes there's much more for men. The subtitle of his latest book says just what: "Transforming your seven primal needs into a powerful spiritual life."

In "Man Alive," published by Multnomah Books, you get a glimpse of the heart of a man who has been ministering to other men for decades. This book reads like Morley's personal notes of what he has witnessed thousands of men wrestling with over the years. Then he engages the reader in clear, simple, and straightforward conversation about a handful of these issues, with the intent of providing guidance about each need that will lead men to a transformed, thriving life.

"I'm going to show you how God has provided ways for you to transform that raw, restless energy you feel into a powerful spiritual life, " Morley writes.

To do that, Morley shares real stories --- including some of his own --- to identify a handful of basic needs he believes most men wrestle with, fail at, and as a result, find themselves feeling half alive. But with every identified need, Morley lays out steps any man can take to meet those needs and push forward to building the life God has intended for them.

Along the way, Morley relates to his readers like an understanding buddy, keeps the conversation practical, dishes out generous doses of encouragement, and provides concise direction with just enough challenge to make this book more than an intellectual exercise for men.

If you find yourself restless and thinking there must be more to your life than what there currently is, "Man Alive" just might be the quick read that helps you discover that there is, indeed, much more!
