"The world cries for men who are strong: strong in conviction, strong to lead, to stand, to suffer...glad to shoulder the burden of manliness." In The Mark of a Man, respected author Elisabeth Elliot examines the many characteristics of manhood that were exemplified in the life of Christ. Jesus's life demonstrated the distinctive traits of responsibility, sacrifice, courage, obedience, initiative, forgiveness, and endurance. Men who seek to follow him must walk the same path. Written as advice to Elliot's nephew, this book unabashedly affirms the ways men and women are equal and the ways in which they are distinctly different. It will be a guide to both men and women on understanding the unique ways that men can stand strong in their divinely appointed roles.
