Gathering support from the writings of noted authors and social commentators, both Christian and secular, Simmons pointedly reminds us that every man will at some point in life suffer his own trials. No one is bullet proof. The challenges of life and, yes, even the tragedies offer potential for great good. In these struggles, Simmons argues, we discover the potential to see our lives transformed as men.
