Discover the character of Jesus Jan 18, 2007
In his latest book, The Character of a Man, Bruce Marchiano invites men to discover the character of Jesus. In so doing, they may have to get past some long-held misconceptions and traditions about who and what Jesus really is all about. There is a desire to help men grow to be more like Jesus by knowing the Man of all men. There is a definite passion for the Man of the Passion. His preparations to play the role of Jesus have helped Marchiano to gain a greater understanding of Jesus' character. Marchiano is bubbling with excitement to tell what he has discovered. His mind has been affected, but more importantly so has his heart. From Marchiano's heart comes his message to all men: "be a man like Jesus." Marchiano explores deep into the character of Jesus. He shares his knowledge and his discoveries with all of us who desire to learn more. Through biblical research and present-day illustrations Marchiano lays out a clear picture of the character of the Man, Jesus: a Man filled with purpose, passion, humility, gentleness, and integrity. "It's an entirely novel thought for a lot of guys: gentleness is masculine." If being a man is the goal, then Jesus is the model. There is no one with better qualifications to follow. No man ever lived with such purpose, humility, or integrity. Says the author, "Two thousand years ago, Jesus stood as a tower of integrity. His integrity was consummate, astonishing, beyond-the-beyond. It rose in Him as high as the clouds, and his magnificence dominated every darkness that sought to slither about His feet. Can you picture such a tower?" No man gave such respect to women as Jesus. "He worked with women in ministry and healed them through His ministry," points out Marchiano. Now it is our turn to explore for ourselves, to have our minds "blown sky high." The book leads us to discover that Jesus is calling men today to be like Him. At times it may seem to be a difficult and frightening task, but we are reminded that we will not have to go it alone. We have "the ultimate role model" who sets a perfect example for us to follow. Marchiano has revealing the champion of manhood, Jesus. His enthusiasm is evident as he lays a strong foundation for each "Character Trait" and he accomplishes his goal, helping readers reflect on the image of Jesus, the Man. It is an amazing reflection that Bruce shares. "Glory to the Name of Jesus!" "The Character of a Man: Reflecting the Image of Jesus", is a book that men and women of any age will enjoy reading.

The Character of a Man...Another Remarkable Journey!!! Nov 3, 2006
Once again, this accomplished author, actor and speaker leads us to a deeper understanding of the awesomeness of Jesus. Marchiano dusts off those old stereotypical views of Jesus that have been ingrained in our psyches of Jesus as a slight, satiny, soft deity and paints a refreshing view of Jesus as a real man...with the calloused hands of a working man, strong and real. He uncovers the character, the personality, and the masculinity of Jesus! Marchiano reveals the very qualities of Jesus found within Bible scripture and intertwines endearing, personal stories from his own experience thus weaving a story that will have you laughing out loud at times or will leave you weeping over the awesome love he has for Jesus and the love that Jesus has for us all. This book is a wonderful read and it will draw you in and hold you close as each chapter unfolds...much in the same way we imagine the subject of this book drawing us in to Him and holding us close! Many thanks to Bruce Marchiano for taking us on this journey and for allowing us to "fall in love" with Jesus along with you!
Jesus: a "real" Man Nov 1, 2006
In this book, "The Character of a Man", actor and author Bruce Marchiano breathtakingly "reveals" the character of Jesus. Perhaps it takes an actor, not a theologian, to be able to gain rare insight into the character of Jesus - the Man. After all, that's an actor's job - why would He do this?... What would motivate Him?
Mr. Marchiano answers these questions in this easy-to-read book in which he beautifully chronicles the character and masculine personality of Jesus - the Man - who meets perfectly each particular role: excellence, humility, passion, respect for women... and establishes Him as the ultimate male role model!
This book is for everyone - not just men - it could even make a better world! As for me, I feel that Mr. Marchiano is able to "reveal" Jesus better than anyone I've ever read... he's really been blessed with a wonderful gift!!
