Publishers Description In his phenomenally successful The Man in the Mirror, award-winning author Patrick Morley took men for a close-up on crucial aspects of their manhood and challenged them to establish wise priorities in life. In Seven Seasons of the Man in the Mirror, Morley shifts the focus to wide-angle. Looking at the broad sweep of life itself, he helps men determine where they are, where they re headed, and how to get there. Drawing on the lessons of his own life and wisdom from the Bible, Morley presents hard-won perspectives on the seven seasons of Reflection, Building, Crisis, Renewal, Rebuilding, Suffering, and Success--and in so doing, addresses men s deep longing for direction and purpose. With candor and passion, he speaks to issues every man must face. He illustrates them with true, modern-life stories. And he presents meaty questions for men to chew on and decisions for them to act on. This penetrating, richly encouraging book will help men turn from empty pursuits to the joy, passion, and eternal satisfaction of manhood s highest purpose."

Help for Navigating the Season's of a Man's Life Dec 30, 2005
I found Morley's book to be exceptionally well written and full of substantive, easy-to-understand, and useful-for-living insight for men based on a solid Biblical foundation.
The book examines many practical and periodic aspects of how we tend to think about life and its many challenges. Morely offers an excellent framework for thinking about where God is leading you and how His plan works in your life. This is challenging and useful stuff. For example, have you ever found yourself pondering a career decision and reading "What Color is My Parachute" only to be left wondering what God's part is in all this? Morley points to some answers that may help. Morley has a nice way of introducing a few memorable phrases that helpf in applying these insights on a day-to-day basis such as, " there is a difference between a Good Idea and a God Idea", and "focusing on being used instead of being something".
The bottom line is that this is a highly practical book for Christian men or men investigating the virtues of a Christian life. It challenges us to let God become the center of our world-view rather than the many alternatives our culture offers in His place.
If you are a man who liked Warren's very popular "The Purpose Driven Life" and wanted some additional day-to-day application then this book may fit the bill.
To women I highly recommended this book as a gift to the men in your life and to checkout Morley's book for women and couples in his very successful "Man in the Mirror" Library.
