In his 2012 book, "Man Alive", Patrick Morley sets out to impact several of the most common issues facing men. Using tough man lingo that sounds a little more "manly" than something like 7 Realities, Morley calls these the "7 Primal Needs". Over the course of the book, he outlines how these 7 Primal Needs will radically change the life of a Christian man.To set the stage for these Primal Needs, Morley begins with a story that speaks to the inner hero within every man. He speaks of a hero in the ashes of the World Trade Center. And with that he sets in motion his quest for that "restless energy that's different from women". His call is simple - to call men out of the lukewarm, stagnant, and defeated lives that are all too common among Christian men. And readers will be encouraged by his starting point. For Morley, the journey away from stagnation to "Man Alive", Morley immediately turns to the importance of the Word of God in men. And so the quest to become a "Man Alive" is rooted in the Word.But from that foundation, Morley then moves to the fact that every man has a story. He turns to several different examples to exemplify men with powerful stories. The end goal is for men to open up their lives in order to connect with other men. I believe Morley does a good job in this chapter establishing this point.The third chapter might appear to be about earthly father relationships and the joys/struggles of those relationships, but the key focus is on our relationship with our Heavenly Father. Morley utilizes that earthly father relationship to point to our Heavenly Father, but he doesn't stay on the first for very long. This chapter is all about how the "Man Alive" focuses rightly on his Heavenly Father.
