Society will tell you that the number of Christians in the world is declining. Author Patrick Morley disagrees, but he identifies an increase of a different kind – the number of what he calls “Cultural Christians.”
I just finished reading the 25th anniversary edition of Morley’s “Man in the Mirror.” It’s a faith-based book that has sold more than 3 million copies since its first release in 1989. And it’s a riveting read that takes the uncommon approach of challenging men to live for a different set of values in a materialistic world.
In his book, Morley challenges men to refuse to get caught up in the rat race. This means seeking a life of true significance and purpose, while ignoring the world’s pursuit of more money, possessions and the “wrinkle-free” life.
Morley’s book has encouraged me to lead an “examined life,” which calls me to avoid simply going through the motions. It’s a book that has helped me rethink my priorities and I recommend it for everyone.
