About the Author

David Murrow is an award-winning television producer and writer based in Alaska, most recently working for Alaska’s most notable resident, Sarah Palin. The best-selling author of Why Men Hate Going to Church, he is also director of Church for Men, an organization that helps churches connect with men and boys. David and his wife, Gina, have three children. Visit his Web site,

From AudioFile

David Murrow uses fiction, in Part One, and nonfiction, in Part Two, to recount the story of a map hidden in the biblical book of Matthew. He believes that the Apostle Paul embedded the map and that all great men of history have followed it, even Christ. The map includes three journeys that great men make; these journeys of submission, strength, and sacrifice lead to Christian maturity. Wayne Shepherd guides the listener through the maze of Murrow's "map." His ability to convey complex biblical contradictions with credible explanations is refreshing. However, even Shepherd's absorbing narration can't overcome the feeling that one is listening to two different books. The combination of fiction and nonfiction does not work well.

More About the Author

David Murrow is not the kid of guy you'd expect to write books about men and church. He's not a pastor, professor or theologian. He's just a guy in the pews who noticed a disturbing trend: churches are losing their men and boys.

So in 2001, he started doing some research, which led to his first book, Why Men Hate Going to Church. To everyone's surprise, it became an inspirational bestseller, with more than 100,000 copies in print. His efforts have spawned articles in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and the Chicago Tribune, to name a few. You may have seen him on PBS, the NBC Nightly News, or the Fox News Channel talking about Christianity's gender gap.

David was raised in Texas, but has lived in Alaska since 1985. He's a television producer and writer by trade. He's worked for just about every channel on the dial - from ABC to the Travel Channel. One of his specialties is political advertising. In fact, he wrote and produced Sarah Palin's first TV commercial back in 2002.

David has been married to Gina since 1984, and they have three children, two grandchildren and a dachshund that thinks she's a grandchild. To contact David, send an e-mail to:

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
For the countless Men who have become "lost" in church and in life; this book by the author of "Why men hate going to church" could spark the next great revolution, not just in Men's Ministry but possibly lead to a reformation of the Body of Christ itself. That may seem like a staggering claim but that's because you haven't had a chance to read "The Map - The Way of All Great Men".
The first part reads like a Dan Brown type thriller and grabs the attention of the reader from the first page with mysterious encounters, international intrigue and shadowy figures all contributing to the excitement and suspense - very important if you want your book to be read by men. Using this fictional yet gripping approach sets up the reader to be instructed in how to follow the "map"!
It's premise is simple - There is a map, embedded in the Gospel of Matthew, that not only reveals the process that Jesus' life and ministry followed but reveals the key to success in life for all men. David Murrow who among other things, has worked for Sarah Palin, and heads a ministry called the Church for Men, then dissects the three journeys every great man must make through submission, strength and sacrifice and offers practical and down to earth strategies for integrating these ideas into their life. I found this book both readable and rewarding. It certainly invites a paradigm shift in any conscientious reader. For those already familiar with John Eldredge (Wild At Heart) or Stu Weber (Tender Warrior), they will appreciate this book greatly. Unlike many christian books that simply revisit familiar themes - this book I believe charts new territory.

Review - "The Map"

I was sorely disappointed when I finished reading David Murrow's new book. I had so wanted it to be the corrective to his first effort that it seemed to be when I scanned a few pages of a friend's copy.

It has all the elements of the journey he wants to describe, but he keeps cramming them into a structure he "found" while "speed-reading" Matthew, a structure that isn't there, and that is unnecessarily rigid. Even David admits that the three-fold journey he describes isn't really a three-fold journey at all, that the three legs overlap at times (meaning that there are many more than three legs) and that there are really significant elements of Matthew that don't conform to the structure that he's imposed on it.

Still, there is much to be said for his desire to bring "feminine" (his word, not mine) and "masculine" back into balance in the man's journey. It is unfortunate that he wants to eliminate so many of the switch-backs that occur on the road up the mountain. It causes him to do some considerable violence to the structure of Matthew's Gospel, and to overlook the reality that all three of the elements of his journey are actually very masculine. There is nothing feminine about coming under authority (the "submission" portion of his three-part route up the mountain) and acquiring humility. Real humility is just as unnatural for a woman as for a man. The only thing is that many women are conditioned to play "doormat" and so they adopt something that looks like humility, but isn't. For many women the first leg of a journey means acquiring enough sense of self and strength that they have something to lay down in humility!

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Although I am a man, I don't much enjoy the usual books touted for men in church. This one, on the other hand, I very much enjoyed reading. The early part of the book hooked me with its fictional portrayal of searching for a secret Biblical map. Then the author comes clean and admits the story was based on something he'd noticed while skimming the Gospel of Matthew, which he goes on to explain in detail though most of the rest of the book, before returning to his story at the end.

I particularly liked the author's sensible explanation of these contradictions:
"Jesus tells his disciples to sell their cloaks and buy swords (Luke 22:36), yet that same evening he rebukes a disciple for using one (Matthew 26:52. Paul pleads with us to walk in humility and gentleness, but two chapters later he tells us to prepare for battle. Christ told us to love our enemies, yet he was rude to his.

Then there's the granddaddy of them all: the fruit of the Spirit paradox. In Galatians 5, the apostle Paul identifies love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control as the marks of a Spirit-filled believer. But if this is the definitive test of Christian character, Jesus flunks on almost every count!"

Here's another favorite quote:
"If Sunday morning worship services are going to target seekers and young Christians, then we need to excuse the mature from attending them."

Speaking as a man, I would absolutely love to hear a sermon on any of those quotes! Since our church (Willow Creek) and pastor (Bill Hybels) were often mentioned in the book I look forward to discussing these ideas with Bill if the chance ever arises.
