11/19/09 Update: Almost 3 months have passed since I wrote my initial review and I still can't say enough about this book and the principles taught of living heroically - Upward, Inward, Outward. Thanks Derwin and Vicki for allowing the Holy Spirit to work through you in the writing of this book.
God Bless you,
Derwin Gray not only writes this heroic message - he lives it! For over ten years I have watched his authentic life and passionate Biblical teaching infuse Spiritual courage into the hearts of men who had grown numb in a culture that is filled with disappointment and disillusion. Derwin challenges men to become a hero while drawing them closer to the Hero heart of God!
This book is for the man who is willing to fight for the life he was created to live. I'll also be recommending to every woman I know who longs to understand and influence the heart of her man - whether it be husband, son, brother or father - with God's heroic dream for his life!

Men are made by God to be heroes, so why is there a failure in our culture to live like it? Hero is divided up into three sections: The upward journey, the inward journey and the outward journey. Gray shares about his difficult and painful childhood in San Antonio to the excitement of playing for the NFL. Gray has the gift of weaving his testimony with a strong emphasis on scripture to show how we can as every day people can become heroes. This is a practical read for readers of all ages.
As a mother raising three boys, I believe this book was great. Unfortunately society plays down the role of manhood and Derwin Gray does a beautiful job helping readers see what being a man of God looks like.
