Average Joe: God’s Extraordinary Calling to Ordinary Men by Troy Meeder helps men realize that God has a purpose for their “ordinary” lives. A great book written to help men realize that God’s plan helps shape their integrity, moral stability, resolve, and strength. The book would also be perfect for small group discussion as it includes a study guide for men’s groups.
I found the book to be very appropriate for me, as I sometimes wonder what happened to the dreams I held when I was younger. The book was great at “meeting me where I am,” and offering Biblically based advice and reassurance that everything is part of God’s plan. Divided into three sections and fourteen chapters, the book is also a very easy read.
I would recommend this book to any man who has come to view his life as ordinary. It will provide a great way for you to realize that your life is anything but ordinary. Five stars!
