The MapThe Map:
The Way of All Great Men
By David Murrow (Nelson, 2010)

A map, hidden in the gospel of Matthew, is the key to awakening the sleeping giant in the church—men. Sounds like fiction, but it’s true. The Map begins as a fictional tale of murder, deception and greed as three men fight to uncover the most important discovery since the Dead Sea Scrolls. Then, using the tale as a parable, David Murrow shows men what the map looks like, where it is found in the Bible, and how to walk its three ancient pathways today.
