All Men Are Desperate Whether They Admit It or Not is a book about men for men that takes us on a three part journey through our lives. The Journey Into Desperate Places, Part One, examines the lives of five men - an addict, a prisoner, a rich man, a pastor, and a businessman. First we examine common denominators that exist between their lives and ours. Then we look at the 'roads' that took them to their desperate places as a result of bad decisions. We close out this first part by looking at 'toll roads' in a new light. There are two - My Way and God's Way. Both lead to the foot of the cross of Christ, which takes us to Part Two of the book, The Journey Through the Cross.
Here we sit in on two trials - (1) the trial of mankind and (2) your trial before God. We learn the desperation of God through the messages and meanings of the Cross, perhaps the most feared implement of death ever created. Finally, we arrive at a crisis of decision. The decision we make either leaves us in a desperate place - sitting at the foot of the Cross - or it leads us 'through the Cross' to the special place God has waiting for you. It is here He encourages and equips us for the Journey Home, Part Three.
This final part is subtitled, The Call to Desperate Living. We revisit that amazing transformation process of the caterpillar to a butterfly and compare each step with the work God does in the lives of Christian men who submit to His will and lay ours aside. We drill down on lessons we learn from that process. We examine five 'evidences' that provide proof that a man is committed to living desperately. Finally, we revisit the five men with whom the book began and see how their lives turned out.
Each chapter contains questions that challenge the reader and cause him to consider each lesson relative to his own life. This section also facilitates small group discussion. The book closes with a challenge to all men that "your life matters to God" and provides an outline to develop a 'Mini-plan for Desperate Living'.
