Because too much of a good thing can pull men away from the even more important things-like family, friends, and church. But there is another way. Men are capable of living with passion and zeal while at the same time remaining balanced and faithful to their most important relationships and priorities. They can learn to run hard and run well, while running after the right things.

Man on the Run contains some insights that are very important to most men. All of us at times let our occupation or our . Zeke hits the nail on the head in Chapter 5 as he delves into the "Performance Story" most men try to live out. I was raised by a coach and a school teacher. All of us at times let our occupation or our hobbies consume us to a degree that is unhealthy in terms of maintaining balance in our lives, particularly as it relates to our families. Zeke Pipher writes informatively about a way to keep things in perspective and to maintain a healthy relationship with our wives and our children. I recommend it highly. Everything could be measured from grades to tackles; my self-worth was based on how high they were.

Maybe you are a hyper-hobbied man. Hobbies and adventurous pursuits are good for the soul, says author Zeke . To do this, men need the help and support of their wives, children, friends, and greater community.

Her face was crimson red when she walked through the door but somehow managed to reach darker and darker shades as she described her husband to me. I learned several new adjectives in the first ten minutes of our time together. At one point, I stopped Susan mid-adjective and asked her, Help me understand the core issue. Does your husband have an addiction? Her face hit an even darker shade of red. Hobbies and adventurous pursuits are good for the soul, says author Zeke Pipher.

  • I was not expecting such a tender and vivid account of what a man's experience is. I bought the book because Zeke and I are Facebook friends. As a fellow author, writing my first book, I know how difficult the journey to publishing is, so I wanted to support him.

    This book was a surprise in many ways:

    *Zeke is an extremely tender and vulnerable writer. Through his description and storytelling abilities I feel like I experienced his life, his family, his struggles, and his accomplishments. There were several stories in the book that brought me to tears.

    *Even though I've been married (to a man) for 25 years, there was still so much Zeke taught me about what lies in a man's heart. My husband is over-committed to his work and doesn't pour enough time into hobbies. Zeke showed me how passionate a man is to experience and conquer his world.

    *As several reviewers have already said, this book is not about telling men to limit themselves and their pursuits. Instead, it is a caution for them to examine many good choices and to commit to the best.

    I don't think you will be dissapointed by this book. As a doctor of ministry, a pastor, a son, a husband, a parent, a sportsman, friend, photographer, and writer Zeke gives both men and women much to consider when it comes to living a life without regret.

  • I ordered two copies of Man on the Run: one for my "man on the run" and one for me.

    Turns out I'm a "woman on the run"--a woman with multiple children (3 boys on the run) and multiple interests. We're all trying to strike the balance between making the most of opportunities and remaining focused on what matters most. Zeke Pipher offers counsel in pursuing and prioritizing both small and large dreams. With wit and wisdom he'll help you regain your bearings if you've been teetering.

    My favorite chapter was entitled "The Cheering Voice." Zeke tells the story of his swim coach--"The Screamer." Though Zeke finished his senior swim season he wrote this about his coach: "What he didn't know is that I would have swum twice as hard for him had he cheered me on. A few "attaboys," and I would have swum the Atlantic Ocean for him."

    In teaching and in parenting I've found this principle true and effective--at least on the occasions when I've applied it well.

    "Man on the Run" is filled with moving true stories as well as some aptly spoken words from the author's wife and children. Without scorning "hobbies" and "pursuits" (he has many!) he kindly points the reader, man or woman, toward healthy prioritization.

  • Last fall I took up a new hobby (this was, of course, before I read the book),black-powder-hunting for whitetail deer in Nebraska. It had always intrigued me, and, last fall my son and I set off, with a close friend and his son, to hunt the late season. Shortly after my 8-year-old-son did his fool-proof deer-call (1 bite on a frozen, miniature, milky-way, followed by four, short grunts on the grunt-tube, then repeat), a mature doe stepped into view. After settling the scope just behind her shoulder and touching off the cold trigger, a large black puff of smoke rose from the gun. As the frigid Nebraska wind blew the smoke away, I eagerly watched to see if the deer would be running off. My son's joyous expression "you got him Dad, you got him!" confirmed my suspicion of a lethal shot!

    Closing the final pages of Zeke's book made this memory come crashing back into my mind, not because it was a another hobby I needed to release, but, because of the similar feelings that were evoked when holding that gun and reading Zeke's words: AWE of the incredible witty prose and wisdom beyond his years; POWER that he uncovers in the life of any father who willingly, or unwillingly, will either build up or tear down those closest to him, namely his wife, children and friends; and HUMBLE awareness in not making me feel the guilt and shame which often result after reading a highly-respected Christian author, realizing I still have so much to learn.

    Zeke hits the nail on the head in Chapter 5 as he delves into the "Performance Story" most men try to live out. I was raised by a coach and a school teacher. Everything could be measured from grades to tackles; my self-worth was based on how high they were. Something (or someone ie. the Holy Spirit) about Zeke's confessions stirred in me a tidal wave of emotions. Most of the emotions had a putrid smell to them..."If men choose to live by the salty "Performance Story", they must be willing to die by it. And this way of life SLAYS everyone." pg 69

    This book needs to be read by men in small groups, on hunting-trips, and in the bedroom with their wives. Men who know Zeke realize that he is gifted beyond most of our dreams in his agile use of words, and his ability to
    communicate truth. I dropped this book on my bed last night and said "Honey, you always ask me what I'm thinking, right? Read this book and you will better understand me."

    As I retire tonight, tired from the treadmill of life, the hope of living the Grace Story gives me a glimmer of peace. I hope you find the same conviction and encouragement in "Man on the Run" as I did. I heartily recommend this book and must say with all sincerity,..."ATTA BOY, Zeke!!!"

  • I ordered this book for my pastor, school director, seminary student, basketball playing, rock climbing, dog training and wood-carving brother as a birthday present but decided to thumb through it on my own before giving it to him. I was captivated! What a wise and insightful book for men who seem to do everything but aren't sure how to focus on the things that really matter. This would be a great gift for husbands, fathers and brothers.

  • Man on the Run is a great and challenging book for men who want to "live well". The man who wants to get the most out of their relationship with Christ, marriage, and being a dad. I am an outdoorsman. One who longs for the days of the treestand and watching the sunrise and set. Zeke has a way of pointing out that this is ok but dont forget the support system you have at home. I appreciate how he incorparates the Bible into his thoughts. It's not just one mans opinion but is supported by the words of God. I would recommend Man on the Run for any man who wants to be a better husband, father, and follower of Jesus.

  • Gave as a gift. He seems to like it.
