The True Measure of a Man is a book aimed at helping men wrestle with questions about their identity, purpose, and personal happiness. It is a great first experience for guys in a small group. The topics raised in each chapter give room for exploration of the gospel without the message being forced. 


"Child in Tree" picture - this is a great picture to show at your first meeting as an icebreaker. Ask the group, "If the tree represents God, which child do you feel best represents your current relationship with God?"

This is a great video to use during the discussion of chapter 4. Ask, "what would you write on the board?"
