About the Book
From boyhood, we search for heroes, starting with our fathers. But somewhere along the way, all our heroes disappoint us. And our attempts to be a hero fair no better, leaving us confused and unsure. Yet the heroic longing never leaves us. We want to be that heroic man, but we do not know how.
Jesus does. He is the great hero of all time. And he calls men to follow him. As we follow, we will quickly realize that the path is surprising. He will first lead us into a place of fear and trembling. He will lead us into death. It is our initiation as men into the new life of the heroic. But the death will be followed by a stunning resurrection. We will find out our true names before him and be given a heroic quest for his kingdom. And most importantly, we will discover the secret of true greatness, letting our lives go to serve others.
In the end, we become most heroic in the silence of his presence. Here, we will feel his love, as he remakes us into his heroic image, uniting us to himself.

About the Author
Bill studied at Duke University and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. After graduation, Bill was involved for eight years in pastoral ministry as a youth minister and church planter. After the heartbreak of a failed church plant, he took a position in 1992 teaching Bible at Christ Presbyterian Academy in Nashville, TN. During that time, he also coached the boys track and cross country teams.
Bill found his quest for the next 20 years — connecting the Bible to the hearts of high school students. But toward the end of that time, he began to feel God’s urging him to pursue a new quest. This one would be connecting the Bible to the hearts of men. Despite his initial fear and objections, his community encouraged him to begin something new. In 2012, Bill left full-time teaching to begin Landmark Journey Ministries.
