Be a Man!: Becoming the Man God Created You to Be
Men are rediscovering the importance of the spiritual life. And Father Larry Richards is helping them do it. While some writers apply a one-size-fits-all approach to the Christian life, Father Richards draws on his many years of ministry and his own experience as a man to inspire other men as men.
In Be a Man!, he recounts his struggles to learn true manhood, as well as the inspiring stories of others he has served in his decades as a priest. He tells men how to focus on the right goal, how to live as a beloved son of God, of the need to acknowledge one's faults and to live according to the Holy Spirit, to be a man of true love and of wisdom, to appreciate properly the differences between men and women, to pursue holiness, and to make a difference in the world. Not preachy but direct, Father Richards challenges men to be strong, without putting on a mask of false strength or machismo. He calls men to admit their weaknesses and limitations, while urging them to find strength in faith and genuine love to overcome their sins and faults.
Although a celibate priest, he minces no words when it comes to the place of sexuality for the unmarried man as well as for the married man. He shows that true manliness is not opposed to love but thrives on it. Father Richards stresses that a relationship with Christ reveals the meaning of a man's life and his identity as a man. He inspires men to become the true heroes they long to be men of authentic courage, compassion and integrity. This is a highly readable book for men by a man who knows how to talk to men about the things that matter most.
Fr. Larry Richards, a popular speaker at men s conferences around the country, is the pastor of an inner city parish in Erie, PA. He hosts his own daily national radio show on Relevant Radio, and is the founder of "The Reason for Our Hope Foundation".
"Father Larry talks straight to men in his own manly style. He pulls no spiritual punches-I don't think he knows how to! He pokes, pushes, sometimes verbally slaps men into being God's men, all with an obvious love for them and faith in their ability to persevere to heaven."
-Dr. Ray Guarendi, Psychologist, National Syndicated Radio Host, and Author
"Be a Man! is a must-read for all men who are serious about strengthening their relationship with God. This exceptional book speaks clearly and directly, challenging men to live their faith with courage and conviction. Be a Man! is a spiritual wake-up call that offers a refreshingly honest presentation of what it means to be a man of God. With a unique blend of humor, passion, and frankness that has become his trademark style, Fr. Larry Richards explores how a Christ-centered male spirituality fosters growth in holiness, and inspires men to become loving servants of their wives, families, and the Church."

Bible in suitcase left behind by Chris' parents
This is the Bible left in the suitcase left by Chris' mom and dad during their visit to the bus by helicopter back in 1993. They left this bible behind even though they, admittedly, hadn't even prayed since Chris' death. According to the book by Jon Krakauer, Billie, Chris' mom, also left a note behind that encouraged all who venture off on any sort of long voyage to "call your parents as soon as possible." I hadn't seen this note anywhere in the suitcase, however.
The poem posted inside this bible reads:
To All Parents
“I’ll lend you, for a little while, a
child of mine,” He said,
“For you to love while he lives, and
mourn when he is dead.
“It may be six or seven years, or
twenty-two, or -three,
“But will you, ‘til I call him back,
take care of him for me?
“He’ll bring his charms to gladden
you, and shall his stay be brief,
“You’ll have his lovely memories as
solace for your grief.
“I cannot promise he will stay, as all
from earth return,
“But there are lessons taught down
there I want this child to learn.
“I’ve looked the wide world over in
my search for teachers true,
“And from the throngs that crowd
life’s lanes, I have selected you.
“Now will you give him all your love
- not think the labor vain,
“Nor hate me when I come to call to
take him back again.”
“I fancied that I heard them say,
‘Dear Lord, thy will be done.’
“For all the joy this child shall bring,
the risk of grief we’ll run.
“We’ll shower him with tenderness
and love him while we may,
“And for the happiness we’ve
known, forever grateful stay.
“And should the angels call for him
much sooner than we planned,
“We’ll brave the bitter grief that
comes, and try to understand.”
the old bible
this is a bible we have had for a really long time, i like the look and feel of it! the thing is so worn i have it tied together with a pretty ribbon so it won't fall apart! i can't even imagine how many fingers have run across these pages and how many hearts it has been held close to in prayer!!!

“Read, read, read. Read everything—trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it. Then write. If it is good, you’ll find out. If it’s not, throw it out the window.” —William Faulkner
Absalom, Absalom! is Faulkner’s epic tale of Thomas Sutpen, an enigmatic stranger who comes to Jefferson, Mississippi, in the early 1830s to wrest his mansion out of the muddy bottoms of the north Mississippi wilderness. He was a man, Faulkner said, “who wanted sons and the sons destroyed him.”
