In The Measure of a Man, Getz has devoted one chapter to each of Paul's twenty criteria. These are short chapters: three to six pages discussing the characteristic followed by a couple pages of self-evaluation questions and ways to improve. What Getz has to say is generally good, but brief; it's enough to make the open-minded reader consider his behavior, but for serious growth in most any of these areas, the reader will want to move on to other, more in-depth resources, and perhaps, in some cases, counseling.
Theologically, The Measure of a Man is has no major red flags. Getz has obvious fundamentalist/Pentecostal beliefs, but there's nothing discussed here that should turn off Christians of other flavors. And since nothing here is explored in terribly great depth, the book's ecumenical appeal is undamaged.
The Measure of a Man is a short, fast read that should, at the least, inspire some self-reflection in any Christian who's honest with himself.
If you are starting a Men's Bible study or are new to spiritual leadership, I strongly encourage this book. The only caveat is that you must engage each chapter's challenges. Each chapter will challenge you to work on those areas where you may have spiritual weaknesses. It will require an honest assessment of your spiritual strengths and challenges and provide directions to take as part of your growth and progress. If you are ready for that challenge, or are starting a Men's Bible Study or have men new to ministry or leadership, this is a good book. Buy lots of copies though.
