Author Talk & Book Signing Saturday, March 3rd at 11:00 at the Library!

Author Zeke Pipher will be at the Library on Saturday, March 3rd, to discuss his book entitled “Man on the Run:  Helping Hyper-Hobbied Men Recognize the Best Things in Life”.  The book will hit bookstore shelves on March 6th.

Do you have a hyper-hobbied man in your life? Maybe “you “are a hyper-hobbied man. Hobbies and adventurous pursuits are good for the soul, says author Zeke Pipher. In fact, the human spirit was designed for challenge, stimulation, even risk. So why a book about hyper-hobbied men? 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. To do this, men need the help and support of their wives, children, friends, and greater community. If these basics are in place, watch out. Everyone wins when men are on the run.

Passionate, pursuit-driven men can make great husbands, fathers, friends, and colleagues precisely because of their tenacious tendencies. Yet the qualities that make men pursue adventure above all else can wreck their lives; overzealous men end up losing out on the best things in life. How to have the best of both worlds is what this book is all about.

Zeke is the senior pastor of Heartland Evangelical Free Church in Central City, NE. His sermons are broadcast each week throughout central Nebraska, northern Kansas, southern South Dakota, and western Iowa. His articles and photos appear regularly in several national sports magazines, including “Deer and Deer Hunting”, “Bow & Arrow Hunting”, and “Petersen’s Bowhunting”. He holds a Master of Divinity degree from Talbot School of Theology and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.
