Order Living that Matters: Honest Conversations for Men of Faith
Do you wonder what it means to be a man? Do you desire to grow? Want something more? Long for a life that matters? Seek to make a difference in the world? If so, Living That Matters may be for you or your group. This practical handbook is a guide to help individuals and groups engage in honest conversations on what matters most for men—with a focus on following Jesus, forming community, and building peace.
With over 60 years of combined experience in pastoral ministry and social work geared toward men, authors Steve Thomas and Don Neufeld offer many short reflections to help individuals and groups deepen relationships with one another, with ourselves, with our families and communities, and with God as we seek to live into God’s shalom—a peaceable order with abundance, security, and justice for all and well-being throughout creation.

Digital resources available for Peaceful at Heart
Mennonite Men, in collaboration with Mennonite Central Committee's Ontario office, has created an audiobook, study guide, and a podcast/video interview series with the book's contributors. These written, audio and video materials will assist in individual or group engagement of these critical ideas.
The interview series includes the personalities and passions of each of the contributors as they are interviewed about their chapters. Cedric Martin of Ontario-based Theatre of the Beat hosts the interviews and performs the audiobook. Retired professor Dan Epp-Tiessen walks leaders through a series of 11 sessions in the written study guide, providing suggestions for facilitating group conversations including questions to get men thinking and sharing. From the hard stuff of abuse to a vision for living life with a peaceful heart, covering a broad reach of masculinities, Peaceful at Heart challenges our thinking of what it means to be men of God.
