From the book's Introduction:
"My near namesake - William Jennings Bryan - has written a typical story In His Image, which speaks of 2000-plus years of common knowledge. ('BC' means, by the way, 'Before Common Knowledge') ... But mine is a story that goes back hundreds if not thousands of years. It is the story of an intrinsic beauty represented in centuries of stone carving - the beauty of the male form.
"In the museum of antiquities in Athens, Greece, there is row upon row of ancient attempts at casting this divine image in stone. There is an entire room of kouros, the early attempts of sculpting this image - it is like entering the shower room of modern-day football athletes."
