Item description for Healing the Masculine Soul: God's Restoration of Men to Real Manhood by Gordon Dalbey...
Overview Men are increasingly confused over the meaning of true manhood. Dalbey reveals Christ-centered methods for pursuing and attaining genuine masculine virtues and identity.
In his groundbreaking book fifteen years ago, Gordon Dalbey identified the fact that men's souls have been torn between strength and sensitivity. Today, the situation is even worse. The politically correct crowd cries out for men to be more sensitive, to tame their masculine nature. On the opposing side, the media bombards men with "macho" images of violence and lust. Is it any wonder men are left bewildered about who they should be?
In this newly revised and updated edition of "Healing the Masculine Soul," Dalbey claims that there's hope for restoration, hope for healing-because Christ has come to heal us. God is calling men out to a relationship with Himself and calling them out to authentic manhood. "Our task is not to curse our manhood, but to redeem it," he writes.
Gordon Dalbey's refreshing, comprehensive picture of God's design for the masculine soul dares men to be as God created them to be-not as society demands. Dalbey tackles the tough issues, including work, sexuality, marriage, and fatherhood.

Reviews - What do customers think about Healing The Masculine Soul (Revised)?
One of the most lucid approaches to men's issues I've ever seen. Mar 12, 2007
Wow ... if there were a six-star option I would use it here. If you are a man, read this book. If you are a wife or mother or in any other way love a man, read this book.
Mr. Dalbey, with great credibility, lays out a case that explains why we are so lost as men today. If you don't think you are, but have the courage to explore the possibility, then read this book anyway. Both culturally and personally, the author teaches us why we stumble so easily and then he reaches out and tells us how to begin the process of change for our relationships and communities. It doesn't matter if you are Christian, Jew, agnostic or atheist. If you have a concern for the direction of our families and our culture, if you have a history of troubled relationships, if you lack for male friendships, if you want to break the cycle with your children, (pick your own cycle -- you probably are perpetuating one or more) especially with your son, and equip them to soar in this world, you must read this book. This is not just another psycho-speak, self-help book. Buy an extra highliter. You'll need it.
Wonderful book Jul 4, 2006
The book is right on point with the issues of manhood. It reminds me of another similar book, called False Roads To Manhood. Gordon does an excellant job of pulling back the viel on the hidden problems swempt under the emotional carpet of manhood. Fathers and sons will be enlightened on the importance of their connection to each other. Healing the Masculine soul is for generation after generartion of men.
A Very Important Book May 24, 2006
Dalbey doesn't just assess the problems with masculinity in America (and the American church) today, but gives incredible insights on how to turn things around in your life.
I wish more men would read this book and apply its message.
Helpful Insights for Christian Men Dec 4, 2005
When I first started reading this title, I thought it would be little more than a lengthy discourse on meaningless psycho-babble regarding men and their many emotional shortcomings. It began slowly, but as I continued following the author's progression of thought, I understood that many of his concepts and ideas ring true. While he is a little too light on Scripture and a little too heavy on psychological theory, he still makes many good points for Christian men in today's society.
There are helpful insights here -- it will prove to be a good read for many Christian men.
Excellent Aug 20, 2005
I bought this book for my husband, but I was the one who ended up reading it. I was intrigued by the insight into men and think every woman should read this book in order to pray for their husbands and son's more effectively. I believe this author has keen insight and wisdom straight from the Father's heart and he truly understands the male's soul. What a tremendous book that contains so much healing. Truly this should be read by men to set them free from the lies of society that try to dictate what a man is and read by women to gain greater insight into the men in their lives. Great book and I highly recommend it!
