Great Read Jul 21, 2008
The authors have succinctly articulated the essence of Christian masculinity, and have shared experiences about their marriages and parenting that largely "ring true" to me personally. Their thoughts about work and the responsibility of providing for one's own correctly captures the dichotomy of responsibility vs. personal fulfillment, and the integral part personal sacrifice and service to others play in being a "real man". While they don't get it 100% right (why should they?--the rest of us have been struggling with these issues for years and don't have it right either), they bring voice to feelings and truths most men need to confront in their lives. I wish I'd read this book 30 years ago.
