Manhood Restored: How the Gospel Makes Men Whole - by Eric Mason
"The earthly crisis within manhood will remain until Jesus returns, but in Christ a man is pointed toward the gospel as the vision for renewal. Manhood Restored by exciting new pastoral voice Eric Mason combines theological depth with practical insights, putting men in step with a gospel-centered manhood that will enrich every facet of their lives.
The Scope of Manhood:
Mason begins by looking first at why God created man, at the diferences between man and woman, and what should drive the purpose of a man during his time on earth.
The Problems in Mandhood:
Mason analyzes the false icons that lead to cultural caricatures of men--the businessman, the thug, the playboy, the athlete, etc.--then makes a connection to the cross-cultural fatherhood crisis by looking at what men do to fill the void when their relationship with Dad or God is not there.
The Redemption of Manhood:
Mason sets Jesus as the true standard of biblical manhood, looking to His perfect example to redeem and restore a man's life in the areas of sexuality, home, and work."
