Manhood Restored

How the Gospel Makes Men Whole
Eric Mason, Matt Chandler, Tony Evans

The earthly crisis within manhood will be there until Jesus returns, but in Christ men are 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.

Mason begins with The Scope of Manhood — looking first at why God created man, at the divine differences between man and woman, and what should drive the purpose of a man during his time on earth.

A section on The Problems in Manhood analyzes the false icons that lead to cultural caricatures of men — the businessman, the thug, the playboy, the athlete, etc. Mason then makes a connection to the cross-cultural fatherhood crisis, looking at the things men do to fill the void when their relationship with dad or God is not there.

Finally, The Redemption of Manhood 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.
