A tender heart toward God is one of the hallmarks of true masculinity. Parents, your sons need your presence and availability to help shape them into men of God.
Being a godly man has never been more challenging—or more necessary—than it is today. Immersed in stereotypes that paint men as either weak-kneed wimps or muscle-bound brutes, the biblical view of Christlike manhood has not fared well. And those Christian men who try to base their lives on biblical principles often meet tough resistance.
As a man, what does God want from you? How does the biblical picture of manhood manifest itself in the 21st century? Insight for Living can help you address tough topics facing men today, from God's expectations for male leadership to overcoming sexual temptation and sin. Let us equip you with tools to transform your imperfect image of manhood to the image of the perfect Man, Jesus Christ.
