In this much needed book, Stephen Boyd exposes the detrimental implications of society's demands and definition of men." "The Men We Long To Be offers an alternative identity for men and challenges them to transform their ways of being. It explores issues of alienation, guilt, and societal roles, and helps men identify their true feelings and need for change." "Boyd's call for a new understanding of manhood is rooted in a renewed spirituality that recovers the best of Christian teaching."--BOOK JACKET.
