The Masculine Mandate

The Masculine Mandate

$23.99

Hardback

There is a crying need in the church today for men to be men. But competing visions for what a man is to be - some growing out of popular culture and others arising from flawed teaching in the church - are exacerbating the problem. Richard Phillips believes it is possible to cut through all of this confusion by consulting the Bible. Only in the pages of Scripture, he asserts, can men find a clear explanation of their God-given roles as leaders, husbands, fathers, and churchmen.

Beginning in Genesis, Phillips shows that God commissioned Adam to work and tend the Garden of Eden. In these twin tasks, he perceives a template for manhood, one that, when carried out with diligence, provides dignity to men, service to mankind, and glory to God. He then goes on to show that men are called to lead, to love their wives, to discipline their children, and to serve the church of Jesus Christ. Here is biblical exposition of the most practical sort teaching that reveals not only what men are to think but what they are to be.

Christian men, read this book!
5 stars By Aaron, Oct 15 2012
This book clearly helped me to define just what, as a young Christian man I need to be doing in my life and working on to continue to glorify God and his purpose in creating me. Phillips takes the creation mandate given to man of 'work' and 'keep' and shows us how we are to live our lives for God in all situations.

Manly Men step up!
5 stars By Trevor Hunt, Nov 19 2010
Manly Men this is the book! Forget Wild at Heart & high fiving at Promisekeepers. This is a geniune Biblical exposition of what godly manliness is to be. To work & keep are the mandates that the Bible details for a man. It's robust & courageous but not in a hee man, uncouth manner. Learn & desire to fulfil the masculine mandate by reading this book.
