What makes a man a man?
Is it the work we do? Is it about carrying a rugged, independent spirit? Does it come down to grip strength or test scores? Is it in what we own, or proved through our accomplishments?
Masculinity is complex, and the answers we seek seem lost in a culture that is confused about manhood. Yet, the stakes are high. We need to figure this out, not only for ourselves, but so that we can raise the next generation of men. Our sons and grandsons long for a clear picture of faithful, courageous masculinity. They need real men to show them the way. How can we can be the fathers, grandfathers, and mentors that they need us to be?
