Recently I picked up the book “Wild at Heart” by John Eldredge, hearing that it was a good book about Manhood. Stu Weber sings the same tune and hits many of the same notes as Eldredge does at he relates to his audience what he believes a real man of God should look like. Although not quite as systematic as Eldredge, Weber nonetheless goes through different steps/stages of a man’s life: treating a woman, having children, a man and his friends, emotions, etc. The thing about Eldredge and Weber are that they both expose the 21st century “man’s man” for what he is: a fraud. God’s idea of a man is not like Vin Diesel or the Dos Equis man from the beer commercials. God’s plan for manhood is not like a wise-cracking Alec Baldwin or Vince Vaughn. God’s idea for a man’s man is so much deeper, richer, and so much closer to His nature than any of the images we see portrayed in the media. Looks like you’ll have to read the books (or The Book) to find out what I mean. I highly reccommend Tender Warrior to any man, teen, or boy searching for what God wants him to be.
