“Men were made to rule. They always have and always will. Nothing can change that. Nothing will. It is not a question of whether men will be ruling, but which ones and how.” ~From
It's Good to Be a Man
Our modern society has called for us to “smash the patriarchy,” and the church has not done much better.Instead of telling men how they can hone and refine their aggressive traits, the church has told men that they should aspire to be meek servant-leaders, and when a man shows any signs of independence, he is shown to the door.This leaves most young men lost. They don’t know what to do or how to improve, so they watch Jordan Peterson videos on YouTube to learn how to grow in their masculinity and sense of mission.But Michael Foster and Bnonn Tennant seek to remind men that their natural aggressive instincts are gifts from God that are meant to be used for the kingdom. Men are supposed to found households, join brotherhoods, and work towards a mission.
It's Good to Be A Man
offers men a quick guide to where they are and how they can be better.God made men to be strong and aggressive risk-takers. This is a feature, not a bug. Foster and Tennant remind us that It’s Good to Be a Man."Hard times make real men. In an age when masculinity is attacked from every angle, leading to a generation at equal turns passive and belligerent, Michael Foster and Bnonn Tennant have given us a manifesto for manhood. This is a clarion call. It stands out all the more for the lack of such clear speech and precise biblical teaching in evangelical circles today.
It's Good to Be a Man
anchors men in the Word, in the grace of God, in the truth.
This is one of the best books on manhood ever written, period.
"~Owen Strachan, Provost, Grace Bible Theological Seminary; author, Christianity and Wokeness and Reenchanting Humanity"This book is an exercise in moderate extremism, or perhaps you might want to call it radical moderation.... This book is a careful, balanced, scriptural look at the task that God has assigned to men, and is a celebration of God’s good wisdom. And God is willing to give men the grace and ability to do what they were created and called to do—so men should make sure that they know what they are asking for. This is not possible apart from looking to Scripture for our answers. A man is not a deficient woman, and a woman is not a deficient man. God’s calling and God’s gifting line up. This book is highly recommended—for pastors, for parents, for teachers. If you have young men in your life, this book is essential."~Douglas Wilson, author of
