10 Lies Men Believe is a compassionate but confrontational look at the reasons why so many Christian men today are in serious crisis.
The author, who has spent eight years confronting the abuse of women in more than twenty countries, believes men are failing in marriage, fatherhood, friendships, and careers because of ten wrong mind-sets inherited from culture. With gut-level honesty, the author offers practical answers for men who struggle with a variety of issues, including addiction, abusive tendencies, pornography, controlling behavior, and emotional problems rooted in a lack of proper fathering. The book is also an excellent resource for women who are suffering because of mistreatment by the men in their lives.
Every day our dysfunctional culture sends mixed signals about manhood as we are bombarded with messages that try to set the standard for us.
• The world of sports tells us that authentic masculinity is linked to physical strength and winning the game.
• The world of finance suggests that our worth is tied to the size of our bank accounts, the square footage of our houses, and the make and model of the cars we drive.
• Hollywood tells us that real manhood is measured by our sexual prowess.
But if we are honest we must admit that muscles, money, and multiple sex partners don’t qualify us for true manhood. The measure of a real man goes much deeper. (Product description)
