Product Description

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. 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.

Publisher's Description

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.

Rev. Richard D. Phillips believes the problem and the inadequate solutions being put forward demand sound exegesis of biblical passages relating to masculinity. The Bible alone has the answer to what men are to be in the eyes of their Creator.

In this book, Rev. Phillips provides this essential exegesis and issues a call to reformation in the evangelical church's attitude toward the role of men in the family, the church, and society.

The Masculine Mandate by Richard D. Phillips, is a book that addresses a growing void within the church: the lack of male leadership. Proposing the foundation that it is man’s chief concern to bring glory to God through the means of keeping and guarding, the author effectively and systematically addresses the main elements of a man’s life.

Richard’s boldness in addressing the issues unflinchingly is only outshone by his ability to communicate. After reading the book one cannot only see the addressed problem, but also understand why it is a problem and how to fix it. The book provides an array of scriptural references and well-thought anecdotes, all related in a sincere, respectable, masculine tone as should be expected from a book on such a topic.

The book is split into two parts: “Understanding the Mandate” and “Living the Mandate.” The first section establishes biblically who man is by taking an in-depth look at Genesis 2 and then looking at man’s duty to work, bear God’s image, and maintain lordship over creation. The second section deals with application in work, marriage and dating, child rearing, brotherly friendships, and church business.

Genesis 2:27 says, “So God created man in his own image,” and this book sublimely helps show what that is. The Masculine Mandate, in my most honest assessment, is life changing if one is open. I read the entire thing in a day, turning my morning devotion into a mini self-recreation exercise—especially concerning the elements pertaining to marriage and dating. I recommend this book to any man ages 16 and older. — Matthew J. Mimnaugh, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
