Publisher's Description

Man Enough challenges the idea that there is one way to be a man. The masculinity that pervades our church and culture often demands that men conform to a macho ideal, leaving many men feeling ashamed that they’re not living up to God’s plan for them. Nate uses his own story of not feeling "man enough", as well as sociological and historical reflections, to help men see that manhood isn’t about what you do, but who you are. It’s not about the size of your paycheck, your athletic ability, or your competitive spirit. You don’t have to fit any masculine stereotype to be a real man.

In our culture and churches more thoughtful, quieter, or compassionate personalities, as well as stay-at-home dads, are often looked down upon; and sermons, conferences, and publications center on helping men become "real men". This pressure to have one’s manhood validated is antithetical to Gospel living and negatively affects how men relate to each other, to women and children, and to God.

Man Enough roots men in the Gospel, examines biblical examples of masculinity that challenge the idea of a singular type of man, and ultimately encourages men to conform to the image of Jesus—freeing men up to be who they were created to be: a son of God who uniquely bears His image.

    This review was written for Man Enough: How Jesus Redefines Manhood.
    Nate Pyle in his new book, Man Enough published by Zondervan gives us How Jesus Redefines Manhood.

    From the back cover: The freedom and faith to be the man you were made to be

    Its not about the size of your paycheck. Its not about your athletic ability. Its not about your competitive spirit.

    Manhood isnt about what you do; its about who you are.

    Man Enough doesnt just challenge the idea that there is one way to be a man; it obliterates it. Using his own story of not feeling man enough, author Nate Pyle exposes the disordered masculinity that pervades our church and culture and offers a refreshing message of grace and hope to men who are exhausted from trying to fulfill an unattainable model of manhood.

    In our culture and churches more thoughtful, quieter, or compassionate personalities, as well as stay-at-home dads, are often looked down upon; and sermons, conferences, and publications center on helping men become real men. This pressure to have ones manhood validated is antithetical to Gospel living and negatively affects how men relate to each other, to women and children, and to God.

    Man Enough roots men in the Gospel, examines biblical examples of masculinity that challenge the idea of a singular type of man, and ultimately encourages men to conform to the image of Jesusfreeing men up to be who they were created to be: a son of God who uniquely bears His image.

    I will never fix a car. I will never score a touchdown. If you drop me in the wilderness I will not make it back to civilization and I just will not survive. Does that not make me a man? God made me in His image and He never fixed a car or scored a touchdown either. Pastor Pyle tells us, being a man is not dependent on what one does; rather, a man is a man because he is made in the image of God. . . . Masculinity does not need to be proved; it needs to be affirmed I think that every man should get a hold of this book and read it from cover to cover. I think that each man will give out a relieved sigh as he begins to realize that he doesnt have to work at it to be a man. It is simply that he already is. Let us break the stereotype. God does not require people to prove themselves as worthy before he calls them to himself. Rather, in his calling of people, God deems them as worthy. This book would be a great gift to give to the male friends and family so that they could break the stereotype as well. I recommend it highly!
