Publisher's Description

Malestrom builds on and expands previous books by Carolyn Custis James to explore the idea of manhood, a growing issue both in the wider culture and in the church. Until now, the entire discussion has been largely reduced to Western conceptions. Instead, James here shows how our culture’s narrow definitions of manhood are upended when we consider the examples of men in the Bible and Jesus’ gospel. Together, they show a whole new Kingdom way of being male and forging men and women into the Blessed Alliance.

    As a female pastor, I have a lot of experience thinking about how women are negatively affected by patriarchyparticularly in the church. With Malestrom: Manhood Swept into the Currents of a Changing World, however, Carolyn Custis James cogently articulates the negative impact that patriarchy also has on men. James explores both the biblical text and the contemporary world, studying the plight of men contrasted with the flourishing that comes when men and women participate together in the Blessed Alliance designed by God for humanity.

    James primary research for Malestrom focuses on the stories of men in Scripture, including Adam, Abraham, Jacob, Judah, Joseph, Barak, Boaz, Matthew, Joseph, Jesus, and Paul. Each of these men had to battle the malestrom, which James describes as the particular ways in which the fall impacts the male of the human speciescausing a man to lose himself, his identity and purpose as a man, and above all to lose sight of Gods original vision for his sons, (18). Through each of their stories, these men find freedom as they break the pull of their culture and participate in the mission of God in the world by partnering with their sisters in the faith in a Blessed Alliance.

    For readers wanting more practical solutions to resisting the malestrom, that is not the direct aim of this work. Rather, James brings our attention to discover the currents in our world that entrap men, into which we need to live and proclaim the freeing gospel of Christ. Malestrom is a book to alert our minds and senses to become aware of the problem. It has certainly done such for me and filled me with greater conviction to contextualize the gospel in a way that matters for men who are stuck in the current confines of our cultures ideals.

    * A special thanks to Zondervan Academic for providing a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
