Product Description

Like the danger of a maelstrom in the open seas, a relentless force threatens our culture. This maelstrom swirls with currents that produce confused and distorted images of manhood perpetuated by our society and even by the church.

Digging deeply into the stories of incredible men in the Bible, Malestrom offers what we so desperately need--a biblical, global, timeless vision of manhood that is big enough to encompass the diversity of men's lives and strong enough to withstand the contingencies they face.

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.

Author Bio

Her ministry organization, WhitbyForum, promotes thoughtful biblical discussion to help men and women serve God together. Carolyn founded and is president of the Synergy Women’s Network. She is a consulting editor for Zondervan's Exegetical Commentary Series on the New Testament and author of When Life and Beliefs Collide and Lost Women of the Bible. Carolyn and her husband live in Sellersville, Pennsylvania. They have one grown daughter.

Editorial Reviews

With her characteristic warmth and wisdom, Carolyn Custis James examines manhood through the lens of Jesus Christ and offers a better way forward for men, a way characterized by partnership, joy, and humility.
Malestrom takes a close and provocative look at the dangers of patriarchy by taking a close look at what Scripture says about it. This book will lead you to ponder the type of person God asks all of us --- male and female --- to be. It is a good question to meditate on.
By surveying the diverse biblical landscape with wisdom, insight, and conviction, Carolyn Custis James calls for a Christ-centered understanding of ‘male,’ where men and women are equal image bearers of God, truly one flesh, and thus coworkers in the mission of God on earth. James’s Malestrom is a prophetic and healing voice.
This conversation is long overdue within the global church today. A timely, well-articulated, and thought-provoking book!
In Malestrom, Carolyn Custis James takes us by the hand and leads us through the story of how God dismantles patriarchy in the Bible. By the time we’re done reading, a new space has been cleared. Men can now be men. Women can now be women. And together we can live God’s gendered salvation. It is a remarkable accomplishment.”

    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.
