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.

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.”
