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.

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 cultures 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.
Carolyn Custis James (MA, Biblical Studies) travels extensively as a popular speaker for women's conferences, churches, colleges, seminaries, and other Christian organizations. Her ministry organization, WhitbyForum, promotes thoughtful biblical discussion to help men and women serve God together. Carolyn founded and is president of the Synergy Womens 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.
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. Jamess 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 were done reading, a new space has been cleared. Men can now be men. Women can now be women. And together we can live Gods gendered salvation. It is a remarkable accomplishment.
