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 theya€™re not living up to Goda€™s plan for them. Nate uses his own story of not feeling a€œman enougha€, as well as sociological and historical reflections, to help men see that manhood isna€™t about what you do, but who you are. Ita€™s not about the size of your paycheck, your athletic ability, or your competitive spirit. You dona€™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 a€œreal mena€. This pressure to have onea€™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 Jesusa€”freeing men up to be who they were created to be: a son of God who uniquely bears His image.Man Enough challenges the idea that there is one way to be a man.
