Making Men

Author: Chuck Holton
Publisher: BookBaby
ISBN: 9781618423252
Release Date: 2011-09-30
Genre: Religion

YOU’RE THE MAN. NOW ACT LIKE IT. Thirteen million single mothers. A culture drowning in passivity. Where have all the men gone? Most men spend their entire lives learning what it means to be a man. There are plenty of role models available, from our own fathers to coaches to movie stars – but not all of them set a Godly example. Even when they have the best intentions, most men lead by example and expect their sons to understand what manhood is without ever receiving intentional training on the subject. As a result, most bear the scars of the mistakes made along the way in trying to prove their manhood to themselves and others. Man up is an intentional look at the facets of a fully-engaged, powerful, passionate and functional man using Biblical wisdom and the experience of dozens of mature men, set into a five step process that is easy enough for a ten-year-old boy (and his father) to memorize and understand. Once learned, this study will give every young man a clear gauge of manhood against which he can measure himself, thus freeing him from ever wondering what he must do to prove that he has what it takes. In picking this book up to share with their sons, adults will learn more about the mantle of manhood, too, and will be challenged to shun passivity and take up the headship that is their duty, one sadly that is often left to the woman of the house. It is intended also to help single mothers to teach their sons about manhood in the absence of an engaged father figure. The study will benefit young women as well, many of whom go into their college years with no healthy idea of what a real man looks like – and end up making terrible dating and marriage choices because of it.

Bringing chivalry back into our modern-day world, this book shows us how to inspire today's generation of young boys to pursue honor, courage, and compassion. In an age when respect and honor seem like distant and antiquated relics, how can we equip boys to pursue valor and courageously put the needs of others before their own? This book helps parents to inspire their boys by captivating their imagination and honoring their love for adventure. Heather Haupt explores how knights historically lived out various aspects of the knights' Code of Chivalry, as depicted in the French epic Song of Roland, and how boys can embody these same ideals now. When we issue the challenge and give boys the reasons why it is worth pursuing, we step forward on an incredible journey towards raising the kind of boys who, just like the knights of old, make an impact in their world now and for the rest of their lives.

For generations, other religions and cultures have put their children through a rite of passage to adulthood. Many people are aware of the Jewish practice of the Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, for example.

Moms, dads, and other perfectly placed adults have the unique opportunity to guide the teenagers in their life toward adulthood. This is not a privilege to be taken lightly, but neither is it an impossible task. Jim McBride, executive producer of Fireproof and Courageous, brings wisdom, experience, and practical examples to his guidebook for leading those burgeoning adults in your life through a real-life Rite of Passage.

Man Maker Project

Author: Chris Bruno
Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers

Release Date: 2015-02-23
Genre: Religion

"Father" is a verb, and fathering is the highest calling of God on men. Man Maker Project is a guide for fathers to intentionally usher their sons into godly manhood. Now more than ever, the reality of unfinished men confronts us at every turn. Without intentional fathering, a boy's core question--Am I a man?--forever echoes in his soul. Every boy needs to hear his father's clear "yes" in response. While many fathers know they should do something for their maturing sons, they have little idea how to create such an initiatory process. Man Maker Project offers a practical roadmap that equips fathers to create a unique, modern-day masculine initiation experience for their sons. Rather than a single event or ceremony, fathers can guide their boys through a yearlong process, with the support of a cadre of hand-selected men. This book also challenges fathers to investigate their own stories, as God's mutually redemptive design is for us to be fathered ourselves as we father our sons. Through this modern-day rites of passage process, fathers fulfill their calling, sons find their footing, and society receives solid men ready to strongly and kindly restore the world.
