Editorial Reviews

Review

“Alan Medinger is one of the true sages of the Christian ex-gay movement. His life has been blessed by a hard-earned wisdom. In Growth into Manhood the reader is given the chance to learn what Medinger knows about the qualities of character that define a mature man, about the practical steps a man can take to grow into his fullest potential, and about the paradoxical truth that, in the end, real manhood is ‘something we give away.’” — Joseph Nicolosi, Ph.D., National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality

“A terrific book loaded with fresh insights and practical encouragement for the man struggling to move into the fullness of his manhood.” — Bob Davies, Executive Director, Exodus International-North America

From the Inside Flap

A breakthrough plan for males to re-enter the world of men.

What happens when a boy grows physically into an adult male but misses some of the experiences and relationships that help form complete manhood? Alan Medinger writes for such men and for those who care about them.

Within the context of his own release from homosexuality and his growth into ?confident and comfortable? manhood, Medinger offers hope to others. For homosexually oriented men, such growth is an essential but often overlooked step in the process of healing. This ground-breaking study could well change many lives.

This is for those struggling with Same Sex Attraction and anyone in our culture with an open mind.
A Customer
Gender is highly complex and something I don't think fits so neatly into the binary model of Abrahamic religious tradition and western conventional thought.
D. TAT
I recommend this book highly to those who are struggling, have questions, and who just came from rotten childhoods.

Format: Paperback
This would be a good book for you if:

1). You believe that the fact that humans are male and female,

and can experience the qualities of masculinity and

femininity, is reflective of a divine intent and not the

result of accidental evolution.

2). You are a man who experiences sexual attractions and

emotional longings for other men, but who also has the

intellectual integrity and emotional courage to ask what

these obvious desires for maleness/male connection

signify and what experiences in your past may have

contributed to them, and if you have a sneaking suspicion

that conventional gay orthodoxy doesn't provide all the

answers, despite whatever oversimplifications or

judgmental attitudes that professing Christians have

exhibited.

This book is like a gift from a warm, wise and perceptive uncle. As I read it, I feel like I am being mentored by a good man who is telling me about myself in ways I could not find words for. One memorable point is his use of the word "nonman" to explain how I have often felt--can't identify with other men very well yet certainly not a woman. His clear and systematic articulation of what the problem is and how to fix it and his constant encouragement all along the way is wonderful. Even his writing style and the look of the book is attractively masculine. This is a Christian book but even non-Christians would probably enjoy and certainly benefit from Medinger's insights. I highly recommend it, along with Frank Pittman's "Man Enough."

I have to confess I didn't buy the book for me. I got it to help me understand how others struggle and the issues they face. Instead I found it to be a great help to my own personal life. As a man and father with three sons. It was very biblical, practical, and honest. It is a great book for any man who wants to understand God's design for masculinity. This is a great book if your looking for something that is quick and easy to read and understand.

This book, if you let the truth drill into the core of who you are, will change your life. So many of us, homosexual or even weak hetersexual, refuse to face the facts. At some point in our life we experienced something traumatic, real or even imagined. It injured us in such a way that we withdrew into ourselves and our fantasies.
I think I always knew this, but I was afraid to admit it. More, I had no idea how to get beyond my self-pity and feelings of being victimized.
Alan Medinger's book gave me the road map I needed, a road map gleaned from painful experience. Just reading the back page in the bookstore I began to feel something working in me. I realize now it was the Spirit of God, the Spirit of truth.
In Christ, and with the power of the His Spirit, I know I can be the man God always wanted me to be. And you (if you're a man, of course) can too.

Format: Paperback
This book is the helpful product of the author's Biblically informed experience, from dealing with both himself and those he has served for over 25 years in the Exodus ministry. In distinction from other excellent books on the subject of same-sex attraction, this one focuses on identity issues, and argues that it is a boy's arrested gender-identity development that prompts him to grow up craving male affirmation in unhealthy, excessive, ultimately idolatrous ways. The author writes about the practical outworkings of overcoming the profoundly spiritual, psychological, and emotional challenges presented by the struggle for sexual wholeness. This book helped me significantly.

This book hits the nail square on the head. For those who don't believe in God, it may be a difficult read, because the author bases a lot of the healing from unwanted homosexual attractions on a strong and solid relationship with God.

I would say that the key point in the book is not necessarily how to abolish your same-sex attractions (although i believe that is possible as well), rather it is focused on encouraging a man to feel like a man. Men who experience same-sex attractions simply do not feel like men; we can't identify ourselves as a MAN...that word doesn't seem to fit us. Thats exactly how i feel, and this book has given me a very feasible plan to which i know that i can and will obtain true manhood through healing from God (along with additional counselling and other resources).

This book isn't the bible for recovery. It is a starting point...an additional resource to be used to enhance your understanding about homosexuality, and to gain a deeper understanding of yourself or someone you know who struggles. If you are daring enough to see where God will take you if you are willing, take a little insight from this book and rely on God for the rest.

I would recommend this for any male, not necessarily limited to those struggling with homosexual issues. It is an in-depth look at what is needed for growth into manhood, and being OK with being a man, and what being a man entails.
