Start reading the primers like Eldredege & Bly, and when you are ready to move to a deeper level, it's time for Healing the Masculine Soul. To be frank, the title scared me. I knew I was in pain, but the title didn't smack of something a MAN would read. The Lord was patient and brought me to the place where I needed to hear the messages of this work.
Careful, Gordon is deep. His sentences are all thoughts that need examination. I tend to think more in streams of consciousness, but this work was good for me. It gives you an understanding of how every man is wounded; How we all need masculine love, even if it is scary to us. It also illuminates that we are all in need of our True Father's touch, love, and guidance.
Dalbey I believe was used by the Lord "BIG TIME" in writing this. The premise is that we as men need something and we need to be pointed back to DADDY IN HEAVEN. My wife also found it incredibly healing in the chapter dealing with fathers & daughters
Get it, read it, and let it's God inspired words lead you to a transformation in Masculinity. There's not a lot of better words for men out there, other than sitting in the lap of your Almighty Father, and letting him speak to you.
There are helpful insights here -- it will prove to be a good read for many Christian men.
Mr. Dalbey, with great credibility, lays out a case that explains why we are so lost as men today. If you don't think you are, but have the courage to explore the possibility, then read this book anyway. Both culturally and personally, the author teaches us why we stumble so easily and then he reaches out and tells us how to begin the process of change for our relationships and communities. It doesn't matter if you are Christian, Jew, agnostic or atheist. If you have a concern for the direction of our families and our culture, if you have a history of troubled relationships, if you lack for male friendships, if you want to break the cycle with your children, (pick your own cycle -- you probably are perpetuating one or more) especially with your son, and equip them to soar in this world, you must read this book. This is not just another psycho-speak, self-help book. Buy an extra highliter. You'll need it.
A fantastic resource that should be read and studied and handed down from generation to generation.
I received this item before the anticipated delivery date. This makes a good book for a Men's Ministry study group, and also a good book for personal devotion, to help heal the wounds of growing up without a father, divorce, molestation, etc. I'd like to encourage men who have gone through some major suffering in their lives to read this book, and spend time in prayer and meditation. Be blessed!
