I'd give it ten stars if I could.
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.

When I first started reading this title, I thought it would be little more than a lengthy discourse on meaningless psycho-babble regarding men and their many emotional shortcomings. It began slowly, but as I continued following the author's progression of thought, I understood that many of his concepts and ideas ring true. While he is a little too light on Scripture and a little too heavy on psychological theory, he still makes many good points for Christian men in today's society.

There are helpful insights here -- it will prove to be a good read for many Christian men.

Wow ... if there were a six-star option I would use it here. If you are a man, read this book. If you are a wife or mother or in any other way love a man, read this book.

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.

I bought this book for my husband, but I was the one who ended up reading it. I was intrigued by the insight into men and think every woman should read this book in order to pray for their husbands and son's more effectively. I believe this author has keen insight and wisdom straight from the Father's heart and he truly understands the male's soul. What a tremendous book that contains so much healing. Truly this should be read by men to set them free from the lies of society that try to dictate what a man is and read by women to gain greater insight into the men in their lives. Great book and I highly recommend it!

We are all wounded by our fathers in some way. When you are ready to get real about what being a man is meant to be... A true man. An authentic man. A Real Mans' Man. This book will help both sexes because it will give sound wisdom & workings of how a man thinks, what makes him too "clingy & wimpy-codependent", or more often than not, too macho & the "lone wolf.

This book changed my life. I agree with a pastor friend of mine who was the head of Teen Challenge for the state of California when he said the following: This is THE MOST IMPORTANT BOOK written to MEN outside of the BIBLE".

Spoiler: This is a in your "Get in YOUR FACE & GET REAL" type book. Long before Dr Phil made it a popular style of counseling.

IF you are still happy playing the all the petty little games-DON'T READ IT, cause you're definitely not at "your personal
bottom" yet.

When you want to understand your father better, or if you just want to understand yourself better, this book is the "swith" that will turn those dark places into well lit rooms! I have given several copies away * if I had $1000,000 that i could do so, I give them to every man I meet.

Ladies, if you need to understand your husband, dad, brother, uncle cousin-this book can be your "Light Switch" into why they are SO NOT EVER going to be "more like you".

This is an absolutely amazing book. It should be required reading for young men and all Godly men. Too often today men are pulled in a million different directions in terms of what makes a "real man". Hollywood's macho version is unrealistic and the call for a "sensitive man" leaves men more like women than anything else. This book helps men understand their own brokenness and the need for healing before we even address areas of sexuality, leadership, and child rearing.
A fantastic resource that should be read and studied and handed down from generation to generation.
