Manhood Swept Into The Currents Of A Changing World
by Carolyn Custis James
"Carolyn Custis James calls for a Christ-centered understanding of 'male,' where men and women are equal image bearers of God, truly one flesh." —Peter Enns, Abram S. Clemens Professor of Biblical Studies, Eastern University
Carolyn Custis James shows how our culture's narrow definitions of manhood are upended when we consider the examples of men in the Bible and Jesus' gospel.
Carolyn Custis James thinks deeply about what it means to be a female follower of Jesus in a postmodern world.
"A view of manhood that insists the top spot belongs to a male, in any context, is difficult to reconcile with Jesus' words. That's how hard it is to be the kind of man who follows Jesus."
"Writing this book has left me as disturbed about what is happening to men and boys today as I have ever been about women and girls. I hope anyone who reads Malestrom will end up deeply concerned about the message the church is offering men and boys."
"More than ever men face an onslaught of expectations, both from the culture and the church, about what it means to be a 'real man.'" —Rachel Held Evans, author of A Year of Biblical Womanhood and Searching for Sunday

Malestrom shows how patriarchal cultural patterns are both detrimental to men and profoundly unbiblical. It's a daunting task, but Carolyn Custis James makes it work.
A lot of the issues evidenced in the biblical people in Carolyn’s book lie caught, sometimes unawares and sometimes quite intentionally, in power struggles and lusts to control.
