Why Abusive Men Repudiate True Manhood: Letter to an Abusive Husband

Today, November 25, is The International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.  I do not normally blog on Sundays, as faithful readers know.  But this is a topic worth addressing, especially because I am on the record as being for manly leadership in home and church.

How Fathers Are Like NBA Stars

If you’re familiar with Anthony Davis, you’ll know that he was the first pick in the 2012 NBA draft.  This may have had little bearing on your life; if so, we will excuse you–though I would encourage you to keep an eye on Jeremy Lin this year.  I think he’s going to have a great [Read More...]

On the “Dad Moms” Phenomenon

Almost a year ago I blogged on the Tide “Dad Mom” commercial.  I had been watching Tim Tebow carve somebody up and buried myself in the New Yorker issue I was reading during breaks in the game.  Suddenly some dude pops up on the television and announces himself as a “dad mom.”  He had my full attention.

Be Strong and Courageous (and Not a Boy-Man)

I recently had the opportunity to see The Bourne Legacy, which is way better than the critics had made it sound and totally worth seeing for adults.  The critics, by the way, often don’t like a movie that skews traditional, as Legacy does.  It was a fantastic action film filled with the intelligent intensity you [Read More...]

Every Man Needs a Man Cave

Okay, so that’s not really true.  Let’s amend it, then.  Lots of men “want” a man cave.
