Men and the Hobbies They Love

The brand-new CBMW men’s blog, Manual, is pumping out great content. I really appreciated this post by Kyle Worley on men and their hobbies.

The Gospel Is for Baby Bear: On Sesame Street and Gender Confusion

From the front line of the gender battles I bring you…<drumroll>…Sesame Street. You may be thinking, Seriously? You’re going to blog on a kid’s show and be all super-theological about it? It’s Sesame Street, for crying out loud! Well, dear skeptical friend, I hear you. I did not imagine that in my work for CBMW I [Read More...]

The Gospel and Gronk: Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski & Boy Men

So the New England Patriots’ season ended surprisingly about a month ago as the team fell to the hated Baltimore Ravens. They did so without their tight end Rob Gronkowski, a touchdown machine. But that’s not all “Gronk” is: he’s a world-class partier. His exploits are well-documented; he sometimes introduces himself as “Yo Soy Fiesta,” [Read More...]

What Is Manhood & Womanhood? Two Interviews on Gender & the Gospel

Got a couple of resources for you here, both dealing with manhood, womanhood, marriage, and the gospel of Jesus Christ.

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. Let’s address this awful subject this way: if [Read More...]

Can You Be a Good Pastor and Good Father?

This is a tough question.  And frankly, we evangelicals don’t always present the best example of an affirmative answer. I’m thankful that Barnabas Piper, son of John Piper, has addressed this question and given some practical advice on the matter.  I’m in ministry, and I want to take testimony like this to heart.  It is [Read More...]

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...]
