There is a crying need in the church today for men to be men. But competing visions for what a man is to be —some growing out of popular culture and others arising from flawed teaching in the church—are exacerbating the problem. 

Rev. Richard D. Phillips believes the problem and the inadequate solutions being put forward demand sound exegesis of biblical passages relating to masculinity. The Bible alone has the answer to what men are to be in the eyes of their Creator. 

In this book, Rev. Phillips provides this essential exegesis and issues a call to reformation in the evangelical church’s attitude toward the role of men in the family, the church, and society.

My role and my failing.


This book helped me realize not only my role was a Christian man but also helped me to see where I have failed in life as a man, as a husband and father. I'll be getting a few more copies as gifts.

There are a lot of things that I could say but one line stand out p.87 'I used to think that if a man came into my house to attack my wife, I would certainly stand up to him. But I came to realize that the man who enters my house and assaults my wife every day is me, through my anger, my harsh words, my complaints, and my indifference." Wow this is true. We, husbands, must look at our own hearts before we start complaining about our wives. Thank you!
