9781578951017: Jacob's Shadow: Christian Perspectives on Masculinity

"For Many today, being a man still means to keep our distance, ignore pain, overcome fear, swallow our tears, keep our options open, and maintains an upper hand whenever we can. These are the old myths that continue to whisper and shout. Because those messages are so powerful, they are not easy to ignore.

In Jacob's Shadow, Herbert Anderson uses his own story and the biblical story of Jacob to explore the struggles and contradictions men experience in their journeys to faithfulness in God.
