What does it mean to be a man in today's society?

What does it mean to be a man in today's society-by God's standards?

James Dobson, one of America's foremost authorities on the family stakes a clear path through the confusion between the world's definition and God's definition of what constitutes a man.

In this classic work on men's roles and their responsibilities, Dr. Dobson gives men information they can use to build a home with the traits and qualities that God meant every home to have:

  • Stability and leadership without dictatorship

  • A solid system of family finances

  • Children who know God and feel good about themselves

  • Wives who feel supported, enabled, and loved

  • Meaningful times of togetherness and mutual encouragement

A clear-headed, straight-from-the shoulder resource that belongs on every family's bookshelf.
