Men are so busy doing so many different things. No down time-every day, every week filled with stuff. What society and church so desperately need, though, are men who embrace all God created them to be: men who long to follow God without limits and meet the needs of those around them without hesitation. To get there we need what Pastor James MacDonald calls "radical surgery" - a deep, probing exploration and reparation of all that it means to be a man.
In his definitive, bold voice, MacDonald calls men to be watchful, firm in their faith, strong, and loving. This isn't a call for bravado and bluster. It's a call for men to mix tender and tough, to be humble, to follow Jesus. It is a call to be leaders, men of God, husbands who are present and caring and strong. It is straight talk-no posturing or posing or beating around the bush- inviting men to redemption and restoration in their manhood.
