Is masculinity “toxic”?
That’s become today’s catchall charge against men. Books have appeared with titles like I Hate Men and Are Men Necessary?
How did the idea arise that masculinity is dangerous and destructive? Bestselling author Nancy Pearcey leads you on a fascinating excursion through American history to discover why the script for masculinity turned toxic—and how to fix it.
Pearcey then turns to surprising finds from sociology.
Religion is often cast as a cause of domestic abuse. However, research shows that authentically committed Christian men test out as the most loving and engaged husbands and fathers. They have the lowest rates of divorce and domestic violence of any group in America.
While domestic abuse is undoubtedly a pressing concern, Pearcey addresses it with compassion and sincerity. The sociological facts challenge negative stereotypes and highlight how Christianity can play a significant role in fostering healthier behaviors in men and fostering reconciliation between the sexes—an unexpected finding that has been substantiated through rigorous empirical testing.
