EP31: How Jesus Redefines Manhood (with guest, Nate Pyle)

Looking back, many of us guys grew up with a version of what it means to "be a man" that was impossible to live out. To make matters worse, these cultural ideas about manhood are often adopted by the American Church, leading many to view our cultural ideas about manhood as falsely being biblical concepts of manhood. This of course, leads to all sorts of issues-- both for men, and women.

In this episode of That God Show, BLC and MPT sit down with author Nate Pyle to discuss his new book, Man Enough: How Jesus Redefines Manhood. They cover all sorts of ground in a short time, so you won't want to skip downloading this episode!
