Masculine Mandate, The: God's Calling to Men
Now available in paperback (hardcover out of print).
In this book, Richard D. Phillips cuts through the cultural confusion, highlights God's calling for men, and encourages readers to join him on a journey of repentance and renewal. Beginning in the Garden of Eden, he draws foundational teaching for men from the earliest chapters of God's Word. Christian men today need to examine their hearts and embrace their God-given role. Only then will they be able to recognise their high calling, and by God's grace, serve faithfully in whatever context God has placed them.
"Egalitarian and chauvinistic thinking have corrupted our ideas about godly manhood. With boldness of heart and pastoral wisdom, Rick Phillips leads us back toward biblical manhood - masculinity grounded in the cultural mandate, the cross, and the ordinary means of grace."
- Eric C. Redmond, Senior Pastor, Reformation Alive Baptist Church
"... Rick Phillips lays out the biblical mandate for men to work and keep the world around us. This book carefully avoids stereotypes and legalistic rules, while unfolding with clarity and practical simplicity the biblical vision of men..."
