The Christian radio talk show host asked the well-knownwomen's ministry leader the question, "So what do you think about the statementthat men in the church have been feminized?" Her immediate response was, "Itotally disagree. Men in America have not been feminized at all...they have beenemasculated. Men don't feel a need to be more like women...they just have losttheir identity as men."
This book begins with the true story told by awashed up minister whom God forgave, healed, restored, and reenlisted in hisservice. The real story lies, however, with a few men who, discontented withthe detachment of men in their church and inspired by the Holy Spirit,discovered a pathway to reengagement as God's man in this hour ... or maybe realengagement for the very first time.
