The Toxic War on Masculinity

The Toxic War on Masculinity

Nancy Pearsey joins Carl and Todd to discuss her important new book, The Toxic War on Masculinity: How Christianity Reconciles the Sexes.

Books have appeared with titles like I Hate Men and Are Men Necessary? Mainstream news organizations publish articles like "Why Can't We Hate Men?" T-shirts are sold with messages like "So Many Men, So Little Ammunition.” And Christian men, in particular, are being singled out despite social science data indicators. When did the script against masculinity become so toxic, and what effect is it having on men today? 

Thank you Baker Publishing Group for providing three giveaway copies ofNancy Pearcey's book for our listeners! And congratulations to our winners: Adam P. from Raleigh, NC, Michaiah S. from Huntsville, AL, and Cathryne S. from Fuquay Varina, NC!
