Redeeming Men

Religion and Masculinities

by Stephen B. Boyd (Editor)W. Merle Longwood (Editor)Mark W. Muesse (Editor)


Contributors to this book--historians, biblical specialists, theologians, ethicists, and scholars of comparative religions--examine the relationship between religious tradition and manhood. The essays cover a broad range of topics--from the dynamics of power in shaping masculine identity, to the role religion plays in shaping masculine identity, to the experience of myth, ritual, spiritual discipline, and community in the lives of men.
