Healing The Masculine Soul: God's Restoration of Men to Real Manhoodby Gordon Dalbey
In his groundbreaking book fifteen years ago, Gordon Dalbey identified the fact that men's souls have been torn between strength and sensitivity. Today, the situation is even worse.

In his groundbreaking book fifteen years ago, Gordon Dalbey identified the fact that men's souls have been torn between strength and sensitivity. Today, the situation is even worse. The politically correct crowd cries out for men to be more sensitive, to tame their masculine nature. On the opposing side, the media bombards men with "macho" images of violence and lust. Is it any wonder men are left bewildered about who they should be?
In this newly revised and updated edition of Healing the Masculine Soul, Dalbey claims that there's hope for restoration, hope for healing-because Christ has come to heal us. God is calling men out to a relationship with Himself and calling them out to authentic manhood. "Our task is not to curse our manhood, but to redeem it," he writes.
Gordon Dalbey's refreshing, comprehensive picture of God's design for the masculine soul dares men to be as God created them to be-not as society demands. Dalbey tackles the tough issues, including work, sexuality, marriage, and fatherhood.

I tried to like it but couldn't, I just found this book very hard to follow. It is very philosophical in nature and I couldnt relate any of that to my own experiences. I also feel that it was overlooked that men have different temperaments/personality types. Thus heavily promoting a key extroverted quality of "initiative" as being a desirable trait of masculinity is not feasible for everyone. Lastly I didn't like his style of writing that used a lot of old outdated words.
This book I highly recommend to all men especially if they are headed to fatherhood or are in the process. It enables us to seek and heal some of the issues from our past that used to be considered taboo to discuss in church. I have given this book out about a dozen times and all men enjoy it.
