Product Description

"Every man on this planet should read this book - not to mention every woman who wants to understand the struggles, often unconscious, that shape the men they know.

                                                                                                            - Rabbi Michael Lerner

  • From maverick theologian Matthew Fox, ten archetypes to help men find their hidden spirituality.
  • By the author of Original Blessing (over 300,000 copies sold)

It's no secret that men are in trouble today.  Many, men, especially young men, are looking for images of healthy masculinity to emulate, but according to Matthew Fox, today's culture rewards reptilian behaviors like domination and aggression and represses men's natural desire for spirituality.  Open discussion and promotion of healthy male spirituality run counter to our cultural goals and ideals.  Fox contends that our crucial task is to open our minds to a deeper understanding of the healthy masculine than we receive from our media, culture and religions.

To help readers develop what he calls "the sacred masculine," Fox offers ten compelling metaphors and archetypes ranging form the Green Man to the multigenerational Grandfatherly Heart.  He also includes models of sacred marriage, showing how partnership becomes the ultimate expression of healthy masculinity.
