My endorsement of Malestrom by Carolyn Custis James
I had the pleasure of getting my hands on, and reading, Malestrom: Manhood Swept into the Currents of a Changing World. Here is my endorsement for her book:
Finding a crack in the door of patriarchy, which still patterns the life of both the church and the world, Carolyn Custis James swings it wide open, redirecting the gender conversation towards its rightful focus: the malestrom. Through careful biblical exegesis and an intersectional awareness of the actual social currents that daily sweep over men and boys, this book rightfully articulates a vision for men rooted in the imago dei particularly revealed in the life of Jesus Christ. The church is indebted for this resource for opening up a new set of questions at an accessible level, and for remembering that ultimately what makes something Christian is its ability to conform to the image of the Son.
