Understanding what it means to be male has never been more confusing. As more behaviours are called out for being patriarchal or toxic, how does a man navigate these choppy waters? Is there such a thing as healthy masculinity? Are there any good men out there leading the way?

In The Manual, Al Stewart sifts through the current debates and challenges facing men, offering practical wisdom and insights on how to live as a man valued by others. More importantly, he digs into what the Bible has to say about manhood and about how being a follower of Jesus is central to loving and serving others.

Combining decades of experience as a son, husband, father, friend and pastor, Al’s down-to-earth, no-nonsense, honest approach to life will help any man, young or old, who wants to use his life for good.
