Brant Hansen, author of The Men We Need--God's Purpose for the Manly Man, the Avid Indoorsman, or Any Man Willing to Show Up, joins the show today. Hansen, who hosts a morning radio show syndicated on 200+ outlets across the country, writes:"I'm here to answer a simple (but not simplistic) question: what are men supposed to actually do? This book is about a big vision for manhood. We've lacked that vision, and all of us: men--women, and children--are hurting because of it. The vision is this: we men are at our best when we are 'keepers of the garden.'"Hansen--whose voice you may recognize from the MediShare commercials on WFIL :)-- elaborates in the book how just like Adam was charged with being keeper of the Garden of Eden, so men are to provide for and nurture their families first & foremost...and in the process, everyone around benefits as well. He is not against things sometimes associated with being manly (physical strength, outdoors-type activities, etc), but his challenge is to men--starting with himself--to serve the Lord first and care for his wife and children, in whatever ways that needs to happen. Hansen writes in a humble and humorous manner & provides much-needed (and Biblical) perspective.In addition to his writing and radio endeavors, Hansen also works for CURE International (based in PA)--top-notch surgical hospitals run by believers which help kids with treatable conditions and share the gospel in the process.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
