Author Wes Yoder's words are humorous, yet beyond the sports and weather chatter and silence that characterize many male conversations there is brokenness. Emptiness. Shame. That's not funny.
For Yoder, the cure is not about planting the flag for one's manhood by going out hunting or by joining another men's movement. Rather, Yoder calls disappointed, disenchanted and lonely men to authenticity. Here, he issues a compelling invitation to men to begin a new way of living. When men engage in spiritual friendship and honest conversation, they begin to find joy, healing and their true identity.
