‘A formidable answer to an age-old question: How can a man make himself tolerable and useful while accepting and expressing his primordial maleness. The searching and aggressive urges to conquer what needs subduing, protect the vulnerable, fix what is broken, compete and risk what demands to be risked in himself and the world? The author’s message is set in the Christian tradition without being controlled by its ideology. Eldredge believes that institutions can oppress a man’s heart and keep society from benefiting from his fierce desire to love, do good, fight evil, and go beyond the limits. The exceptional writing and ideational balance (and a sensitive interpretation by Kelly Dolan) make this a compelling effort to integrate the hero’s gritty nature with the public good.’ T.W. © AudioFile Portland, Maine –T.W. © AudioFile Portland, Maine
