Man Enough challenges the idea that there is one way to be a man. The masculinity that pervades our church and culture often demands that men conform to a macho ideal, leaving many men feeling ashamed that they’re not living up to God’s plan for them. Nate uses his own story of not feeling “man enough”, as well as sociological and historical reflections, to help men see that manhood isn’t about what you do, but who you are. It’s not about the size of your paycheck, your athletic ability, or your competitive spirit. You don’t have to fit any masculine stereotype to be a real man. In our culture and churches more thoughtful, quieter, or compassionate personalities, as well as stay-at-home dads, are often looked down upon; and sermons, conferences, and publications center on helping men become “real men”. This pressure to have one’s manhood validated is antithetical to Gospel living and negatively affects how men relate to each other, to women and children, and to God. Man Enough roots men in the Gospel, examines biblical examples of masculinity that challenge the idea of a singular type of man, and ultimately encourages men to conform to the image of Jesus—freeing men up to be who they were created to be: a son of God who uniquely bears His image.

In this book, one of the leading contributors to the growing debate about men, masculinities, and sexual politics, Victor J. Seidler, criticizes the Enlightenment coupling of white, heterosexual masculinity with "reason." He argues that in modern society, masculinity can never be taken for granted. Men must always prove that they are "man enough" to cope in the "correct" way with the problems and challenges of everyday life. Seidler believes that men have to break this chain of obligations to the Enlightenment notion of masculinity. Through engaging with menÆs diverse relationships with their bodies, sexualities, emotional lives, feelings, and desires, Seidler explores ways of affirming masculinities while critically engaging with the power that men have in the wider society. The book is also a contribution to antisexist politics. Seidler is interested in taking on those forms of menÆs politics that find it difficult to engage with menÆs power and society and also those who take it for granted that male power is normal and natural. He seeks to recognize both the power that white, heterosexual masculinities have in shaping forms of philosophy and social theory while at the same time recognizing that masculinity cannot be simply defined as a relationship of power.

Why has the U.S. never had a woman president? With Hillary Clinton engaged in a historic campaign that could see her becoming the first woman elected president of the United States, the national conversation about gender and the presidency is gaining critical momentum. Commentators have fixated on the special challenges women candidates for the presidency face: endless media scrutiny about what they look like, the clothes they wear, the deeply sexist attitudes and beliefs that keep people from believing a woman is capable of serving as Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces. But gender has always been a crucial factor in presidential politics, especially in recent decades, as the Civil Rights, womens and gay rights movements have transformed the social landscape and presented a major challenge to traditional white male power and privilege. In Man Enough?, Jackson Katz puts forth the original and highly provocative thesis that in this cultural context presidential campaigns have become the center stage of an ongoing national debate about manhood, a kind of quadrennial referendum on what type of manor one day, womanembodies not only our ideological beliefs, but our very identity as a nation. Written in an engaging style that will appeal to general readers, political experts, and activists alike, Katz explores some of the major political developments, news events and campaign strategies in key elections in recent history. Ranging from the election of the former Hollywood actor Ronald Reagan in 1980 through the re-election of Barack Obama, and extending his analysis into the 2016 election season, Katz zeroes in on how the very notion of what it means to be presidential is linked closely with evolving ideas about manhood.
