By: Larry Crabb

Men today have locked horns with their toughest issue: reclaiming the full potential of manhood. But in the midst of the excitement – the meetings, rallies, seminars, and high-fives – is something vital missing? What gives manhood definition and meaning? In The Silence of Adam, Dr. Larry Crabb and his colleagues, biblical scholar Don Hudson and counselor Al Andrews, offer a fresh look at how God designed men. They draw from neglected biblical data and their own professional experience to help us explore – manhood’s lost vision – the problems of masculine community – the power of mentoring relationships -The Silence of Adam deals thoughtfully and honestly with men’s ongoing struggles and exposes the difficulties they have in relationships. It presents the rich calling men have to reveal God in ways uniquely masculine.
