Rise Up, O Men of God: The Men and Religion Forward Movement and Promise Keepers

Cover
Mercer University Press, 2002 - 312 Seiten
"L. Dean Allen analyzes both groups' constructions of masculinity and social ethics in relation to the family, the church, and a prominent social issue. Evangelical Christian leaders designed both organizations in response to their alarm at men's absence from evangelical churches, and they sought to increase men's participation in churches and to improve society as a whole by their efforts. Each group faced important social changes during its era such as new economic realities, women's activities, and perceived moral crises. Despite their similarities as groups for evangelical Christian men only, MRFM and PK developed contrasting constructions of masculinity and divergent social ethical calls for action."--BOOK JACKET.

Seite 15 - Those of us who passed through the last great industrial depression will never forget the procession of men out of work, out of clothes, out of shoes, and out of hope. They wore down our threshold, and they wore away our hearts. This is the stake of the churches in modern poverty. They are buried at times under a stream of human wreckage. They are turned aside constantly from their more spiritual functions to "serve tables.
