"The perfect conversation for men with little to say can be summed up in eight words: 'Can you believe the weather at that game?'"
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, addressing the problem is not about planting the flag for one's manhood by joining a mass movement for men, nor is it necessary for men to "sire a herd or shoot a moose to authenticate their manhood." Yoder calls disappointed, disenchanted, and lonely men to authenticity. To rediscover joy. To find satisfaction.
In Bond of Brothers, men will discover:
Being present to comfort, to love, to listen, to take a step toward Jesus together in our brokenness…that is the essence of friendship, Yoder says. When we invite Jesus into our shared brokenness, he can do the work of remaking what is left of the mess we have made of ourselves. Begin a journey toward authenticity and your true identity here!
