Quote from What Every Man Wishes His Father Had Told Him


No wonder. Permanent adolescence is relentlessly romanticized and shamelessly encouraged in practically all popular entertainment and advertising. Manhood itself is often strongly discouraged, while society’s fundamental values are systematically being feminized. Trends such as those have given rise to an epidemic of fatherless homes and irresponsible thirty-something males. Countless young men are addicted to entertainment, living in a culture already shaped to a very large degree by movies, video games, and fantasy role-playing. It is frankly no surprise that real men are in such scarce supply. Never has there been a more urgent need for wise and diligent fathers.

Quote from What Every Man Wishes His Father Had Told Him


In stark contrast to the biblical pattern, young men in our culture today begin to manifest adolescent characteristics (such as rebellion, depression, and chronic cynicism) earlier than ever—and they remain immature longer than ever. Some, it seems, never do become true men. In fact, many become fathers without ever really becoming adults.
