Behold the Man : A Catholic Vision of Male Spirituality (Paperback) (Harold Burke-Sivers)
About this item
One of the most unique books ever written for Catholic men. Both lucid and inspiring,Behold the Man is a powerful journey into the heart and soul of a man.
Much of the literature written for Catholic men focuses on topical issues such as fatherhood, virtue, sexuality, prayer, etc. Never before has a book presented a comprehensive picture of what Catholic male spirituality truly is. What makes Catholic male spirituality truly authentic? What distinguishes a Catholic man from a Protestant man? How does masculine spirituality compliment feminine spirituality?
These questions and many more are answered in this book. Unparalleled in its scope and depth,Behold the Man goes straight to the heart of Catholic masculine identity, drawing from Scriptural and magisterial sources that root male spirituality in a covenant relationship with God and the cross of Jesus Christ. It is when a man lives his spirituality from the cross that he is truly able to be himself—the man that God created and calls him to be.
It is within this context that Behold the Man explores male spirituality as it flows and draws life from the pierced heart of Christ. Like an intricate tapestry, this book weaves together the theological and practical as the author examines how a Catholic man is formed within the timeless struggle between sin and forgiveness, and the tension between truth and freedom that shape his manhood. No stone is left unturned. Whether you are married or single, a priest in a parish or a father in the domestic church, whether you are on fire for the faith or searching for answers, this book is for you!
This book will deepen a man’s experience of Christ where he will come to know the Lord intimately and personally. He will take his faith to the next level, and begin to live that faith with greater passion and conviction than ever before.Behold the Man is the new benchmark that serves as a platform for a more sustained discussion on the meaning of the Catholic man in the life of the Church and the culture.
