Behold the Man: A Catholic Vision of Male Spirituality

(No reviews yet) Write a Review


Lucid and inspiring, Behold the Man is a unique exploration of Catholic spirituality for men. Much of the literature written for Catholic men focuses on topical issues such as fatherhood and sexuality. While this book does not exclude these subjects, it is the first to present a comprehensive picture of Catholic male spirituality.

What is authentic male Catholic spirituality? What distinguishes it from Protestant male spirituality? How does masculine spirituality complement feminine spirituality? These questions and many more are answered in this book.

Drawing from Scripture and Church teaching, the author roots Catholic male spirituality in a covenant relationship with God and the cross of Jesus Christ. He demonstrates that when a man embraces the cross he is truly able to be himself—the man that God created and calls him to be. Behold the Man can deepen a man’s experience of Christ and help him to know the Lord more intimately.

"I know of no better presentation of masculine spirituality that balances authentic theology with practical application for the lives of real Catholic men." —Tim Staples, Catholic Answers

"A highly readable book. A marvelous work for any man striving to live an authentic spirituality, which also addresses the major hot button issues of today." —Father Brian Mullady, O.P., Author, Preacher, EWTN Host

"The biggest crisis facing the Church today is the crisis of authentic manhood. This book addresses virtually every issue that a Catholic man will face, especially the interior life." —Jesse Romero, Catholic Evangelist and Radio Host
