New Man Magazine featured an article about what's wrong 
with most men's discipleship efforts:
"We know that as go the men, so go the marriages, families, churches, communities and culture. Today these institutions are in crisis because men are in crisis...Men are largely disengaged, unchallenged,under-led, discouraged, and disconnected.  READ MORE

Real Men Are Like Players in a Band
"God can show Himself as He really is only to real men. And that means not simply to men who are individually good, but to men who are united together in a body, loving one another, helping one another, showing Him to one another. For that is what God meant humanity to be like; like players in one band, or organs in one body." - C. S. Lewis
WHAT IS A REAL MAN?
The Apostle Paul tells us how he knew he had crossed over into manhood. In 1 Corinthians 13: 11 he writes, "When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child, BUT WHEN I BECAME A MAN, I did away with childish things."

What a man surrenders to will determine his outcome as a man. Real manhood steps away from childish things. Real manhood means we courageously step up to whatever challenge, temptation or battle we face and do our duty, knowing and delighting in who we are in Christ.

"Jesus is the Vision for True Masculinity"
This is incredibly helpful, must-read article on biblical manhood by that will challenge you and encourage you!

"We need a vision for masculinity. We need a model. We need to see a man rooted and secure in his calling. A man with no crisis of identity--constantly trying to prove himself (Matthew 3:17). One who lived his life with passion and persistence. A man whose masculinity is worth imitating. Jesus is the vision for true masculinity. READ MORE
Apparently, he was in the elevator one day when a young woman came in. Proctor tipped his hat at her. She was offended and said, 'What is that supposed to mean?' The pastor's response was: 'Madame, by tipping my hat I was telling you several things. That I would not harm you in any way. That if someone came into this elevator and threatened you, I would defend you. That if you fell ill, I would tend to you and if necessary carry you to safety. I was telling you that even though I am a man and physically stronger than you, I will treat you with both respect and solicitude. But frankly, Madame, it would have taken too much time to tell you all of that; so, instead, I just tipped my hat."
Here's a wonderfully illustrative story of what it means to be an authentic man from the life of Samuel Proctor, Pastor of Harlem's Abyssinian Baptist Church:
Biblical Manhood as Chivalry
The Gospel 4 Men
"The power of the gospel comes in two movements. It first says, 'I am more sinful and flawed than I ever dared believe,' but then quickly follows with, 'I am more accepted and loved than I ever dared hope," 
- Tim Keller
One of our deepest concerns about the manhood crisis in our culture, and even in many churches, is the "War on Boys". Dr. Christina Hoff Sommers, a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington DC, has done extensive research and writing about what's happening to boys and young men in our culture. She is one of the keenest observers of this alarming trend and in this video clip she offers some practical ideas about how to help our boys to keep and enhance their masculine identity. Dr. Sommers rightly observes, "If boys are in trouble, so are we are!" Read More
