How To Escape Culture’s False Manhood And Become A Man with Mark Batterson

It’s pretty clear in today’s culture, masculinity is under attack, femininity is under attack, and there seems to be more and more confusion about gender roles when it comes to work, family, and lifestyle. In this episode, Mark Batterson and I attempt to redeem manhood by bringing clarity to the more traditional marks of a man.

For those of you who don’t know Mark, he’s the pastor of Washington DC’s largest church—just walking distance from the White House, Capitol Hill and the National Mall. Today, we’re going to be discussing his new book titled Play The Man: Becoming the Man God Created You To Be.


In our conversation, Mark and I discuss what it means to be a provider, a protector, and an honorable man to a women in today’s culture. But more than that, we discuss how to properly view gender roles and masculinity around passion, profession, and purpose.

Our discussion is helpful, it’s relevant, and it’s important. So grab your romantic novels, your new-age politics, and your flannel shirts and toss them in the fireplace because we’re going to show you what real manhood looks like on today’s episode of the Podcast.
