* Helps marriages and families * Helps young adults choose proper spouses
Many have lost sight of what it means to be a man, what it means to be a woman. A book is needed to teach men to be men and for women to be women of grace who recognize the different roles for men and women.
Four decades ago Aubrey Andelin wrote: MAN OF STEEL AND VELVET as a guide to masculine development. Millions of copies sold. Carl Sandberg spoke of the Steel and Velvet qualities of Abraham Lincoln as the secret of his greatness. A real man must have steel qualities. He must also have gentle qualities combined with his toughness or iron strength of character.
The late Andelin wrote: “Every man can develop the steel and velvet within him, and by so doing develop his manhood.” Based on Christian ethics as taught in the Bible, Man of Steel and Velvet helped millions of men and women gain a clearer understanding of true masculinity. While not a Catholic book, Catholic men and women in search of a counterpart book for Catholics asked Fr. Robert J. Fox to write such a book. The result was: MASCULINITY: THE GENTLE MAN.
This book is a guide to make a man who is a leader, a good provider, protector and a devoted husband, worthy of the respect of his wife and children. The author, with wit and humor, tells what it means to be a man, how to handle children, win the hearts of both wife and children. Speaking of the morality of conjugal love, division of household duties and roles, this book, digested and implemented, will make a difference in marriage for both husband and wife, and bring happiness to the entire family.
MASCULINITY: THE GENTLE MAN will help the young, single man become the man he ought to be in his maturity. It will teach men and women how to relate to each other. It will help both single men and women know how to look for a good spouse. This will spell success for good family life.
