This #BoyMom is Inspired
Nancy Pearcey's characteristically distinguished research integrity doesn't fail to deliver. She demonstrates through our Western literary history of changing public attitudes that led us to the current culture war between the sexes. Tracing the evidence from a dramatic shift brought on by the Industrial Revolution to the damaging ideas of Darwinism, a clear pathway is revealed to have had detrimental impact on our relationships today. Pearcey illustrates that the goal doesn't have to be in focusing on the power struggles to address the conflict and inequality but by acknowledging God's original design for equity and partnership between men and women. The idea that both are made in the image of God pushes back against the current constructed narrative to reconcile us for the common good. As a mother of two young boys, Pearcey's book offers a clear and positive approach to address toxic masculinity in our society. She is presenting a book as resolute and affirmative fuel for mothers and fathers to unite in rejecting the dominate culture's toxic message to our sons that they are doomed to be toxic themselves. I couldn't put it down.

I'm a Christ-follower, passionate about moving in truth/love and intellectual rigor through all things faith + art. A professional Dance Artist and fancying myself an amateur Christian Apologist, I’m committed to moving in the liminal space between catastrophic reverence of God and a quaking humility that intentionally keeps the tremors of Grace close at hand.
