Description

In this cultural moment of discussions about sexual harrassment and assault, DeVon Franklin, bestselling author of The Wait and well-respected Christian leader, speaks out frankly and openly about why men act badly and how to change their behavior. Society encourages a strange dynamic: it says "boys will be boys," "that's just locker room talk" and "sow your oats," but when men are unfaithful, abusive, or destructive, the same society that encouraged them to indulge their bad behavior now wonders, "how could you have done something like that?" In The Truth About Men, DeVon Franklin, the bestselling author and Hollywood producer whom Oprah Winfrey has called "a new kind of spiritual leader for our time," speaks out about why men act badly and what we can do to help bring change, both on a personal and a societal level. He argues that the same discipline that drives men to excel in their professional lives needs to be applied to their private lives. He uses the analogy of a dog that needs to be trained as a means to explore why bad behavior persists and what can lead men to act against their vows, their integrity, and even their character. He argues that learning to tame the beast is an essential remedy for men who desire to be good men, and lays out a plan for how men can deal with the beast within them: by acknowledging it, holding it accountable with the support of other men, learning self-control, and submitting to God. He also provides practical solutions for how both men and women can encourage better behavior and how we, as a society, can expect better. This groundbreaking book is an informative, inspiring, and compelling look at a problem we are all wrestling with and offers a way forward for men and women alike.
