The Dignity of Manhood by Gbile Akanni is a book that explores the concept of manhood from a Christian perspective. Bro Gbile argues that manhood is not about power or dominance, but rather about responsibility, service, and love. He challenges men to live up to their full potential as husbands, fathers, and leaders.
The book is divided into three parts. The first part, “The Nature of Manhood,” explores the biblical definition of manhood. Akanni argues that men are created in the image of God and are called to be stewards of creation. He also discusses the importance of male leadership in the home and in the church.
The second part of the book, “The Challenges of Manhood,” looks at the many challenges that men face in today’s world. Akanni discusses issues such as pornography, sexual abuse, and the pressure to succeed. He also offers practical advice on how men can overcome these challenges.
The third part of the book, “The Promise of Manhood,” looks at the hope that is available to men through Christ. Akanni argues that men can find true fulfillment and purpose in their lives by following Jesus. He also discusses the importance of men being involved in the church and in their communities.
The Dignity of Manhood is a well-written and thought-provoking book. Akanni’s writing is clear and engaging, and he provides a wealth of biblical and practical insights on the topic of manhood. The book is a valuable resource for men of all ages, and it is sure to challenge and encourage readers to live out their full potential as men.
