"Such manliness can only be achieved by men. Nothing in your list is beyond non-christians. That is to say - all men are capable of the virtues it espouses - whether some of them are all that important (or a virtue, or even manly), is another…"

"Two Christian movies, Fireproof and Courageous, both define a man (a husband), a real Christian man down to a tea. Since I came across these movies, I have attempted to imitate such manliness. Such manliness can only be achieved by the grace of God.…"

"To be a good Christian Man means to be the very best you know to do at the time - and trust God for the outcomes - It's an active faith - Give God your best and God will guide you or bless what you choose!"

"Well, I know a lot of secular men, so that's probably close enough... that, and studies masculinity across cultures, informally.  _Most_ of what I encounter about masculinity is by nonbelievers.  We could certainly discuss what that…"
