How do we build our sons to be tough but not arrogant, mannered but not soft, imaginative but not lazy, bold but not hollow? Using Douglas Wilson’s book, Future Men Tyrell and his guest, Tommie van der Walt from Imprint, discuss the responsibilities and challenges of raising strong, virtuous sons, contrary to the effeminacy and sentimentalism of contemporary culture. As we look to Scripture for patterns of masculinity for our sons, we find them manifested perfectly in the life of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the one who set the ultimate pattern for friendship, for courage, for faithfulness, and integrity.
