Bestselling author and cultural commentator explores the history of masculinity, the rise of the "toxic masculinity" conversation, and the paradigm-shifting sociological evidence showing that Christianity provides a better blueprint--and better real-world outcomes--when it comes to solving the problem of toxic behavior in men.

How the Script for Masculinity Turned Toxic--and How to Fix It
"Why Can't We Hate Men?" asks a headline in the Washington Post. A trendy hashtag is #KillAllMen. Books are sold titled I Hate MenNo Good Men, and Are Men Necessary?

How did an ideology arise that condemns masculinity as dangerous and destructive?
Bestselling author Nancy Pearcey has a knack for tackling the tough issues of our day. A former agnostic, Pearcey was hailed in The Economist as "America's pre-eminent evangelical Protestant female intellectual." In this book, she takes readers on a fascinating romp through American history to discover how the secular script for masculinity turned toxic--and what action we can take to fix it.
We often hear that Exhibit A of toxic behavior is evangelical Christian men. But the social sciences tell a very different story. Studies find that family men who attend church regularly test out as the most loving husbands and the most engaged fathers. They have the lowest rate of divorce and--here's the real stunner--the lowest rate of domestic violence of any group in America.
The sociological facts explode anti-male stereotypes and show that classic Christianity has the power to overcome toxic behavior and reconcile the sexes. That's a finding that has stood up to rigorous empirical testing.

This book will equip thinkers and activists to challenge politically correct ideology and bring an evidence-based message of healing into the public square.
