The world needs real men, real bad. And there are all sorts of conflicting ideas and messages about what a "real man" is (and is not). Is a real man one who hunts, loves sports, grills meat, fixes cars, and climbs mountains? Sure, sometimes. But that's not really the point of being a man and it's not the purpose for which men were made. Into our cultural confusion, Brant Hansen paints a refreshingly specific, compelling picture of what men are made to be: "Keepers of the Garden." Protectors and defenders. He calls for men of all interests and backgrounds (including "avid indoorsmen" like himself) to be ambitious about the right things and to see themselves as defenders of the vulnerable, with whatever resources they have. Using short chapters loaded with must-have wisdom and Brant's signature humor, The Men We Need explains the essence of masculinity in a fresh, thoughtful, and entertaining way that will inspire any man who dares to listen.… (més)

At a time where men and masculinity are practically being vilified, radio show host Brant Hansen shares some insight on what it really means to be a man, at least from a biblical point of view. But that doesn't mean this book holds nothing of import for women. More than simply what to look for in a man, or what to help our significant others or sons strive to be, some of what Brant discusses in this book can easily be applied to women, too.

I think that what sticks out to me the most is the idea that passivity isn't as victimless as we might think. By living a life of lethargy, with no ambition, we can fail to be who God wants us to be for others out there. As Brant says, no one is exactly like me, with my life, my experiences, and my placement in the world; if I don't do what I was meant to do, who will? It does make me re-think how I spend my time.

While, overall, I didn't necessarily connect with this book as much as I did Brant's previous books, that's not surprising, given the topic. Still, I'm really glad I read it, and especially that I listened to the audiobook, as Brant's humor comes out all the more when he's speaking the words. I've long enjoyed Brant's humor and greatly appreciate his wisdom and insight as well. I recommend this book for men and women alike, though I'd imagine it makes a lot more sense for Christ-followers. Not that it's a requirement, by any means, and is especially not for Brant's podcast, in his podcast, The Brant & Sherri Oddcast, which I also recommend. ( )

You Know Enough to Do This

Brant Hansen has written books about misfits, human nature, anger, and The Men We Need is just as radically important. Why Radically? Because, as Brant says, it is counter culture. Brant’s writing is simple, easy to understand, and approachable. Intentionally starting a conversation about the definition of masculinity, and who men are supposed to be. None of what Brant writes is new. It is common knowledge. It is written clearly in the Bible. The problem is that it is rarely put into action, it is deliberately misunderstood, and our world is actively against men. Men who are willing to protect others, men who are actively caring for the garden, men who are loyal to God. This book is not about guilt or accusations, but learning from experience. With plenty of funny antidotes, awkward relatable stories, and Lord of the Rings quotes to laugh about. Though this book is for men, women need to read this book too. To know what a man does, to support loyal men, and to raise future men. This is a book that needs to be talked about, and shared. We could all use a few more keepers of the garden. ( )
