Product Description

Review

" Alan Medinger is one of the true sages of the Christian ex-gay movement. His life has been blessed by a hard-earned wisdom. In "Growth into Manhood" the reader is given the chance to learn what Medinger knows about the qualities of character that define a mature man, about the practical steps a man can take to grow into his fullest potential, and about the paradoxical truth that, in the end, real manhood is ' something we give away.' " -- Joseph Nicolosi, Ph.D., National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality
" A terrific book loaded with fresh insights and practical encouragement for the man struggling to move into the fullness of his manhood." -- Bob Davies, Executive Director, Exodus International-North America

From the Inside Flap

A breakthrough plan for males to re-enter the world of men.
What happens when a boy grows physically into an adult male but misses some of the experiences and relationships that help form complete manhood? Alan Medinger writes for such men and for those who care about them.
Within the context of his own release from homosexuality and his growth into "confident and comfortable" manhood, Medinger offers hope to others. For homosexually oriented men, such growth is an essential but often overlooked step in the process of healing. This ground-breaking study could well change many lives.

Format: Paperback
The book is written by a Christian author, and the fundamental issue is that only through a relationship with God is there any hope for change. I thought that the book was practical, helpful, and very relevant, not at all "preachy" and dealt with some very controversial issues but those that are pertinent to men struggling with homosexuality. The book is written as a starting point for a journey out of homosexuality and the reasons for why someone considers themselves to be homosexual and also the motivation for change is clearly articulated and has the ability to speak straight into someone's life.

I found this book very useful in my first attempts to move away from Same Sex Attraction (SSA). The book focuses mainly on DOING the things men do (not necessarily referring to fishing or bear hunting!) to move further into manhood. I personally found this approach very useful.
Medinger gives an explanation of what qualities men have from a more spiritual point of view which I thought was good and this provided me with some (not all) the answers to the question "What is a man?". Is a man a big muscly guy with a hairy chest and 5 women on his arm as common Western images seem to portray? Or is a man a person with qualities different to a female which serve him in the role of being father, protector and the person that gets to do the scary things like take the spider outside? Your personal answer probably lies in your roots (hopefully).
The author being Christian, the book has a spiritual theme throughout with an idea that connection to God is an important part of healing. I would advise potential Jewish buyers that the book is readable although I did feel uncomfortable with the odd paragraph that talked about relating to Jesus and also with Christian commentary on quotes from The Old Testament. Otherwise, the book is readable and definitely worth reading!
Thank you Alan Medinger!

Coming out of homosexuality is never easy I have been out of it for 5 years and I found this book to be excellent, very well written and a must for anyone wanting to find wholeness in Christ after leaving homosexuality, he has made a difficult subject humorous and educational. He is a real blessing to those who struggle.
