Reclaim the Adventure of Manhood
Men are a hot topic. Meetings, rallies, seminars, and books are encouraging men to reclaim their lost masculinity and to become the men God designed them to be.
In the midst of the excitement, something vital may be missing. Do men know what defines their manhood? Do they grasp exactly what God has called them to become and how that calling may be unique to them as men?
In The Silence of Adam, Dr. Larry Crabb and his colleagues, biblical scholar Don Hudson and counselor Al Andrews, offer a fresh look at how God designed men. Drawing from neglected biblical data and from their professional experience, the authors suggest an understanding of manhood that does more than inspire men to assert their masculinity and slap each other on the back.
The Silence of Adam deals thoughtfully and honestly with mens ongoing struggles, and exposes the difficulties they have in relationships. It presents the rich calling men have to reveal God in ways uniquely masculine. And it summons men beyond their paralyzing fear of failure to bold risktaking action, deep spirituality, and full-hearted living. In a day when men are asking tough questions, Crabb and his colleagues supply whats been missing beneath the excitementa clear picture of who men are, whats gone wrong, and what men can become.

WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID ABOUT THIS BOOK:
"There is something unique going on with men right now that is becoming a ground swell. As usual, Larry Crabb is one of our best guides. Sure in his instincts, he gets to the center of things."
"The Silence of Adam offers men a fresh approach in defining their own maleness, stirring a passion for Christ in the middle of ongoing difficulties. If you are willing to speak into the mysteries of your personal chaos and darkness, The Silence of Adam will open new vistas in your search for intimacy and strength with God."
Kenneth W. Ogden, Ed.D
"Biblical! Informative! Encouraging! More than another self-help book or challenge to follow some formula for success, this brings a fresh perspective on men-who we are, why (and how) we struggle, what it means to be mentors and how we can be the real men that God intends us to be."
Gary R. Collins
"True to his track record, Larry Crabb has done it again. The Silence of Adam will rock some boats and challenge men at their core to become like Jesus Christ. Read it. LIVE IT! and LEAD!"
"Before he calls us to simply break the awful silence of Adam, Larry asks us to listen to our lost dreams, to our fathers, to our brothers, but most of all, to our God. With our stories restored, we become free, as men, to realize our own best dreams anew."
"The Silence of Adam combines keen psychological insight with profound biblical wisdom. It is a realistic call for men first to be godly, and shows how everything else a man should be will follow. This book is good news for men, for the women and children who love them, for the church, and for contemporary society."
With sensitivity and directness, Crabb, Hudson, and Andrews invite men to explore
