Publisher's Summary

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.

Not just for men

I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to reflect on their place in the world and their relationship with Christ. Though Brant addresses the role of men as Keepers of the Garden, this is not misogynistic book about man’s superiority or power.

Very good and helpful

It was a super helpful perspective realignment on what a man and a husband day-to-day focus should be when keeping his garden.

Grateful single mom of boys

Thank you Brant for another fantastic book! I gave it to both of young adult sons and thought I should listen too so I can talk to them about it. So much practical wisdom from a biblical perspective. Absolutely right-on about what we women want. Highly recommend to men and women. Looking forward to chatting with my kiddos about it. :)

Love it!

I found Brant on his podcast and had to read this book. Had a hard time putting it down. Such a plethora of information. I think this book is for everyone. I'm actually going to buy LOTS of copies to give out to my loved ones. God has blessed Brant with insight and wisdom and I'm so glad he is sharing it here.

Great book

makes one aware of need for improvement. Take it to a new level by reading the Book of Mormon and praying about it.

Got all Dads

This is a simple and at the same time very difficult book. It calls all men to account for their actions and inactions. We as Dad’s need to stand up!

The books us men need

I loved this book.
It’s a great reminder for us all on what really matters. If you need some new perspective or reminders of perspectives you might have left unattended this is for you.
This book is meaningful.
