We continue our series on power by talking with author and pastor Nate Pyle about how our inherited misconceptions about power distort our vision of masculinity. Our vision of masculinity is wrapped up in loads of inherited misconceptions about power, and in this episode we talk with about it.
Much of what the evangelical church has called “biblical manhood” and “biblical womanhood” is actually cultural accommodation to toxic ideas of what it means to be male and female.
We talk with Nate about recovering a vision of masculinity that contains the power of love, vulnerability, intimacy, and connection.
