The Man Issue

In the last decade, a number of books have suggested that America has a man crisis. Men are increasingly absent from the home, the workforce, the church, and society. As Pentecostals, how should we address the man crisis? What does it mean to be a husband, father, friend, church member, and social influencer? That is what this issue of Enrichment sets out to investigate.
