What makes a man?


This is a question many men in our society today do not feel equipped to answer, because they were never initiated into manhood themselves. They do not know how to pass on authentic manliness to their sons, so boys get stuck in unending adolescence. Everyone suffers from the resulting crisis of male immaturity, and we see its effects everywhere in our society.


Leaving Boyhood Behind shows how we can actually do something to address this crisis. Author Jason Craig, cofounder of Fraternus, a Catholic mentoring program for boys, walks through each stage of initiation into manhood, helping readers understand:


    • What rites of passage are and why they are necessary for men
    • Christ’s own rites of passage and initiation
    • What it means for a young man to put away childhood
    • The importance of belonging vs. isolation in the life of men
    • The important role both mothers and fathers place in initiation
    • Discipline and the masculine identity
    • Living the ultimate rite of passage, and much more

    “This book is an invaluable resource for all Catholics who care about the intellectual, physical, and spiritual development of the next generation of men.” — Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers, author of Behold the Man: A Catholic Vision of Male Spirituality

     

    About the Author

    Jason Craig writes from a small farm in Western North Carolina. He is a convert to the Catholic Church and holds a master’s degree in theology from the Augustine Institute. He is co-founder of Fraternus, a fraternal organization that unites the men of a parish in brotherhood and then provides the framework for them to mentor the next generation. Craig is also the editor of ThoseCatholicMen.com and founder of St. Joseph’s Farm, which hosts retreat that helps men and their sons experience the joys and wisdom of traditional skills, crafts, and farming. Craig works alongside his wife, Katie, and their six children (five boys and one girl). He is also known to staunchly defend the claim that his family invented bourbon.
