In Jacob's Shadow, Herbert Anderson uses his own story and the biblical story of Jacob to imagine new and more inclusive patterns of masculinity that balance power with vulnerability. With a new introduction, the book envisions alternatives to persisting expressions of patriarchy and toxic masculinity. Each chapter begins with an event from Jacob's life that foreshadows the struggles of men today. The topics explored include the following: Acknowledging Vulnerability Paying Attention Nurturing Making and Keeping Friends Learning to Grieve Sharing Power In a new era of thinking about gender, Anderson invites men to embrace a masculine humanity deepened by their faith in God.
