THE BOOK

It is amazing today that the very concept of manhood is being challenged while the perception of fatherhood has been taken for granted. In other words, men have lost sight of man’s original purpose, and the concept of manhood has become vague. Similarly, a new generation of the male human has arrived with little or no realization of what manhood truly involves.

Somehow this new generation has been birthed with little revelation of boundaries and standards that distinguish them as men and qualify them as fathers. Regardless of the time passed or the ground lost, men must again be introduced to their measure of rule and their sphere of influence. Every man must realize that manhood is not a title and fatherhood is not an achievement.
- PREFACE
Endangered Masculinity draws attention to the need to restore to the male-man the original understanding of manhood, while exposing the hidden fact that when the man is out of place there will always be confusion. 

This is a spiritual reality which is validated by the fact that God created mankind to rule and the male-man to lead.  Every man has been anointed with a king on the inside of him.  The question is: Will man become the king or just remain a man?

THE CONVERSATION

From the beginning to the present men have been missing. Men are missing in homes today. Men are missing out in the lives of their children. Men are missing in the church and sometimes the work-place as well. When it comes to our communities today, men are missing as a result of violence and crime. Although there are many more reasons why men are missing, the real question is: “Where are the men?” If men are missing, they still are somewhere. In reality, they are somewhere else because it is evident they are not where they are supposed to be. This is not a new challenge. The absence of men has been a reality throughout the generations. The greater challenge today is whether men can be found, and restored to their rightful place in the communities of life. 
The writer of Hebrews makes it clear that Jesus is the only person able to represent the Father in the earth. The point is made that Jesus has been appointed the heir of all things, but more importantly is the fact that everything was made through him. Then a revelation is shared for us to meditate on. The Son has the responsibility to sustain everything by the power of His word. In short, Jesus is the source of all creation. Because He is responsible for what He has created, He has the responsibility to sustain it.
The word opportunity is defined in two ways. First, it can refer to “a favorable juncture of circumstances.” An opportunity also involves “a good chance for advancement or progress.”  The combination of these two definitions reveals that an opportunity occurs under the right conditions or circumstances while providing the possibility to advance. If a man is to take advantage of opportunities, he must prepare in advance.
