Off the Shelf 140 – Sam Guzman
This week Sam Guzman, aka The Catholic Gentlemen, joins me to cover his book The Catholic Gentleman: Living Authentic Manhood Today. We take at look at what it takes to carry our roles as virtuous men in a society that pushes back against us. It’s time for authentic manhood to see a revival. Sam Guzman tells us how to make that happen!
From the publisher Ignatius Press
What it means to be a man or a woman is questioned today like never before. While traditional gender roles have been eroding for decades, now the very categories of male and female are being discarded with reckless abandon. How does one act like a gentleman in such confusing times?
The Catholic Gentleman is a solid and practical guide to virtuous manhood. It turns to the timeless wisdom of the Catholic Church to answer the important questions men are currently asking. In short, easy- to-read chapters, the author offers pithy insights on a variety of topics, including
- How to know you are an authentic man
- Why our bodies matter
- The value of tradition
- The purpose of courtesy
- What real holiness is and how to achieve it
- How to deal with failure in the spiritual life
