A breakthrough plan for males to re-enter the world of men.
What happens when a boy grows physically into an adult male but misses some of the experiences and relationships that help form complete manhood? Alan Medinger writes for such men and for those who care about them.
Within the context of his own release from homosexuality and his growth into “confident and comfortable” manhood, Medinger offers hope to others. For homosexually oriented men, such growth is an essential but often overlooked step in the process of healing. This ground-breaking study could well change many lives.
Alan Medinger, former executive director of Exodus — North America is the founder and director of Regeneration, one of the oldest ex-gay ministries in the United States. A popular speaker for ex-gay conferences, Medinger writes a newsletter and has appeared on many shows, including The Today Show and The 700 Club.
“Alan Medinger is one of the true sages of the Christian ex-gay movement. His life has been blessed by a hard-earned wisdom. In Growth into Manhood the reader is given the chance to learn what Medinger knows about the qualities of character that define a mature man, about the practical steps a man can take to grow into his fullest potential, and about the paradoxical truth that, in the end, real manhood is ‘something we give away.’” — Joseph Nicolosi, Ph.D., National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality
“A terrific book loaded with fresh insights and practical encouragement for the man struggling to move into the fullness of his manhood.” — Bob Davies, Executive Director, Exodus International-North America
