The world would be better off without men—especially men with “toxic masculinity.” While the culture might tell you this is true, Dr. Nancy Pearcey takes the pervasive premise of toxic masculinity to task in her tour de force The Toxic War on Masculinity and joins Hank Hanegraaff to discuss why masculinity is not the problem that it is presented to be. Pearcey’s combination of thorough historical analysis and compelling research makes this a conversation that will radically alter the way that you view gender roles—showing how Christianity reconciles the sexes and exposing the war being waged against masculinity today for what it truly is—toxic.
