Tired of Kissing Frogs? Even the most capable and intelligent women are sometimes struck stupid when it comes to relationships with men. Maybe you're like Cinderella, who thinks that only a man can rescue her; or perhaps you are like Little Red Riding Hood, always attracted to "bad boys"; or maybe you find yourself simply settling, like Rapunzel, because you don't believe you can do any better.

AS TODAY POSTMODERN CULTURE seeks to redefine biblical morality, relationships have taken a serious hit, even within the Church.

How does this redefinition affect men? From boyhood, to the teenage years, and on through mid-life and retirement, Whisker Rubs describes what men  in each of these stages of life are dealing with and the challenges they face. In some instances, men feel they cannot measure up to the expectations placed on them at work, in their marriages, or in their spiritual life. Fortunately they are answers, and these come together in the final section, "Reclaiming Masculinity."

Whisker Rubs is filled with anecdotes, stories, interviews, and studies to bolster the thesis that men desperately want to have a blueprint for their masculine journey.

In the last couple years, I've read a number of books on the spiritual and social development of boys & men, from both secular and Christian authors, and I have to admit, this books is one of the best I've found. It seems to have a lot of similarities with "Wild at Heart: Discovering the Secret of a Man's Soul" by John Eldredge (if you liked that one you'll like this one) and does a great job of exploring the heart and soul of men and boys and the factors that influence a boy's spiritual development.

"Boys don't become men in the presence of women. They become men in the presence of other men. They become men when they test themselves, when someone pushes them to the limit of what they think they can do. In a perfect world, dads do this pushing. If dad isn't around, or he isn't up to the task, other men must step in...As dads or as mentors to other boys we don't have a roadmap. We often don't know the way and stumble in the dark. We hope we're doing the right thing but aren't sure. Then unexpectedly, we see something n our boys that confirms we're doing something right." (page 18)

He goes on to describe the stages of a man's life and how his role, as well as the way he views himself, changes over time. Over all I believe this is a very valuable book for anyone seeking to understand the development of boys into Christ-like men.

For other good books (Christian & secular) on male development try Raising a Modern-Day Knight: A Father's Role in Guiding His Son to Authentic Manhood by Robert Lewis, The Wonder of Boysby Michael Gurian, King Me: What Every Son Wants and Needs from His Fatherby Steve Farrar, and Raising Cain: Protecting the Emotional Life of Boysby Kindlon & Thompson.

When I saw "Whisker Rubs" on Amazon.com I thought it would be a book along the lines of Rick Bundschuh's "Passed Thru Fire" an excellent book on raising boys;it's that and more!

Mr. Otis starts out talking about how a boy develops his masculine gender identity and all of the struggles a boy must deal with along the way. He encourages women/moms to understand that men & women really are different, we're not the same!

Next he goes into manhood and its various stages as well giving lots of wise counsel to men in their journey of godly manhood and again, asking women/wives to understand us!

Mr. Otis also writes about how both our secular & Christian Cultures are very anti-male and how that can be fixed! I really apprecaite how Mr. Otis talks about how valuable men are, not putting us over women, but saying men have value just as women do. I've seen too much devalueing of men in our secular & Christian cultures.

Great book that talks to the heart of the masculine identity crisis that many young boys face today. Society tells young boys to sit down, sit still, be quiet and conform and that is just not the way we are made. The authors do an excellent job of affirming choices dads make to raise men and not just male members of society.
