What is masculinity for? What does it look like? Why is it important?

In this fascinating talk, Dr. Mango explores the four archetypes of masculinity and explains how they are to be lived out by Christian men. "Men in their physical identity must embrace heroic self-sacrifice, because it is masculinity's job to protect life and be expendable. Jesus says: 'Unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.' (John 12:24)"
