“Esto Vir, is Latin for ‘be a man’ and I suggest this is the central task of a man’s life. It seems obvious, doesn’t it? Yet the obvious is not always so clear. Nor is it easy.
We live in a time when, at least in the western world, there is increasing suspiciousness and distrust of boys and men.
As I offer you this book, I am convinced that for the mental and spiritual welfare of men, we must know what is our calling as men.
Why has God created us as men?
What can we as men offer to the world that women cannot?
How can we serve and follow Christ as men?”
Fr Paul W. Chandler
