Pleasant words to hurting men are sweet to their soul because they don’t hear them often. They sound like a foreign language. That’s why we gravitate toward tough words to build and support the myth of masculinity. To our detriment, we ignore that pleasant words can build us up, and we don’t realize how much we need to hear words that make us get up from our pits of discouragement. When moments of displeasure knock us down, sweet words are all we need to keep us going in the face of pain.
We need pleasant words for confidence; we need sweet words of acceptance and love; we need kind words to restore our lives just as bones need calcium for strength. We have digested too much of the sour grapes of unpleasant words. We need a breath of fresh, healing wisdom blown into the broken areas of maleness to rejuvenate our minds and set us free from addictions. The rich honey embedded within the honeycomb is sweet. But, for some of us, all we have known are the bitter words planted within the depths of our soul. And to ensure that no one hurts us again, we lock up our souls and isolate ourselves from reality. An unhealthy word creates bitterness that lodges in our hearts. On the other hand, pleasant words are like a balm to our emotions and comfort our fragile ego.

FALSE ROADS TO MANHOOD by Frank Chase, Jr is a must read. This book is for every person that is capable of being real with himself concerning the concept of what truly makes a man a man. This book will force you to deal with many of the urgent needs that every man will eventually have to face as they make their way through this journey that we call life. Chase did an excellent job weaving these concepts with Biblical scripture, and as you read this book your inner man will continue to be fed in the process. Frank Chase, Jr., is ahead of his time as a writer. I believe that this book needs to be personally put into every man's hand so that he may have the understanding required to make the transition.

His message to men is compelling; face your crippling father-wounds, build honest relationships with other men, and take your shame to Jesus for your true Father's healing love.

“We need not look far to see the repercussions of sons and daughters growing up without fathers, or grown girls grappling in marriages to grown boys, both searching for their fathers, or a semblance of a father, for affirmation of themselves. For every man and woman in search of themselves, the lost, given away, taken away, or abandoned parts of themselves should stop everything they are doing, hole up in a quiet place with “False Roads…”, read it and re-read it word for word, from cover to cover. You will emerge a new person.
“In this painfully good work, Frank reminds us all of the redemptive power of the Cross. Frank becomes vulnerable, stripping himself of male egotism and pride’s false coverings, revealing true manhood, imploring both men and women alike to lay down their burdens of brokenness, shed their cloaks of guilt and shame and rise up from the ashes in the beauty of wholeness and the beauty of holiness.”
