The Men We Need

Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Have we gotten manhood all wrong?

The world needs real men. But here's the problem: While we know what men are
not supposed to be, it's not clear to us what masculinity looks like when men are at their absolute best.

Into our cultural confusion, Brant Hansen paints a refreshingly specific, compelling picture of what men are designed to be: keepers of the garden. Combining depth and humor, he calls for men of all interests and backgrounds (including avid indoorsmen like himself) to be ambitious about the right things and to see themselves as protectors and defenders of the vulnerable, with whatever resources they have at their disposal.

The Men We Need is witty, challenging, bracingly honest, and perfect for any man who wants to know "Why am I here?"--and is ready to show up.


"Brant Hansen has done it again--this time with a funny, punchy book on manhood. Full of hard-won wisdom and simple, biblical truths applied across the spectrum of the masculine experience,
The Men We Need is the book we need for our confused cultural moment."--Jared C. Wilson, assistant professor of pastoral ministry and author in residence at Midwestern Seminary; author of Love Me Anyway

"This is not only the book every man needs, it's also one every woman should read. In a time when everyone is asking, 'What does it really mean to be a man?' Brant Hansen gives a compelling, insightful, and deeply helpful response. I read this book in one sitting."--
Holley Gerth, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Powerful Purpose of Introverts --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Brant Hansen is an author, nationally syndicated radio host, and advocate for healing children with correctible disabilities through CURE International.

He’s won multiple “personality of the year” awards for his work on his offbeat and quirky radio show which airs on more than 200 stations. His podcast with his friend and radio producer, Sherri Lynn (“The Brant and Sherri Oddcast”) has been downloaded millions of times.

He leverages his radio platform to advance the work of CURE International, a global ministry of hospitals and programs that offer healing for children with correctible disabilities.

His first book, Unoffendable, prompted a national discussion on the idea of forgiveness, and our culture’s embrace of self-righteous anger.

His second book, both provocative and very personal, and will be released in November of 2017: Blessed are the Misfits: Great News for Those Who Are Introverts, Spiritual Strugglers, or Just Feel Like They’re Missing Something. In this book, Hansen addresses his own, and many others’, inability to “feel God’s presence”, and how God might Himself feel about that.

Brant speaks to groups/conferences/churches when his schedule allows.

He has written for CNN.com, The Washington Post, U.S. News and World Report, The South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Relevant, and numerous other outlets on matters as varied as public policy, culture, sports, Asperger’s Syndrome, and faith. He’s been a game inventor, fronted a modern rock band, still dabbles in singing and songwriting.

He’s traveled extensively throughout the world for CURE and other groups, including multiple trips to CURE’s hospital for women and children in Afghanistan.

He has been married for 27 years to Carolyn, and they have two grown children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book. Can't put it down!
By Michael on November 16, 2022
What an amazing book to apply to your everyday life. This book reminds me of Dr Tony Evans book, Kingdom Man. To me, Kingdom Man teaches you your spiritual calling as a “man of God”. The Men We Need teaches you how to be the man God created you to be, but with less scripture in my opinion. If your heart yearns to follow Jesus…get this book for you and other men in your life.
