The Church's Masculine Maturity Crisis: Toward a Biblical Counseling Paradigm for Engaging Emerging Adults
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis explores the issue of masculine maturity as defined by Scripture and recognizes the growing maturity gap between the current generation of leadership and the current Millennial generation, particularly the subset group of emerging adults. The goal of this thesis is as follows: to provide a paradigm for biblical counseling of emerging adults that brings the counselor and the counselee together as biblical men, in a counseling relationship, in order for the older generation to give biblical wisdom and guidance to the younger generation, with a view toward biblical unity, spiritual growth, and a bridging of the wisdom and maturity gap that exists between the generations. With this goal in mind, counselors will be equipped to help emerging adult young men in their sphere of influence to take hold of biblical wisdom, employ it for sanctification, and ultimately to grow more like Christ as they grow in biblically mandated masculine maturity.
