Can faith and fitness converge to create stronger Christians? Join our esteemed guests Drs. Christy Snyder, Michael Bailey, and Jon Parker as we explore the fascinating concept of "Muscular Christianity" and its impact on church and society.
We'll dive into the historical context of Muscular Christianity's emergence in mid-19th century England and its eventual spread to the United States. Learn about the fears of middle-class men becoming too effeminate during the Industrial Revolution, the feminization of the church, and the implications of muscular Christianity on gender roles.
Don't miss this engaging discussion as we examine the tensions within muscular Christianity in contemporary society and the dangers of muscular, masculine Christianity when taken to its extremes.
