About Man of the House
On the one hand, our decision to start this podcast was incited by a desire to stay connected with Matt as he and his clan left the Midwestern plains of South Dakota to settle down in the beautiful woodlands of South Carolina.
But on the other hand—and perhaps more to the point of our podcast, we all began to feel a little disillusioned by the way that many Christians were dealing with and discussing issues related to biblical manhood and masculinity.
In some ways, the term “complementarian” left us wanting. Though we would still choose to embrace the concept, we’ve found that many who claim the label are actually living more like functional egalitarians.
For that reason, among others, it became a desire of ours to unapologetically contend for and explain a beautiful, comprehensive vision for true masculinity and femininity as God has revealed them to us in Scripture, in His creation, and in our hearts.
While issues related to this “thick” complementarity (as we might call it) pertain to both men and women, the aim of our podcast is to address men in particular, though many issues necessitate that we talk about both sexes more broadly.
We hope that sons, brothers, husbands, and fathers who listen to our show would submit to God by using their God-given masculinity and strength for the good of those around them.
