CBMW is thrilled to announce its tenth installment of Eikon with the release of the Fall 2023 issue. This edition of Eikon focuses on masculinity and features articles from James M. Hamilton Jr., Richard D. Phillips, Kevin DeYoung, Alexander Strauch, and Kyle Claunch.
Colin Smothers captures well the heart of this issue in his Editorial: “we believe fatherhood and masculinity are not only good, they are true and beautiful, which is why you will not find us apologizing for them in this issue. Instead, we promote fatherhood and masculinity, because when we promote these we promote human flourishing in their complements: motherhood and femininity.” We pray this issue encourages you to promote and uphold the goodness of fatherhood, masculinity, and their complements.
If you would like a print copy of Eikon, you can subscribe to receive each Spring and Fall issue. Digital copies (pdf) of the print edition are also available for $5. Links to each essay in blog format are provided below in the Table of Contents.
