About this item
Every day of your life, the choices you make determine the man that you are — and will become. What kind of man do you want to be? How do you want to be remembered? What kind of men do you respect?
These are serious questions and Matt is here to help you sort out the answers.
In his new DVD, The Man Talk, Matt Fradd lays out a vision for authentic Catholic masculinity and a plan for how to achieve it. Following the example of some of history’s greatest and wisest Christian men, he shows you how to build the strengths and practice the habits that will make you a true man of God: a man of courage and strength who lives for others, a man who is fully alive.
The need for such men has never been greater, but the obstacles we face have never been tougher. The world presents us with a conflicting vision of manhood: Instead of the pure, selfless love of the saints, we’re told to seek the pleasurable self-indulgence of pornography. We’re told not to give but to “take what we can get” — from women and from the world.
In fact, from when we were young we’ve been taught all kinds of “rules” that men are supposed to live by — rules that actually discourage authentic manhood. Matt reveals five of those rules, and shows you how the only way to become a true, fully alive man is to break each and every one.
Filmed before a live audience, mixes jokes and stories with theology and commonsense human experience to provide a positive, uplifting, and never-dull presentation that men of all ages can enjoy and profit from. Equally perfect for personal viewing or your parish men’s group!
"Matt Fradd gives us a vision of how to live Catholic manhood to the fullest: with humility, self-mastery, and — here's the big secret — abounding joy."
