Erik Synnestvedt clearly delivers the author’s cutting-edge work about why men dislike going to church. He matches voice to mood when Murrow discusses his belief that most churches today are female dominated, although led by males. Murrow believes churches cater to women when they should instead “embrace the masculine spirit.” Synnestvedt perfectly renders the author’s mandate: Mentor men; encourage them to make male friends, assume leadership roles, and show strength. Synnestvedt vividly describes why the author calls church today “velvet coffin Christianity.” He recounts what Murrow calls “churches’ spiritual thermostats”: confrontation, challenge, comfort, conformity, control, and ceremony. Jesus authorized only the first three. Murrow does not call men back to church, but “calls church back to men.” G.D.W. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2010]
