Peaceful at Heart Study Guide

While there are plenty of books by men, for men, on the topic of “Christian masculinity,” these books generally fail to address men’s propensities for violence and the traditional inequity between men and women, often endorsing inequity and sanctioning aggressive behavior as an appropriate “manly” response to conflict. 

Peaceful at Heart cuts through this conversation by offering a uniquely Anabaptist Christian perspective on masculinity. The vision of masculinity presented in this book is more peaceful, just, caring, life-giving for men, and more sensitive to women and children than both traditional images of masculinity and the hyper masculine images promoted by contemporary popular culture and wider evangelical Christianity.

The study guide below is a companion to the book Peaceful at Heart by Dan Epp-Tiessen and is published in partnership with Mennonite Central Committee to facilitate conversations about masculinity, church and our Christian faith.

A Kindle version of the Peaceful at Heart book is now available with a downloadable PDF study guide below.
