Warriors, lone rangers, conquerors—these are the common images that come to mind when talking about men. But are those the only metaphors for Christian men? Using the story of Joseph from the Bible, Gareth Brandt shows how male spirituality reaches its height when it shows compassion to all people, beginning with those close to us, and finds meaning through participation in building God's commonwealth of love and justice.

"Throughout the book Gareth demonstrates a candid, humble, and wise approach that is backed by a solid intellectual grasp of the various disciplines he works with that make his book appealing to both young and old, academic or layperson, and to the macho-man or romantic. True to Gareth’s personality and theological convictions the book also lends itself well to be read in community. His supply of questions at the end of his work make the book a great spring-board for a book study or discussion group.
—Travis Barbour's Blog
"Brandt provides fresh perspectives on male spirituality, and his use of the Joseph stories in Genesis is particularly creative. Under Construction lends itself well as study material and should appeal to younger men."
