Recommended Reading: "Behold the Man: A Catholic Vision of Male Spirituality"

Date published: April 10, 2017

Known as the “Dynamic Deacon,” Burke-Sivers, MTS ’00, travels around the country and around the world speaking at conferences, retreats, missions, high schools and youth ministry events. His areas of expertise in marriage and family life, the sacraments, male spirituality, evangelization and more are reflected in his latest book Behold the Man: A Catholic Vision of Male Spirituality.

Behold the Man explores Catholic male spirituality, explaining how it differs from Protestant male spirituality as well as how it complements female spirituality. Burke-Sivers investigates what it means for a man to live an authentic spiritual life.

“Deacon Burke-Sivers draws from Scripture and the teaching of the church to encourage men both to ‘man up’ as the heads of their families and share their faith in their households and in their marketplaces,” said Father John McCloskey in his review of the book in the National Catholic Register.

A unique, comprehensive exploration of Catholic spirituality for men, the author explores Catholic male spirituality as it is rooted in a covenant relationship with God and the cross of Jesus Christ.

“[B]e prepared for what is ultimately a hopeful picture of men putting on the armor of faith, hope and charity in a meaningful and serious way,” McCloskey said.

Burke-Sivers holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Economics and Business Administration from the University of Notre Dame, and a Master of Theological Studies Degree from the University of Dallas. He also co-hosts a weekly broadcast on Mater Dei Radio and has co-hosted several series on EWTN Television.

This book is available electronically ($11.67) and in paperback ($15.26) on ignatius.com.
