Masculinity as a Communication Process: Stability and Change in Evangelical Christian Conceptions of Masculinity

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The concept of masculinity in Evangelical Christianity is ever-changing. On the other hand, one could look at the concept of masculinity in Evangelical Christian circles as being stagnant, even in the face of social pressures to reform. This paper argues that both are true. Evangelical Christian concepts of masculinity constitute an ideology in keeping with William Brown’s (1978) definition and therefore are a communication process. This paper examines the discourse in popular Evangelical Christian writings on masculinity and shows that there are competing and divergent definitions and discussions of masculinity within that discourse. Competing notions of the masculine, far from destabilizing the structures which constitute them, work together as a deviance compensating cycle allowing the ideology to adapt, remaining coherent in the face of social critique.
