I like Don Miller. Always have. I’ve read all his books, and I like his conversant style.
Yesterday, I held up Michael Irvin as an example of a Christian advocate in the battle against homophobia. Today, Mr. Miller holds up perhaps the preeminent example of masculinity, leadership, class, and style in the NFL, former Colts Head coach Tony Dungy.
Miller kept it short and simple, without naming names:
In an age where a few celebrity pastors are projecting an immature masculine image, a guy like Tony Dungy reminds us of what a good man looks like. He looks like a sober, mature, thoughtful, strong, disciplined person who brings peace into chaos. It would be easy for some of us guys to get led astray by false teachers who use shame, guilt and ridicule to make themselves feel more manly, but these guys are just covering up their own insecurities. Here’s Coach Dungy talking like a man.
Well said sir, well said. To watch the Dungy video and hear what Coach Dungy had to say, click here.
P.S.: Scholars should also take note of Mr. Miller’s approach to blogging: “Before it becomes a book, it all gets tested here. Forgive the rough patches. Here is the writing in process.” Blogs are the new best places to get free, instant peer-review feedback from a diversity of opinions.
