Beyond the Banter tackles two critical social issues: The fun and importance of male banter and the need to bravely get beyond it. Ten topics which are popular for male banter such as work, stuff and adventure are candidly unpacked from a male perspective. At the end of each chapter two levels of questions invite the reader to consider their own views on these subjects. The wider issues of faith, hope and community are also explored. Fraser makes a strong case for discussion within the safe harbour of a men's group and there is a section at the end of the book for this purpose. While this book is suitable for an individual exploring life and faith from a bloke's perspective, it is also a thoroughly road tested resource for encouraging meaningful discussion in a church Men's Group. ?
