Confessions of a Closed Male

As a woman reading this book, I got a close-up view of the struggle men have trying to bear the heavy armour of their masculinity. Kenneth Chance, in this incredibly honest and wise tale of Eric Crane's transformation, shows how one man learned to throw off that armour and open up to the possibilities of self-love and intimacy in relationships. Men are hurting because their rigid definition of masculinity-- strong, silent, independent, resourceful, even heroic-- is so difficult to measure up to. And divorce, loss of a job, or death of a loved one often finds them without the emotional tools to cope and heal. They end up angry, bitter, isolated, and confused. This book faces those issues head-on and lights the way on a path to Love. I gave my first copy to a dear man in my family who is in pain, and now I am re-reading my second copy. The insights are profound.

The Eric Crane Mirror

Some believe that the literal, infallible Word of God is an ongoing dialogue between The Supreme Being and each human. In Eric Crane's case, the conversation begins loudly with a wrenchingly dramatic opportunity to confront his own mortality. Once Eric's attention is focused, God then leads him on an epic journey of soul healing through manifestations of Divine Truth in the form of interesting and wise spirit guides.Eric's struggle in overcoming misconceptions about power, control, dependency, and fear provides a raw look at the way most of us western cultured males have been conditioned to think. As Eric unlocks the shackles of male image, he becomes the creative spiritual human he was meant to be. The journey to freedom for Eric is far from a straight path. It has twists and turns, progressions and setbacks, all contained in a spellbinding plot.I eagerly awaited the publication of this book. In 1996, I received my own "cosmic 2 by 4" in the form of diagnosed acute cancer for which there was no known cure. Pumped full of morphine, I was facing a choice of living less than a week or months of high risk experimental chemotherapy that had never been used on an adult human. As with Eric Crane, God sent a guide to assist me in making my decision to heal and live. My guide visited me often during those difficult months of chemo. Today, I'm not just surviving, but thriving, both on physical and spiritual levels. You should know that my guide is flesh and blood. He is also this book's author, Kenneth Byrd Chance.If you're male, read this book for inspiration and personal growth. If you're female, read this book for understanding and insight. If you're not consciously seeking any of those things, read this book: It's a great story from an incredibly gifted author.

Confessions of a Closed Male

A Definate page turner! I couldn't put it down. This is a book everyone should read to further their growth in all areas of life. I give it 5 stars!

Confessions - a book for men that offers insights to women

A spiritual crisis is what Ken's novel addresses and men typically face them alone. The compelling story of a man whose life falls apart gives readable, understandable insights that we see mirrored on shows about angels and spiritual guides but many men feel are only available to others. The book is a fast read but full of encounters and events to which we can all relate. Yet it's done so well that by the time the story ends, I was left feeling that I had just taken a course from a master teacher. For anyone feeling alone on the path, this is a good choice. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
