Men and the Economic Downturn

When a recession hits a nation, the effects are felt at all levels of society.  Relationships, governments, and institutions are all subject to radical change.  And no institution is more subject to being deeply affected by a recession than that of the family, and specifically the role of a father.  How do men fight for their role as provider when the times are so economically difficult?  On today’s program, Dr. Moore discusses the effects of a recession on the role of family’s provider, with his guests Michael Gerson and Brad Wilcox.  Through the hard times and the easy, the role of provider displays the character of God to a culture ready to give up on those who are most in need.
