The Case for Patriarchy

$21.95

About this item

For two thousand years, Christianity has taught, with startling specificity, that married men are patriarchs who should relate to their wives as Christ relates to His Bride, the Church. Yet as feminism swept across Western society in recent decades, our understanding of patriarchy became corrupted, and men have been astoundingly swift in their forfeiture of their God-given patriarchal rights and duties. 

While The Case for Patriarchy articulates a position that is provocative in our day, it's a position that was without controversy for millennia. Why? Because Christians viewed patriarchy as a theological necessity according to the dictates of Christian Scripture and Tradition.

In these powerful pages, Timothy Gordon argues that Christ did more than establish a clerical patriarchy — an all-male priesthood. He also created a lay patriarchy of male householders who act as priests, prophets, and kings of their families. The supplantation of this patriarchy with a feminist “matriarchy,” Gordon argues, has proven to be the most devastating of all the subversive revolutions waged upon Christendom by the radical, secular Left.

Gordon demonstrates that the Word of God single-handedly foils all the toxic plans of modern radicals, and centuries of Christian theology in the East and West have reinforced it. He pulls the curtain back on the “waves” of feminism that have swept over Western culture, and he refutes the methodology they employ to undermine men. Finally, he examines what the restoration of the Christian vocation should look like, as well as explores the patriarchal virtues that all men should exercise in their home and society. 

Here is a book that boldly pushes back on the narrative that the patriarchy is dangerous to women and to society. Indeed, it is a book that unapologetically seeks a restoration of Western society based on patriarchal order, where justice and the common good can triumph.

"Christianity recedes when patriarchy is rejected. In this trumpet blast of a book, Tim Gordon draws from Scripture, sacred Tradition, the Doctors of the Church, the social sciences, psychology, and literature, and recovers a whole new way of understanding the entire social order—which turns out to be the old way. As red pills go, The Case for Patriarchy is deep crimson. Brace yourself."

"With uncommon insight and courage, Gordon enjoins his readers to rout cultural revolutionaries by resurrecting the wisdom of the ages. "The Case For Patriarchy" is "man-splaining" at its very best."

"Male and female are the two genders that God has created to complement each other and thus be mutually dependent on each other. He rightly points out that the breakdown in this complementarity is the fault of concupiscence on the part of men and women."

Now my favorite book
An absolute genius look at the history of feminism and the need for a post-feminist world. Gordon articulates many of the thoughts and feelings men have but have been conditioned to suppress. I recommend this book to all men and women, married or unmarried. It is a guiding light to true happiness.

Must reading for marriage prep
This is an excellently researched and well written book on a controversial topic that few Christians (even priests) discussed. Kudos to Mr. Gordon for courageously taking on this subject. This should be recommended reading for anyone preparing for Christian marriage.

A Book For Our Time
A must read on the topic. Tim provides an insight other authors on the topic of feminism just don't voice. The very first section on wife as boss is so relatable to a global audience. He also describes the steps of a color revolution and provides examples of how modern feminism has influenced our contemporary culture including sports and the two income trap. I've only read chapter 1 as of right now, but in his thesis he provides a clear diagnosis and solution to the social issues that have arisen in the past 60 years. Excited to read the rest of it including the central role of patriarchy for Christianity and the historiographical overview of the origins of feminism.

Well Researched Hard Truths
Never had a book challenged me so much and yet actually changed (some) of my opinions at the same time. Give it a chance to change you mind, as well. Mr. Gordon’s research is impressive. The Case for Patriarchy is well written and an important read for all faithful Christians.

How making the case for patriarchy results in destroying the case for feminism
In an ordered and chronological yet very compelling fashion, Mr. Gordon explains the origins of feminism. He then lays out the case for the perniciousness of such and it's deleterious effects on marriage and the family. He then proceeds to state the case for patriarchy most importantly in marriage and the husband as priest,prophet and king supported by Scripture and Catholic Tradition. Importantly he points out the complementarity of man and woman in marriage and the important roles that each carries out to achieve happiness of husband, wife and children. Using Holy Scripture he does point out that wife is to submit and be obedient to her husband in all things UNLESS they be contrary to the commands of God. This of course upsets the pro feminist crowd. However they tend to ignore that the husband MUST love his wife as his own body and as Christ loves His Church. This is a great treatise for Christian men to reassert their role in their marriages and as heads of their households.
