520    Many believe that religion plays a positive role in men's 
       identity development, with religion promoting good 
       behavior, and morality. In contrast, we often assume that 
       the media is a negative influence for men, teaching them 
       to be rough and violent, and to ignore their emotions. In 
       Does God Make the Man?, Stewart M. Hoover and Curtis D. 
       Coats draw on extensive interviews and participant 
       observation with both Evangelical and non-Evangelical men,
       including Catholics as well as Protestants, to argue that 
       neither of these assumptions is correct.Dismissing the 
       easy notion that media encourages toxic masculinity and 
       religion is always a positive influence, Hoover and Coats 
       argue that not only are the linkages between religion, 
       media, and masculinity not as strong and substantive as 
       has been assumed, but the ways in which these relations 
       actually play out may contradict received views. Over the 
       course of this fascinating book they examine crises, 
       contradictions, and contestations: crises about the 
       meaning of masculinity and about the lack of direction men
       experience from their faith communities; contradictions 
       between men's religious lives and media lives, and 
       contestations among men's ideas about what it means to be 
       a man. The book counters common discussions about a 
       "crisis of masculinity," showing that actual men do not 
       see the world the way the "crisis talk" has portrayed it--
       and interestingly, even Evangelical men often do not see 
       religion as part of the solution.
