Men serve.

Males self-serve.

Manhood today is not what it used to be, and Dondré Whitfield—veteran TV and film actor, social activist, husband, father, mentor, and relationship coach—is here to give men a much-needed heart-to-heart to define where they’re at on the Male vs. Man spectrum, and how they can become a true man of God who serves their families and communities.


Listen to the introduction.


gets misplaced.

Some men abuse the power they have. Some men grow up without healthy role models, and so they act like boys, but with adult consequences to their actions. Other men are caught in the shifting cultural ideas about manhood, unsure of how to make decisions or act as a man. To be sure, the role of men at home, at work, and out in the world is deeply misunderstood. But we can start correcting that by stepping toward a better vision.

It’s time for men

to level up.

Dondré Whitfield separates the men from those who are simply males. Men are healthy and productive servant-leaders who bring positive change to their communities. Conversely, males are self-serving, stuck in negative cycles, and bring chaos into their relationships and their communities. Male vs. Man is a playbook for men who want to level up. It will help male and female readers alike understand what real manhood is, based on biblical wisdom, as well as hard-earned lessons from someone who has been there.
