Announcing the Official Catholic Gentleman Book

March 15, 2019

If you’ve been following me on social media, you’ve no doubt seen me make mention of the fact that I’ve been working on a book for some time now.

Today, I am now pleased to announce that The Catholic Gentleman: Living Authentic Manhood Today will be available for purchase on April 22, just in time for Easter. I hope you’ll pick up a copy for yourself and the men in your life.

This book has been a labor of love and I am truly pleased to finally see it published. Deo gratias!

The world today is changing rapidly. What was once settled is now questioned, and old traditions are discarded with reckless abandon. What does it mean to be an authentic man in such confusing times? What, if anything, does the Catholic Church have to offer to men today about living a life of true manhood and virtue?

The Catholic Gentleman is a solid and practical guide to manhood and holiness in the modern world. It offers the timeless wisdom of the Catholic Church to the many questions of men today on this important issue. In short, easy to reach chapters, you’ll learn:

  • How to know you are an authentic man
  • Why our bodies matter
  • The value of tradition
  • The purpose of courtesy
  • What real holiness is and how to achieve it
  • How to deal with failure in the spiritual life
  • And much more…

authentic masculinity—and this is it. I highly recommend it!”

“Guzman provides an amazing collection of those little things essential to becoming both gentle and manly, like Christ. He is re-presenting gentlemanliness to a generation hungry for something more than
sentimentality and cliché.”
