I'd like to hear your thoughts on "mid-life crisis," including any resources you've found helpful. I have had a lot of hits on my blog resulting from a small posting I made regarding the wife's role in encouraging her husband in the face of this. Do you think "mid-life crisis" a bogus claim? Is it just a name given to the normal struggle we sinners have with obedience, contentment, and allowing the love of Christ to rule in our hearts and affect our choices and desires? Is this simply the same "crisis" we all face every day in denying self and giving Christ preeminence in all things? What do you think seems to amplify this for 40- or 50-something men?
