One Friday night this past June the Indianapolis Hoosier Dome was packed; outside, thousands had been turned away. A rock concert? World Cup soccer? No, a gathering of Christians— all men. Sixty-eight thousand of them, part of a growing movement called Promise Keepers.
The men came with the purpose of committing themselves to the following promises:
• “To honor Jesus Christ through worship, prayer, and obedience to His Word. . . .
• “To practice spiritual, moral, ethical, and sexual purity. . . .
• “To build strong marriages and families through love, protection, and biblical values. All men, whether married or not, can further the work of God by honoring women and supporting families. . . .
