 Not directly, but they were big about a decade ago.  It just seemed like an evangelical fad, which is very typical of the consumerist approach to religion that many Evangelicals have.  Seems like they have faded to irrelevance like Rick Warren and the Purpose Driven Life movement has.  

While I would agree with the fact that much of Christianity has become completely feminized the picture of masculinity envisioned by Promise Keepers seemed to be pretty shallow and highly Americanized.

Thanks Ridge, I'd like to read more of what you think about the feminization of Christianity. Phone Post
