Leading Teenage Boys Into Manhood
In ancient times, boys passed an initiation that changed them into men. Today boys drift along until their 18th birthday and are then suddenly considered an adult. The author has two boys and wanted something to do that would help them become the men he wanted them to be. He wanted his boys to grow up to be God fearing young men with courage, honor, and integrity. This book was created to fill that need. Each chapter (or guidepost) has a key Bible verse, discussion and questions relating to the topic and ends with a movie to watch that will produce more discussion.
I am a mother. But I do have a son and loved the idea of my husband doing this with him when he gets older. My husband was also intrigued. The instructions are straight forward and thought provoking. The topics discussed were definitely things that I want my son to be learning about. As a woman I'm probably not the best judge, but I felt this guide was well written and would be perfect for a father and son to use to initiate the son into manhood.
I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
