“For a book to keep your interest, it’s most important that it captures your heart’s yearning from the beginning. This book is relevant, theological, culturally astute, and challenging for the serious student. It is a resource for pastors and a tool for discipleship for lay leaders. It is a MUST READ.”
—Steve Keels, Student Ministries Pastor for 32 years; Next Generation Pastor, Good Shepherd Community Church, Boring, Oregon; author; Truth Quest books
“This is a really uncomfortable book. I can honestly say that I read something troubling on every page. I am therefore so grateful to God for this great aid to the overriding aim of all of our lives: Christlikeness—read it and repent.”
—Rico Tice, Evangelist; author, Christianity Explored
“In a male culture marked by spiritual apathy and passivity, this book serves as a clarion call to single-minded discipline, radical purity, and kingdom purpose. Weaving together biblical wisdom and memorable illustrations from history and popular culture, Disciplines of a Godly Young Man provides clear and compelling guidance on every page. I can scarcely think of a book more necessary for the emerging men of the next generation.”
—David Setran, Associate Professor of Christian Formation and Ministry, Wheaton College; author, The College “Y”: Student Religion in the Era of Secularization
“Discipline is not a popular word these days. But disciplined Christians are growing Christians. So if you know a young man who wants to grow up in the faith, do him a big favor and buy him this book.”
—Collin Hansen, Editorial Director, The Gospel Coalition; author, Blind Spots
“Be warned. You may struggle with this book at first—not because it is hard to read, but because Kent Hughes and his son Carey Hughes show from the Bible the high benchmark that God demands of your young life. They lay it out on the table, simply and clearly, chapter by chapter, discipline by discipline, and then they invite you to live the life God requires. Of course, young Australian men will need to read their own heroes into the first chapter; but they will recognize the biblical heroes in chapter 11; and hopefully, they will recognize the love and power of the one Hero: Jesus Christ, when they read the final chapter about grace. Make sure you read this book to the end.”
—Justin Moffatt, Senior Minister, St. Philip’s, York Street Anglican, Sydney, Australia
“This book is a serious wake-up call for young men who seek to follow Christ. With its straightforward tone and gospel-grounded challenges, this is a perfect introduction to the spiritual disciplines for young men who love Jesus. I look forward to reading and studying this book with our high school guys.”
—Jon Nielson, High School Pastor, College Church, Wheaton, Illinois

It is easy to read and is very light at only about 180 pages.
I also think that this book is a great tool to include in your homeschool as it will help you train your sons to become what God has in plans for them.
This book will be a great compliment to our men's small group study using Disciplines of a Godly Man.
