Editorial Reviews

Review

"Every son longs for his father’s direction, for Dad to make the son a leader. 'King Me!' the son cries out. . . . God calls upon fathers to mentor their sons.'
—Steve Farrar


"Narrator Chris Fabry has an engaging approach and tone with this lesson--a well-crafted and timely reminder that sons need thoughtful and intentional fathers for them to become effective men. Young boys, in particular, need structure and warmth from their fathers to internalize a good system for living. They need even more care and firm boundaries during their teenage years. With a more historical than biblical tone, Fabry offers examples of ancient kings who failed to provide these things for their sons, who then lost their kingdoms and their way. Overall, this is a broadly useful guide from a tireless author who knows how to deliver an effective lesson."

I rarely read and if I do it is typically fiction (last book I read was 2 years ago). But I might read this book twice! King Me is so full of insightful information from an experienced father that undoubtably each new "pass through" will provide additional guidance for young fathers in raising boys in decadent days.

Rarely have I ever taken time to review a product BUT this book should be in the hands of everyone responsible for the soul of a young boy. The only downside to this book for a "typical non-reader" is feeling drawn to read more of Mr. Farrar's books.

This is the best book I've read on raising boys. It is easy to ready, practical and supported by biblical principles. I highly recommend it to principled men who take their role as fathers very seriously.

I am a female working on a talk to give to men. I saw this book and thought I would see what it has to offer. I now can't believe I've allowed my children to be adults without knowing this information. If you have a son, he deserves the best and this book is the best guideline I've seen to raise boys to men.

King Me: What Every Son Wants and Needs from His Father
From the opening story to the "Parting Shot" Steve Farrar lays out not only a biblical mandate that every father should mentor his son(s) along a Godly path but he gives practical insights into how to get it done. The principles are simple yet profound and bursting with biblical truth. He uses kings David, Solomon, and Rehoboam as his examples of what to do & not to do but he brings their stories into the 21st century to make them more applicable. I STRONGLY recommend that every man who has a son regardless if you're a Christian or not, (no matter your son's age) read this book - you won't regret it. It definitely is a page-turner and Steve is a man's man, no namby-pamby, Joel Osteen type.

Format: Paperback
I gave this book as a Father's Day present to my son and a friend but I did read it first. I was intriqued by the comments on the feminizing of our boys due to the amount of time boys spent with women. I think there is a lot of truth in what the author presented. Fathers are so important in the lifes of children and I hope this book helps to remind them of why they need to be active, not just observers, in their sons lifes.

My husband, who does little to nothing on the computer, only dictated this line to me: "I wish i had this book 10 years ago!" He says it is a must have for every dad and requested i find and buy him everything Steve Farrar has ever wrtiten. I did! Specifically, the author breaks down the various personality types and talks about the necessity for each in life and how a dad can appreciate, mentor, direct and affirm his son(s) for the Glory of God and honorable masculinity in general.King Me: What Every Son Wants and Needs from His FatherKing Me: What Every Son Wants and Needs from His Father

I knew what I was getting into with this book. This is my third Farrar book and probably won't be my last. I really believe that Steve is the best author to speak to men about men's issues today. For me what makes him so good is his frankness. He doesn't pull any punches, he doesn't use dozens of illustrations to get the point across as non-confrontationaly as possible. No, Farrar just tells it like it is, and I find that refreshing in our "religious" world today where tolerance and understanding seem to be 11th commandment.

His discussion of discipline, friendships, and sex I found very helpful and encouraging. While I didn't agree on everything Farrar said about schools I did understand his thought process which made me respect him for his views rather than confining him to some radical hippy.

In short, this is a great read for all men.

Steve Farrar's are the best-written books in the Christian market, and he doesn't disappoint with this guide for fathers of sons. Farrar is plain-spoken, biblical and compelling. If you have boys in the house, read this, OK?
