I have been using this book for almost a year now with my eleven-year-old homeschooled grandson, who loves these lessons and the time we spend together discussing them. He has recently begun covering the chapters on his own, with me close by as a sounding board for scriptural truths he wishes to discuss further.
My grandson was particularly looking forward to the chapter, "Preparing for a Wife," but was a little surprised and disappointed at the author's idea of how to do that. On the first page of that chapter, Schultz says, "God designed perfect classrooms for marriage training. They are called little sisters. Hopefully, you have one or more of these little girls around your home." My grandson has two, but even though I have been telling him essentially the same thing as Schultz, it seemed to sink in better for him, coming from Schultz.
The book is organized in thirty-one chapters, so used as a daily devotional, can be covered in about a month. The author has put forth topics relevant for Christian boys, and I have not detected any denominational bias in his writing, yet it is in no manner without backbone. He simply sticks with the essentials.
Schultz does not equivocate on important matters.Read more ›
Each chapter has exhortation or insight about becoming a man that is applicable, challenging, and memorable. I have even caught myself sharing some of these with my own friends at parties, they are that challenging and meaningful. This author has earned my respect over and over.
Some of the highlights are the chapter on dirty diaper collecting, Mr. Sloth vs. Mr. Industry, Integrity, Justice, being Shy....and wait, we're only about 2/3 done with the book! I HIGHLY recommend this book. I will say it's best to read for age 9 and above...but little ones can read it again some day. The older the reader, the more applicable it will be.
P.S. I'm a mom reading this to her sons...ideally, dad would be doing the reading but I have to say it works with me doing it. I'm the one who is homeschooling during the day and it just fits along with our Bible reading time. Sometimes, my husband will have me read them again at devotionals with all 5 of our sons.
Easy to read for this age. Has very practical and enjoyable stories.
