Editorial Reviews


Praise for Raising Men, Not Boys

Christians understand that God created human beings as male and female—for His glory and for our good. The differences between the sexes are not matters of evolutionary accident, but are clear indications of God’s sublime and perfect design for human happiness. Yet in our age, confusing cultural signals have led many boys and young men to be uncertain and unaware of their masculinity and proper role in the home and in society. This brave new book by Mike Fabarez is a faithful guide for parents who want to raise their young boys to become true men. Full of Scripture-informed wisdom, this is a message parents and young boys need to hear. May God make us faithful as we seek to lead our boys to become true Christian men.

R. Albert Mohler, Jr.

President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

Raising Men, Not Boys is an absolutely brilliant look at specifics relevant to boys of all ages and the most complete book about raising boys I’ve read. If your son is an infant, read it now. If he is older, read it now. Read sections out loud to him so he understands himself and why you’re making the decisions you are. Underline sections, fold over page corners, and remember to come back to it again and again as your boys experience more of life. Moms should absolutely read this. Differences between boys and girls are very real! Dads should read it, too, of course. Your sons will become men motivated to live for God and equipped to glorify Him if you read, believe, and put into practice just the truths from chapter 2. Mike Fabarez’s explanation of the elements of the gospel and what’s relevant for spiritual growth and wellness is the best I’ve read. This chapter is worth the entire price of the book. Read it all, though. You’ll be glad you did.

Kathy Koch

Founder/president of Celebrate Kids, Inc.

Author of 8 Great Smarts and Screens and Teens

In this marvelous handbook, veteran pastor and experienced father Mike Fabarez provides a deeply probing discussion of various areas every Christian parent of sons should consider in their raising of those boys to become the men God wants them to be. Pastor Fabarez has thought through this subject carefully and includes so many valuable, crucial, and insightful reflections on areas responsible Christian parents would be wise to implement. Let me put it simply: Raising sons? Get this book! You’ll be so grateful that you did.

Bruce A. Ware

Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

Author of Big Truths for Young Hearts

You can tell a lot about a man by the children he raises. Fabarez’s sons tell a definitive story about an intentional father. Turning boys into men doesn’t happen by accident. This character comes about by the shepherding of a devoted father. Others now have the chance to learn from him in Raising Men, Not Boys. Read this volume and join the ranks of intentional fathers.

Dan Dumas

Overseer of the State of Kentucky’s Adoption and Foster Care System

Coauthor of A Guide to Biblical Manhood

As a father trying to shepherd my son into a man, I am thankful for this helpful resource from Mike Fabarez. He tackles hard issues with balance and precision while continually casting a vision for what godly parenting looks like. Every parent of boys needs to read this book.

Thomas White

President of Cedarville University

We’d never consider building a house without a set of blueprints. Yet every day many of us are building families without a blueprint—a vision of what we’re working towards. This book is your blueprint for raising the next generation of men. Read it, soak in the truth, and lead your son intentionally.

Jill Savage

Author of No More Perfect Kids and No More Perfect Marriages

No doubt you’ve heard the stories of teen boys who skip class to play video games, or live with mom and dad as adults. Why aren’t more boys maturing successfully into men? This book will help you raise your son intentionally and biblically, with hope and a game plan.    

Arlene Pellicane

Speaker and author of Parents Rising and Growing Up Social 

Boys will be boys, but at some point they must be turned into men, godly men. In this book, Mike Fabarez provides a toolbox of biblical principles and patterns that will help today’s parent to shape a generation of young men who embrace their masculinity, God-given calling, and need to follow the man Christ Jesus. Read this book, and I pray that God will use it to help you raise a Peter not a Peter Pan.

Philip De Courcy

Pastor of Kindred Community Church

Teacher on the daily radio program Know the Truth

Raising sons to be strong, godly men is hard work. Mike Fabarez explains why this work is essential and how to do it well to the glory of God. Fathers, read this book!
