Hundreds of thousands of fathers all across America feel keenly their responsibility to bring their sons up in the “nurture and admonition of the Lord.” But they’re not quite sure how to do it.
This book may be what they are looking for. It is a book designed for fathers to read with their 12-year-old sons to introduce them to the rich wisdom about manhood from the book of Proverbs. Through this book, fathers can introduce their sons to the truths about God, about friendship, speech, anger, work, money, pornography, dating, and how to recognize the woman they are to marry.
And each chapter closes with a prayer that each father can pray over his son, so that he can pray the eternal wisdom of Solomon into the very life of his son. This may be just the tool dads need to help their young sons grow from boyhood to manhood.
