Boyhood and Beyond: Practical Wisdom for Becoming a Man Review by Christine Field

By Bob Schultz
Great Expectations Book Co.
PO Box 2067
Eugene, OR 97402

From the publishers who brought us Karen Andreola’s revision of Beautiful Girlhood comes a resource just for boys – ages 10 and up. The volume can be used in a variety of ways: read alone by your son, used in a group setting with discussion, used with a journal to record your son’s responses to the readings, or read allowed and discussed.

There is great power in stories. Christ taught some of His most important lessons through stories. Mr. Schultz uses stories to tell our boys about strong character and moral virtue. Each chapter ends with some thought provoking discussion questions. Peppered with relevant quotations and Scripture passages, this book is an invaluable resource for parents seeking to raise godly young men.

What topics are covered? Temptation, authority, pain, forgiveness, overcoming fear, respect of elders, honest, cheerfulness and more. Written by a homeschooling dad and carpenter by trade, you will want your son exposed to this book.
