Publisher's Summary

How to raise a godly man in a godless world

Perhaps there has never been a more challenging time to raise children than in today's culture. Parents are having to address challenges that their parents never had to with them. And while the core elements to raising children are the same, parents need wisdom for applying them to this day and age.

That's what this book is about: navigating the times and raising a generation of men on godly principles - sons who are ready, able, and motivated to represent God during their days of sojourning on this earth. Pastor and author Mike Faberez will help parents pass the faith on to their sons, in prayer that the promises of God extend to the third and fourth generations...and beyond.

Parents will be equipped to:

  • Envision their son's future every day
  • Set his spiritual trajectory
  • Build a home that grows godly men
  • Address the rebellion in their son's heart
  • Prepare him to face the world and contribute to it
  • Help their son toward a right view of play and leisure
  • Navigate the teenage years

There is an epidemic of grown men with the maturity of young boys. Be a parent who saves your child from prolonged adolescence. Scripture says, "The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice; he who fathers a wise son will be glad in him" (Prov. 23:24). Children are a gift from the Lord. Listen to Raising Men, Not Boys to steward the gift of parenting and shepherd your sons to be men of God.

Outstanding Resource

Mike has a good perspective on what is needed to raise Godly young men. He is very down-to-earth, but also very spiritually minded.

I would recommend this to any , parent, prospective parent, or grandparent.

felt more like a lecture on what I should do than

This book felt more like a lecture from on high on what the Bible says to do than a practical how to implement those guidelines. not worth it.

Biblical and Practical

Raising Men Not Boys was full of biblical insights to help raise godly children. While the target audience is parents who want to raise godly sons, there are many principles that can be applied to raising godly daughters too.

A must for every Parent

Lots of practical application backed up with sound biblical principals... I would recommend to everyone and this will be on my list to re-read (or re-listen to) every year to keep some principals fresh as my boys get older.

Avoid!

Thank you for wasting my time. This book is a good example of a dominant Anglo Male Christian extremists. Chapter 4 encourages parents to hit their child while you're changing their diapers? Come on now. Then he tries to justify the hitting by saying the state of California allows it. I was not happy with his book. Every little piece of it got worse and worse. Then he commonly refers to Californians as ultra liberal. Very offensive. I would not encourage people to read this book.

A necessary read for parents of boys!

Will be rereading this over again as my young boys grow up. The biblical perspective on raising men was eye opening in many ways. It includes helpful insight, practical advice, and encouragement for Christian parents navigating their role in pointing their children towards Christ.

Highly Recommend For All Fathers

this was an amazing book with lots of insight and wisdom tied directly to the Bible. I plan on listening to this every few months during my son's teenage years to keep my mind fresh with the content.
