Disciplines of a Godly Young Man
Point blank, this is a punchy, no-holds-barred book for young men that lays out the call and command to be disciplined, godly, and sold-out for Jesus. Addressing topics such as purity in one's thought-life, peer pressure, and perseverance as a Christian, this specially adapted work stands to influence a struggling generation.
Using the same no-nonsense approach that made R. Kent Hughes' Disciplines of a Godly Man a positive influence on thousands of adults, this adaptation by Kent, his son Carey, and veteran youth leader Jonathan Carswell outlines the disciplines necessary to help a young man align every facet of his life with the fundamental truths of the Bible. It not only teaches how to live a life of Christian discipline, but also instills the desire to do so into a young heart longing to live a life of integrity, meaning, and fulfillment. This book brings the authority of a trusted name with a new flavor that will engage a younger audience.

Great for Father/Son or small groupユーザー レビュー - Christianbook.com
About this Book: Point blank, this is a punchy, no-holds-barred book for young men. Laying out the challenges to be disciplined, godly and sold-out for Jesus, the authors talk about purity in your thought-life, cultural pressure, and perserverance as a Christian. Let father and son Ken and Carey Hughes help you live a life of integrity and become the man God is calling you to be. Our Thoughts: I have to be honest and tell you that when Disciplines of a Godly Young Man arrived in the mail, I handed it to my husband and asked him to read it for review so this review is all his thoughts on the book. As parents to a son, we would love nothing less to see him grow up in the Lord, get saved and live sold-out for Jesus in everything he does. This book covers 14 disciplines such as friendship, prayer, work, our speech, witnessing, tithing and more that all Christian men (regardless of age) need to have in their lives. Each chapter contains not only their thoughts/writings but also includes "Food for Thought", a life application that summarizes what you've read in that particular chapter and even a list of additional resources for the discipline you've just learned about. My husband said this book was filled with lots of "sports stories" and since it is written to be geared toward young men and their fathers I guess that is why they chose sports stories. However, if you are not a big sports fan (like my husband who prefers the outdoors to a sports event) you quickly get tired of the sports illustrations. Thankfully he said there were a few non-sports related illustrations but sports seemed to be the theme of illustrations and stories in this book. At 180 pages, this book is very easy to read and written in a manner that young men could easily understand as well. Disciplines of a Godly Young Man is available through Crossway and not only makes a great father/son study but would make a great small group Bible study as well. It would also be a wonderful homeschool Bible study ...
