Product Description

The author of Boyhood and Beyond now brings us Created for Work, a collection of tales that give us examples of the work that needs to be done, whether boy or man.

Each chapter has study questions at the end, making it perfect for a father-son or group discussion. 181 pages, softcover.

    I HOMESCHOOL our son who has just finished 6th grade. We read "CREATED FOR WORK" once a week as part of our Personal Growth area. There are 34 chapters in this book. Last year (5th grade) we started with Bob Shultz' 1st book: "BOYHOOD AND BEYOND" (31 chapters). Because my son spends most of his day home with me, I wanted to make sure he was getting plenty of influence from a Godly man. These books hit the target! Each chapter is about 3 or 4 pages, followed by a set of stimulating questions. I read the chapters aloud to my son (and I always get something from each story as well). As I think of things in our life or my son's possible future, I pause and discuss them. Scripture is woven throughout each chapter in the KJV (I keep my bible handy with the NKJV whenever we need an easier translation). These books have been a wonderful part of school for us! For 7th grade we will start "PRACTICAL HAPPINESS" (36 chapters). I would recommend them for ALL parents of boys; from the single mom, to the dad wanting to help mold his child into a young man after God's own heart, to those parents working in partnership and wanting to do a family devotional with their boys, or other homeschool teachers like me! Ps: If you have daughters, it would not hurt for them to listen in and begin to understand what Godly character to look for in their future husbands, plus many of the character ideas apply to all of us, not just boys. I just found out there is a new book published this year (2011) titled "EVERYDAY BATTLES". I will order it very soon to make sure I have it ready for 8th grade. However, in checking the CBD website, I learned of Mr. Shultz passing away in 2008 (thanks to another reviewer kind enough to share it). I am so sad and deeply moved. Mr. Shultz leaves an amazing legacy behind, both in these books and in the many lives he touched personally, (as you will come to understand through the little stories he shared). I pray that his family is continually blessed and comforted.

    Great book! I homeschool and assigned this to each of my boys to read and write a report on. I could tell they "got something" out of it by the change in their work attitudes after reading the book.

    This book is wonderful. We did like another reviewer and read it aloud as a devotion. Our kids are 19, 14, 11; two boys, one girl. I can only hope they got half of what their dad and I got out of it. We have decided to go back and read it aloud again. It's that good.
