Publisher's Description

Douglas Bond’s latest book, Hold Fast In a Broken World, is a ramped-up call for young men to prepare for stalwart leadership in the family, church, and culture. Hold Fast is a frank discussion of the cultural topics that a young man must biblically master if he is to be the winsome, servant leader of the rising generation. Covering topics from stem-cell research to abortion, feminism to gay marriage, multiculturalism to death art, Hold Fast will help fathers prepare their sons to live with courage and wisdom in a hostile world, to be strong men who live and die to the glory of God.

Editorial Reviews

What does it mean to be a real man? Douglas Bond answers this question with clarity, humility, and wisdom. He calls sons to grow up and be men, and he calls fathers to grow up and be men. This book is a handbook for fathers who earnestly desire to equip their sons to be men of God, men of integrity, and men of humility—relying on God’s grace and living for God’s glory.
The style is engaging... The pithy sayings, crisp language, cheerfulness without cheekiness or carelessness, wonderful vignettes and anecdotes, all combine to maintain interest, and give clarity and depth. Really, it is a remarkable work. Fathers, get these books, sit down with your son, pray and get started. Your son will understand the engaging language and powerful illustrations; you will thank God for help in talking about topics that benefit your son as he reaches for manhood. Very edifying. Don’t miss out on this!
Douglas Bond doesn't write for the faint-hearted. This is for men who want the next generation—including their very own sons—to be more stalwart than they were themselves. This is no fill-in-the-blanks manual just to make you feel good that you did something with your son. Douglas Bond calls you to set your plow shares deep, do the hard work of parenting while it is yet day, and look to a faithful heavenly father for a rewarding harvest.
In a fresh way, HOLD FAST In a Broken World covers the waterfront of issues that young men must consider as they ponder the challenges of Christian manhood. Christian fathers need to be great leaders and Christian sons need to study leadership and see leadership modeled for them by their fathers. Douglas Bond has given us a book that will help us do that. We desperately need our boys to grow up to be strong men and leaders in our society and in our churches. …will encourage you to focus on practical applications, to reject the pressures to compromise and conform to the culture around us. Douglas Bond’s engaging study will help us as men know how to think about our world and our responsibilities as sons and fathers and leaders.
Already well established in historical fiction for young people, Douglas Bond now offers a more direct and vital message for young men and their fathers. With ample story-telling ability, he warns them of the pitfalls and opportunities of youth in a debased culture. The result is a first-class textbook on modern culture, with much wise and challenging counsel for young men and their fathers.
Douglas Bond has a passion for fathers and sons to connect in significant ways, not only because they are related, not only because fathers should teach their sons about life, but because the truths of Scripture are too important not to pass on. In this second book focused on fathers and sons (the first, Fathers and Sons, Volume 1: Stand Fast in the Way of Truth) Bond clearly and winsomely provides an outline of topics for fathers to share with their sons. Culture bombards all of us with its agenda; it is relentless in desiring to bring us to submission. However, believers armed with biblical truth can confidently order their lives and live with certitude. Fathers, here is a volume that you can use to direct and deepen your sons to face real life issues, and do it with confidence and grace. No magic bullets, no how-to-lists, just real life, face to face, day by day training in the truth (Deut. 6:4-9).
There are literally hundreds of Young Adult books published every year for helping teenage girls navigate the twisty landscape of growing up. The problem is that there are hardly any comparable books out there for boys to read. Why girls read more than guys? To any sane children's book reviewer (or librarian) the answer is obvious — writers aren't writing as much for boys, and so boys aren't reading.
