    Do you ever worry about instilling character and values into your sons? Do your even feel awkward about it in light of our culture's rewrite of what it even means to be a man? What values most need reinforcing? This volume by Rick Johnson and published by Revell can be a help to you.

    Johnson takes from the lives of twelve great men from history to illustrate great character traits that we so need to see in the next generation of men. Personally, I find some of the men more worthy of emulation than others in his list, but he does a fine job drawing these traits out of the men he looked at. His rationale is that boys need role models. It is the absolute best way to see these traits in our boys. What is modeled will be followed!

    It is not just biography we find here, however, as he gives practical advice of how to help boys take these traits into the fabric of their being.

    He is not afraid to be politically incorrect and that certainly makes the volume refreshing. I agree that it is time we quit going with the current of cultural downgrades and turn and swim toward what previous generations almost intuitively knew. Our boys are too important to play the games played today!

    There is little Gospel here. He is not writing about what God can do, but what we should do. For what it is, it is good and I recommend it.

    Rick Johnson in his new book, "A Man In The Making" published by Revell gives us Strategies to Help Your Son Succeed in Life.

    From the back cover: How does a boy become a man of character?

    As your son grows toward manhood, you can instill in him the values and character traits he will need to succeed. Highlighting famous Christian men throughout history and the character trait that made each an outstanding model of manhood, parenting expert Rick Johnson gives you strategies to help mold your sons into honorable men. Johnson describes men such as:

    Martin Luther King Jr.

    George Washington

    John Wooden

    Abraham Lincoln

    Jedediah Smith

    Benjamin Franklin

    Leonardo da Vinci

    and more

    With the understanding gleaned from this insightful book, you can positively influence your son's life-in a way that will last him a lifetime.

    Our fathers did a great job with us and we are both proud of them and thankful to them for what they have accomplished. If they had the strategies outlined in this book perhaps they could have done an even better job with us? When we don't have a plan-a recipe-then the boy we are raising may turn out well, as planned, or he may fall a little short of the mark. Mr. Johnson believes in a plan for success in raising our boys. He clearly outlines this plan by looking at the lives of twelve me from politics, religious leaders, artists and The Bible. It is time fathers had a user guide to help them raise their sons. Mr. Johnson has given us a book that can be referred to over and over again. "A Man In The Making" is a book for all men to help raise their boys to manhood. This is a book to give to any man who has a son or potentially will have a son. Everyone will benefit from the results.
