This delightful book would make a great gift for parents and
grandparents--especially the men of the family--who want to raise their sons
with on mission principles and provide on mission role models.
Fifty stories of godly men in the Bible teach basics of the Christian
faith-including growing up with a solid foundation in evangelism and an
enthusiasm for leading others to Christ. Character traits such as courage,
humility, hope and perseverance are also emphasized throughout the stories. The
writing style, which is lively and captivating, is appropriate for boys ages 6
Each story ends with a strong lesson, including questions for the reader (or
parent doing the reading to his son). The lesson helps the youngster understand
the meaning of the story and its relevance to his life. Each lesson is
easy-to-find under a subhead, "Making a Man of God," and is followed by a
"Coaching Tip" to the father or grandfather who probably will be reading aloud
the story and lesson.
For example, the story of Jesus' birth ends with a lesson teaching that "a
man of God tells the good news about Jesus." It asks the child to think of how
he might tell about Jesus-and to name a person with whom he might share this
Each story is richly illustrated with action-packed artwork that is
especially appealing to boys because of the masculine appearance of the
drawings. They were drawn by the same artist who illustrated Heroes of the
Bible, a comic book style Bible storybook.
The combination of a gifted wordsmith, a boy-oriented artist and 50 chances
to bond during storytelling at bedtime make this a wonderful on mission tool
for discerning dads and granddads.
