New book provides fathers with tools to have gospel-centered conversations with their sons about every aspect of life.
This easy-to-use, life-changing book for fathers and sons gives readers the tools to have important conversations with boys about life, faith, and being a man. With a conversational and captivating tone, fathers and other caregivers are guided into having gospel-focused conversations with boys about a wide range of topics from social justice and friendships to money, anger, and more.
Dads are given an incredible opportunity to be one of the primary influences in their children’s lives for the gospel. By inviting conversations in every arena of life, fathers pass down the message of Christ to the next generation. As a youth and family pastor and father to a young boy who’s entered into many of these conversations, Joel Fitzpatrick knows it’s important not to shy away from difficult subjects.
But he also knows dads and other caregivers need help in how to have intentional conversations with boys about God, themselves, and what difference knowing the gospel makes to their everyday life. Fitzpatrick invites fathers to share with their sons how the gospel shapes all aspects of life, including how they treat women, people from other ethnic groups, and much more. Specific, practical help is given to dads through suggested activities, God’s Word, and insightful questions.
In a world where television, the internet, social media, and gaming culture have taken away from quality time spent between fathers and sons, Between Us Guys urges readers to lean in to important conversations with the grace and knowledge of Christ.
My thoughts: I enjoyed the book Between Us Girls for mothers or mentors to read through with their daughters, so I was thrilled when this one came out! It can be hard to have insightful conversations or to know where to begin with talking about important things with the children and teens in our lives, but this book helps to take some of the guess work out of fitting those in. I love how it is set up, with different topics and conversations to have together. I highly recommend picking this book up!
I received this book from New Growth Press. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
