I'm writing this review from a "third person" standpoint, as I have not actually used this directly myself, although I have looked through the book and read parts. My husband, however, has taken our oldest son through this book and the "Created for Work" book by the same author. What a wonderful resource for father/son time! My husband enjoys the author's warm, conversational tone (not "preachy" at all!) and the applicable questions at the end of each devotional. It has given the two of them a system, so to speak, to study God's Word, specifically how it relates to becoming a true young man of God. Using the book has created a non-confrontational opportunity for the two of them to discuss issues that our son will face and how best to combat the temptations and struggles that will inevitably arise in the life of a godly young man. Yet another plus is that each lesson is a nice, useable length. It is not a short one paragraph reading, nor does it take half an hour to get through! It has a medium length.....concise, yet thorough. Highly recommended!
