My Review: 

Raising my son to be a Christ empowered man is my ultimate goal in life and I am always seeking out resources that are biblical and sound to help me do just that and this book did not disappoint me. Teaching your son to chase after Christ and follow by His example is not an easy challenge. It is even more difficult when the school system tells you your boy is disruptive, impulsive, ADHD and too rough simply because they do not understand the unique makeup God gave him. I adored how this book really delved into the differences between boys and girls and how our society is trying to condition our boys to let go of their unique manhood and be more passive, soft and basically more like a girl. This book deals with the differences of how boy's process bullying, technology, and peer pressure different from girls. I enjoyed that this book places an emphasis of the role the father places in raising boys to become men. As hard as I might try to steer my boys to manhood, I simply cannot do it. I need their father to step in, men from church, community to teach them to be men. I loved the hero analogy that the authors give. Inside all boys is the deep desire and need to be a hero. Although I may not be equipped to teach him to be a man I can start by helping him develop his inner hero. 

I can easily and highly recommend this book for anyone raising boys or dealing with boys in their life. It gives you a fresh biblical, scientific look into the lives of boys.
