When Dean Andreola gave us a copy of this new book for boys at a homeschool conference, he truly introduced us to a treasure! Wisdom and common sense are gleaned from short chapters covering topics such as authority, inventiveness, and honesty as well as learning to overcome things like fear, laziness, and temptation. There are also discussion questions at the end of each chapter, allowing the book to be read alone, used with a journal, or read aloud in a group. Boyhood and Beyond motivates boys to build their lives on a foundation of strong moral principles. Most importantly, these chapters will encourage boys to become the men God wants them to be as they develop a relationship with Him. This is a “life” book designed to be read and lived out in a boy’s life, thus becoming one of his building blocks to godly character and, ultimately, manhood. Recommended. Paperback, 217 pages.
