This is a simple and yet, thought provoking book based on the Word of God. Pastor Jerry Ross of Blessed Hope Baptist Church in Jasonville, IN has done a tremendous job of studying the Scriptures and very practically laying out principles that every man who bears the name of Christ should be, not just familiar with, but immersed in as a way of life.
Covering topics such as; developing a strong work ethic, learning biblical leadership, seeking Godly counsel, engaging in excellent speech, defeating the sins of the youth, and many more….Pastor Ross has provided every parent, pastor, teacher, adult a treasure trove from which to draw upon when it comes to raising and mentoring the next generation. There is nothing in this book that is new as every principle is based on sound biblical interpretation and application. However, I fear that for far to long we have ignored these timeless truths given to us by God and we are now reaping the consequences.
Really, I could go on and on about this book, but the truth of the matter is that you need to read it for yourself. I will be reading it again very soon and intend to create my own study guide to use in the future with my own sons and with other young man that I have the opportunity to work with.
