How to raise a godly man in a godless world
Perhaps there has never been a more challenging time to raise children than in today’s culture. Parents are having to address challenges that their parents never had to with them. And while the core elements to raising children are the same, parents need wisdom for applying them to this day and age.
That’s what this book is about: navigating the times and raising a generation of men on godly principles—sons who are ready, able, and motivated to represent God during their days of sojourning on this earth. Pastor and author Mike Faberez will help parents pass the faith on to their sons, in prayer that the promises of God extend to the third and fourth generations… and beyond.
Parents will be equipped to:
- Envision their son’s future every day
- Set his spiritual trajectory
- Build a home that grows godly men
- Address the rebellion in their son’s heart
- Prepare him to face the world and contribute to it
- Help their son toward a right view of play and leisure
- Navigate the teenage years
There is an epidemic of grown men with the maturity of young boys. Be a parent who saves your child from prolonged adolescence. Scripture says, “The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice; he who fathers a wise son will be glad in him” (Prov. 23:24). Children are a gift from the Lord. Read Raising Men, Not Boys to steward the gift of parenting and shepherd your sons to be men of God.
- Fantastic book and narrator!
Great book for every parents and youth leaders with lots of advice and instructions to raise a generation of men on godly principles. One of the best book I've found on the subject.
Highly recommended! I've been blessed with this book.
I really liked the narrator, the narrator was outstanding in every way.
- A good & practical book with a enjoyable voice narrating it!
I just finished this book today and I really enjoyed it. I actually have recently been going through some struggles with one of my sons and this really relates to what I am currently dealing with. While I do not always agree with the author on how he thinks or processes some points I do agree about 98% of the time and he backs up his thoughts with biblical structure.
If we had half our parents in this world raising our kids this way, it would be a much better future for us.
The narrator--- The first time I have every had the pleasure of listening to Jim Seybert. He did a very good job and kept me engaged by having a very clear and enjoyable voice to listen to. I felt that he was the writter of the book due to how well he engaged the reading of this book.
Again, I think very well written, well narrated and overall worthwhile book!
- Something to return to over the years
As a father of two boys, currently under three years old, this is a book I can see myself returning to over the years. It covers all ages of childhood, giving recommendations and guidance on how to bring up children.
It's initial premise is based in a "society is trying to destroy gender", which I don't wholly agreed with - at least not to the more extreme version floated in this book. But building from that idea the book presents ways to ensure that boys grow up to be men, not just large man-sized children. How to teach respect, responsibility and to build a love of God.
It is well reasoned and gives good teaching and examples. A solid resource for parents of boys of all ages.
The narration by Jim Seybert is clear and easy to follow. He has a voice that conveys wisdom and insight and thus suits the book very well.

- Full of practical information for raising boys
This is a good guide with lots of practical advice. I appreciate that the author is presenting one possible application of Scripture rather than "the only way." He adheres to complementarian position and explains how gender is part of God's revelation of himself to us. I liked his emphasis on teaching boys how to work and teaching them to view marriage as normal. The author does an excellent job explaining the difference between spanking and abuse. He steps the reader through a correct translation of 2 Samuel 7:14 and uses a funny antidote with a police officer to illustrate the importance of restraining your child. He has good advice for single mothers. He encourages them that they are not alone and God has good things in store for their boys. While I disagree with a few points, this is overall a good and helpful book.
