    I have to admit I didn't expect this book to start in the kitchen. It "goes" all the places you might expect handyman repairs, fishing, hunting, even building a log cabin. But it does start in the kitchen. Still, it's definitely a boy's perspective on that room. Written by two homeschool moms, inspired by their active boys and handyman fathers, this is a great "how-to" for teaching all the practical aspects of a young man's education. Geared toward boys ages 9-15, I can also imagine girls enjoying both the practical kitchen basics with mom and time with dad learning some things from "his world." Regardless of how and with whom you choose to use it, you'll find this manual a handy reference. Instruction is straight-forward with just a hint of humor (you like to eat learn to cook) and peppered with helpful black & white illustrations. In the kitchen, there are practical rules like "don't put an empty pot on a hot burner it will ruin the pot!" as well as simple how-tos like washing the dishes and reading a recipe, with a nice selection of simple, healthy recipes. Other sections are more of what the title suggests manners, first aid and safety, around-the-house handyman, working with wood, gardening, outdoor adventures, and learning to manage money. There are lots of projects building a birdhouse, toolbox, log cabin, split-rail fence as well as skill-building gun safety, preparing a budget/bookkeeping, and knot-tying. We want our sons to learn these basic life skills, and it helps tremendously to have a "road map" like this one to lead us. 181 pgs, spiral-binding. ~ Janice

Additional Bible study tools are discussed in a bonus appendix.

       Author Albert Marrin introduces modern readers to the life and legacy of the influential eighteenth- century writer and political theorist Thomas Paine. Clearly written as a defense of Paine’s humanistic political and religious values, the author seeks to portray him as a man that was endowed with a rare sense of insight and reason pertaining to civil and religious liberty. While the author aptly documents the powerful influence of Paine upon the emerging political and social conscience of Americans who were caught up in the struggle for independence, he is less successful in his efforts to portray him as a crusader for true liberty. This book will, however, help remind readers of the specific ways in which the American experiment in liberty has consistently been informed and driven by a multitude of philosophies and competing worldviews. Large print and attractive black & white photos make this volume visually appealing. 145 pgs, pb. ~ Mike

    I don't think I've ever heard men referred to as an endangered species. Not the half of the world's population that is expected to be able to grow a beard – but the miniscule fraction of that larger group who are actually willing to step up and assume the responsibilities of a man. This book is talking about manhood as understood from the manual for life – the Bible. Author Dennis Rainey explores five stages of a man's life – boyhood, adolescence, manhood, mentor, and patriarch – in a sincere exhortation "to action, to duty, to courage." Mr. Rainey writes with a passion and conviction that openly illustrates his desire to see boys grow into men of faith, substance, honor, gentleness, strength, and wisdom. Full of personal stories and practical examples, this book challenges boys to become men, and men to abandon mediocrity! 214 pgs, hc. – Zach

    The knight in shining armor! It's hard to imagine a more masculine image. The knight embodied loyalty, courage, leadership, honesty, self-discipline, integrity, and perseverance. Author Robert Lewis wants to renew the vision that medieval fathers had for their sons. His desire stems from disappointment in his own upbringing from an "absentee" father, and he hopes that fathers today will not make the same mistake. Lewis outlines steps to bring our sons along the path to manhood just as the knights had a prescribed course of training. And just as ceremony marked the graduation of a young man from squire to knight, Lewis offers ideas for ceremonies to celebrate the passing of our sons into manhood. Consider these ideas as we prepare our sons to serve the King. 194 pgs, pb.
