“If you weave all I have shared with you here deep into who you are and who you become, you will have become a man of whom the world is not worthy. You will have Become a Man of Integrity and Godly Character—a Shepherd.”
Have you ever wished for a book that teaches the basic behaviors of being a good man, even a Man of Integrity and Godly Character? I humbly offer this book to be that book. I offer it primarily to dads or single moms to read with their sons. You must read it with them! It’ll be useful for Mentors of young men in their teens or twenties, for Youth Counselors, for Men’s and Youth Ministries, etc. It has a study guide. We discuss twelve Behaviors any young man should endeavor to make his own. Among them are becoming disciplined, respectful, responsible, honorable, tough-minded adults who are motivated to become mature, solid leaders. In short, this book will challenge a young man to come up higher as a man and to become a leader, a Shepherd. The last chapter, “Looking Ahead,” provides insightful advice for all age groups on Work, Higher Education, Marriage, Fatherhood, and Operating in the World. We close with an epilogue, a suggested reading list, and the complete study guide.
