The Guy's Guide to Four Battles Every Young Man Must Face: a manual to overcoming life's common distractions by Jonathan McKee

About the Book

Honestly. . .
   "Why wait for something when I can enjoy it now?"
   "The images don't really affect me. . . do they?"
   "And how could smoking  a little weed really be bad when it's becoming
     legalized everywhere?"
   "I'd like to tell you I don't care what others thing, but honestly, I want to be liked."

Maybe you're thinking, "I've had one. . . maybe even a few of these thoughts, and I don't know how to even begin to deal with them." 
The good news? You're not alone. And there is a way to fight these battles head-on, overcoming the past, pressing forward, and becoming the person God designed you to be.
So what's a guy to do? . . .
Join youth culture expert and author of the popular Guy's Guide to God, Girls, and the Phone in Your Pocket, Jonathan McKee, as he gets real about the four common battles every young man will encounter in his life:

  1. Sexual Temptation
  2. Screens
  3. Controlled Substances
  4. Self-Esteem

With humor and honesty, McKee once again offers up practical, spiritual advice filled with real-world application helping you face today's distractions.

My Review

Our author does it again! He takes totally poignant and relative topics for today's teen and gives Biblical principles and truth in a way that makes sense to teens, and enables parents/guardians, youth pastors, whoever, form some meaningful discussions out of it. He takes humor, truth, and realities of today, and shows how the Bible is not outdated or irrelevant, but how it is the guide for making decisions and living a life that is focused on God. The book is shorter, has discussion questions at the end of each chapter, and has shorter chapters that could easily be used in a discussion way as a group or a family. While some of these truths are just hard to talk about, our author makes them simple to the reader. While I am not a guy, I have worked with teen guys, and my husband is a high school teacher (and obviously was a teen guy), and I have to say this book is a priceless resource for the teen guy in your life even if he isn't typically a reader. Make sure to check out the author's other books for teens! Just to name a few I have had the privilege of reading- The Teen's Guide to Social Media & The Bullying Breakthrough (awesome for teens, teachers, pastors, and parents alike!)

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.
