"Full of lively illustrations, wise warnings, and hard-hitting application for everyday life, Bond's latest book addresses all of the strong temptations and difficult trials that young men face today. Ideal for personal study or father-son discussion, Fathers and Sons is an invitation to pursue manly godliness in the adventure of life."
"Douglas Bond has written the book that many dads will wish their father had read with them, and that they will be so thankful to have for prayerful discussion with their own sons now. . . . Fathers, get this book, sit down with your son, pray, and get started. Your son will understand the engaging language and powerful illustrations; you will be thanking God for the help in talking about so many topics you know will benefit your son as he reaches for manhood. Very edifying; don't miss out on this!"
"Douglas Bond's engaging study will help us as men know how to think about our world and our responsibilities as sons and fathers and leaders. I would encourage dads and sons to read it together, to discuss it, to pray over what you've learned, and to memorize the key Scripture verses together."
"Douglas Bond doesn't write for the faint-hearted. This is for men who want the next generation—including their very own sons—to be more stalwart than they were themselves. . . . Douglas Bond calls you to set your plow shares deep, do the hard work of parenting while it is yet day, and look to a faithful heavenly Father for a rewarding harvest."
