Growing Up God’s Way for Boys by Dr. Chris Richards and Dr. Liz Jones (Review)

 Growing Up God’s Way for Boys

By Dr. Chris Richards and Dr. Liz Jones

(I received this book for review purposes.)

Number of pages- 80

Age Group- 10-14 year-old boys

Description of Book- paperback, ISBN 978-0852349991, $12.99

Dr. Richards and Dr. Jones have written a fully illustrated book which will help teach young men what puberty and marriage is about from a Biblical point-of-view.  The Bible is a constant reference point and there will be no doubt in the young man’s mind how a Biblical life should be lived.

Some of the topics are:

  • Marriage
  • Puberty and how it starts
  • Physical Intimacy

About the Authors- Dr. Chris Richards is married and has four children.  He is a Consultant Pediatrician and a deacon.

Dr. Liz Jones is married with three married daughters.  She is a retired Community Pediatrician. 

My thoughts- I thought Growing Up God’s Way for Boys, Dr. Chris Richards and Dr. Liz Jones was very interesting. 

I have a son who is almost eleven and I think this book would be good for him to read.  I need to read it again and study it to make sure he would be the best age for it.  I will have him read it and discuss it with his father, because I think that is a good subject to discuss between father and son. 

There are parts of this book that I thought might be important to wait until he is older, like 14, and that would be the changes in girls and physical intimacy.  I personally feel that a lot of innocence will be lost if he knows more about girls at a young age than is pertinent. 

I think this book was well written and illustrated.  I would recommend it to all parents of young men. 

Disclosure of Material Connection- I received Growing Up God’s Way for Boys, by Dr. Chris Richards and Dr. Liz Jones, for free through Cross Focused Reviews.  I was not required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.  All links were current when posted.
