Practical Insights for Young Men
Bob Schultz' previous book, Boyhood and Beyond, addressed essential issues related to godly character as boys transition into manhood. In "Created for Work" he applies his engaging homespun wisdom, with stories from real life, to teach young men (and boys) what it means to be good workers.
Modern culture seems addicted to ease and entertainment. It has produced a generation of educated yet often dishonest, unproductive, and weak-willed men. God desires higher standards for His people. He is looking for young men who do not shy away from hard work, who are not afraid to get their hands dirty, who can follow directions, think creatively, respect authority, and happily complete their duties in a timely manner. These are the ones He is training up to be future fathers, teachers, and Leaders. "Created for Work" inspires young men and offers the tools and encouragement they need to embrace God's ways and always give an honest day's work.
All young men should be on the road to developing a healthy attitude toward work. Honest productive work is the backbone of strong families and blessed nations.
This book arrived this morning after the daily paper headlined scientists who had defrauded the Canadian government and people of millions of dollars due to dishonest reporting. What a breath of fresh air Bob Schulttz brings to us! First with his book Boyhood and Beyond and now with Created for Work.
Questions at the end of each chapter make Created for Work an excellent read-aloud book for a father and son or for group discussion.
