The Intentional Father

A Practical Guide to Raise Sons of Courage and Character


Jon Tyson

Jon Tyson dives into the critical need of father's in our society to raise boys to be not just "good men", but to "be good at being men". He takes the readers through a biblical and practical path he and his son walked together to help transition him from boy to man. Every father of a son needs to read this book and apply at least some version of it.

From the back cover: Dads today are often overwhelmed with both the responsibility and the complexity of raising sons in this challenging culture. At the same time, self-initiation is killing our young men. Without strong mentors, boys are walking alone into a wilderness of conflicting messages about who they should be as men. It's no wonder that our sons are confused about what the world expects from them and what they should expect of themselves.

The Intentional Father is the antidote. This concise book is filled with practical steps to help men raise sons of consequence--young men who know what they believe, know who they are, and will stand up against the negative cultural trends of our day. Jon Tyson lays out a clear path for fathers and sons that includes specific activities, rites of passage, and significant "marking moments" that can be customized to fit any family.

It's not enough to hope our sons will become good men. We need them to be good at being men. This book shows how fathers, grandfathers, and other male mentors can lead the way.
