SHORT BOOK DESCRIPTION:
A powerful and compelling new voice in Christian publishing, with a message urgently needed by today’s Christian men.
Every man encounters significant struggles in life—struggles that result in poor choices and decisions. Frequently these mistakes can be traced back to a common problem—a father who (even unintentionally) failed to provide counsel or a positive role model.
In What Every Man Wishes His Father Had Told Him, author Byron Yawn offers vital input many men wished they had received during their growing-up years. This collection of 30 simple principles will help men to...
Identify and fill the gaps that occurred in their upbringing
Benefit from the hard-earned wisdom of others so they don’t make mistakes
Prepare their own sons for the difficult challenges of life
The 30 principles in this book are based in Scripture and relevant to every man. They include affection, courage, balance, consistency, and more. A true must-read!

MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW:
Fathers have very strong influences in their children's lives, whether they realize or not...whether they want to admit or not. Men are affected either positively or negatively by their relationship with their Dads. The author presents important lessons that every dad should tell his son(s). He also points the readers to the portrayal of real manhood: Jesus Christ. I love Mr. Yawn's no-nonsense approach. He does not sugar-coat anything. Sometimes, it may even seem harsh but the message needs to be heard. It's never too late for men to learn these Biblically sound principles. Some of the topics covered in this book include grace, accountability, marriage, ambition, work, and integrity. Excellent read!
