A book written over a hundred years ago by an Anglican bishop, relevant for today's teens? Yes, it is. Thoughts for Young Men is short, blunt, Biblical truth directed specifically to young men. He outlines pride, love of pleasure, thoughtlessness, contempt, and fear of men as specific dangers that young men must watch out for, and gives specific advice on how to deal with them. He has sections on rooting out sin, the importance of the Bible, and prayer. It is a great starting point for talking with a teen or group of teens seriously about walking with Christ. ( )
