Description of Bible Lessons For Manhood from the Battlefield of my Father's Youth by Vision Forum
The apostle Paul exhorted Timothy to set an example for all young men to follow: ”therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ”(II Tim. 2:3). Bible Lessons from the Battlefield of My Father’s Youth is a discipleship tool for dads and their sons. Filled with biblical lessons of real-life manhood that arise from the World War II battle for Iwo Jima, these messages tell the story of fighter planes, amphibious assaults, foxholes, cave warfare, and flamethrowers—elements that helped forge one man’s mission of father-to-son discipleship.
Taking real battlefield scenarios, these talks show fathers specific areas that need to be covered during a son’s discipleship journey as ”soldiers of the cross,” and provide practical advice for dads on how they can wisely encourage their sons to lead courageously, understand and embrace the gospel, handle friendships, devote oneself to the church, flee immorality, take on mighty challenges, trust in the sovereign hand of God, handle trials, and not waste their youth. It’s about discipling sons to be truly great boys, and someday men, by using real-life, action-packed examples to explain what God has said in Scripture. Best to use as a joint father and son devotional.
