I read this fantastic book in preparation for some messages I gave at Riverbend Community Church in Ormond Beach, FL a few weeks ago. I think every father of a young son should buy it and read it while his son is still a young boy. It will equip him to do something very challenging and absolutely crucial in our day: Lovingly, biblically and effectively communicating to his son the changes that come with puberty, the dangers associated with the world’s distortions of God’s good gift of sexuality, and how to glorify God as a man. Today only, it’s on sale for $6.98 – 50% off.
Ted Tripp’s blurb says it well:
“According to researchers over 60% of boys from Christian homes never receive “The Talk”. Many dads want to have “The Talk” but feel so ill-equipped that they never get to it. Dads (and Moms) Steve Zollos has come to your rescue. This book is comprehensive, insightful, biblical, gospel centered and above all doable.”

The publisher’s description:
Time for The Talk will help fathers walk their sons through one of the most important conversations of their lives. “The Talk” is much broader than just a talk about sexuality; it’s a conversation about manhood, about right decisions, about Christ. Time for The Talk will assist you in giving your son what he needs to steer through the moral and spiritual confusion of this world and make wise, godly, character-forming decisions. You will be equipping him to enter true manhood—a passage that many young men today never make. This book not only provides a complete framework for discussing the key areas of manhood that every boy should learn from his father; it also guides you into developing a relationship based on truth and love that will endure for life.
