Please try again later. I used this information book as an assigned read for an eleventh grade critical book review and oral report assignment. After reading the book myself, I found it to be scripturally accurate but lacking in godly wisdom in Chapter 8 "Dating" and at the beginning of Chapter 9 "Sex".
The Young Man in the Mirror: A Rite of Passage into Manhood
I actually removed Pgs. I understand the need to teach sexual sin from a Christian perspective; however, the incident that was used was just too raunchy to me as a Christian, a teacher, and as a retired law enforcement officer that dealt with the real life consequences of deviant sexual behaviors on a regular basis. Quite often the same lesson can be taught without putting unedifying ideas into the ear gates and eye gates of young people.
That said, I also thought Chapter 8 "Dating" was contradictory in and of itself. While the author wisely stressed the importance of not giving your heart away until you are prepared for marriage, he goes on to further suggest that dating could begin at fifteen years of age. This teaching is illogical. Certainly a fifteen year old is not ready for marriage, nor is he ready for an intimate relationship that should be reserved for a mature, emotionally healthy adult. This is one part of the book that was discussed extensively with my students.
They were encouraged to think critically, and more importantly biblically, about how the author's suggestion lines up with the Word of God and the obvious temptation to walk directly into sexual sin at such a young age.
The Young Man in the Mirror: A Rite of Passage Into Manhood by Patrick Morley
On a positive note, there were many good things that the author taught and reinforced as he attempted to guide young men into manhood. He stressed the need for young men to learn and believe that they were created by God for a purpose. Purpose gives a young man direction, value, and an understanding as to why he is here on this earth.
Morley addressed the importance of making major life decisions with the help of several important aids: Prayer, Bible, Holy Spirit, good counsel from godly mentors who have lived and continue to live a godly life, present circumstances, conscience, and fasting.

Most importantly, the author taught young men that foundational to everything they do or will ever do in their lives is their relationship with Jesus Christ. You really cannot say it any better than that! Morley, for your care and concern toward the young men of our world.
I so admire your desire to guide them toward Christ and godly living. Truly, if our nation's youth would heed your biblical counsel, our country would soon become a very different place indeed! I bought this for my son to read on his own time. He hasn't picked it up yet, but what I've read so far has been what I would consider great for a teen man-to-be.
I hope he enjoys it, but most of all I hope it brings his heart closer to His father.

Paperback Number of Pages: Thoughts for Young Men: When Young Men Are Tempted: William Perkins , Randy Southern. The Young Man in the Mirror is a great book written for teen guys ages 13 to The book opens with Morley's life story which ropes the reader from the first paragraph.
The author covers morals, dating situations, and other life impacting decisions. As a 14 year guy, this book encouraged me to be a godly man and leader in this world. Morley used illustrations from his own life as examples of what to do or what not to do.
He stated that men want to have a mission in life. If there is no mission, there is no life.
God designed men to be protectors. A man cannot be a protector and a jerk at the same time.
