Dads today are often overwhelmed with both the responsibility and the complexity of raising sons in this challenging culture. At the same time self-initiation is killing our young men. Without strong mentors, boys are walking alone into a wilderness of conflicting messages about who they should be as men. It’s no wonder that our sons are confused about what the world expects from them and what they should expect of themselves.

The Intentional Father is a helpful antidote. This concise book is filled with practical steps to help men raise sons of consequence–young men who know what they believe, know who they are, and will stand up against the negative cultural trends of our day. Jon Tyson lays out a clear path for fathers and sons that includes specific activities, rites of passage, and significant “marking moments” that can be customized to fit any family.

It’s not enough to hope our sons will become good men. We need them to be good at being men. This book shows fathers, grandfathers, and other male mentors how to lead the way. Endorsements

What Jon Tyson has done with The Intentional Father is just stunning. In a culture-wide identity crisis for men, my teenage son and I have walked the ancient path together, with Jon’s work as our map to uncharted terrain. This is simply the best stuff on fathering sons I’ve ever read.”

John Mark Comer, dad, pastor, and author

The Intentional Father has deeply impacted my vision of being a dad and has had a massive impact on my relationship with my teenage son. I am so grateful for this course and highly recommend it to you.”

Gabe Lyons, dad, founder of QIdeas, and author
