Stand Fast in the Way of Truth draws fathers and teenage sons into a purposeful study about what it means to be a man.

Doug Bond wants to strengthen and equip young men to take every thought captive as they strive to love and adore Christ in our culture. He encourages them to serve like a man, to lead like a man, and to understand our culture in order to demolish false teachings. Stand Fast is an excellent tool for growing the faith and love of fathers and sons and for promoting Christian leadership and maturity in young men.

Endorsements 

"Full of lively illustrations, wise warnings, and hard-hitting application for everyday life, Bond's latest book addresses all of the strong temptations and difficult trials that young men face today. Ideal for personal study or father-son discussion, Fathers and Sons is an invitation to pursue manly goldiness in the adventure of life." - Philip Graham Ryken, senior minister, Tenth Presbyterian Church

"Douglas Bond has written the book that many dads will wish their father had read with them, and that they will be so thankful to have for prayerful discussion with their own sons now...Fathers, get this book, sit down with your son, pray and get started. Your son will understand the engaging language and powerful illustrations; you will be thanking God for the help in talking about so many topics you know will benefit your son as he reaches for manhood. Very edifying; don't miss out on this!" - Paul Walker, pastor and hospital chaplain (retired), Vancouver, BC
