Jeff Purkiss, author of Squires to Knights: Mentoring Our Teenage Boys (paperback, 978-1-60477-436-8), believes "the best hope for altering the current path of family breakdown, community disconnectedness, national crisis and faith erosion lies in the mentorship of our teenage boys and imparting a vision of authentic manhood for the next generation."
According to the author, readers will find "convincing portrayals of the current state of our men and boys." They will read inspiring arguments for why our sons need "mentorship and training in authentic manhood" as well as "an effective plan for mentoring our teen boys." Finally, readers will discover "a clear illustration of the hope realized when touching the lives of our future men."
Squires to Knights, the author notes, offers a unique strategy for mentoring our teenage boys with a hope that it will benefit our culture. In the book he informs, inspires and educates men who want to "make a difference for their sons and any young men under their influence."
The author has founded Squires2Knights Ministries with resources for Christ-centered mentorship by fathers, coaches, Scoutmasters and mentors of all kinds. Purkiss himself has served as a coach, a Scoutmaster, a teacher, a counselor and a mentor to numerous teenage boys. The author has also taught various classes for parents of boys, sharing a vision of Christ-centered manhood for the next generation of men.
Jeff Purkiss and his wife, Lynn, have two children.
