Author Osmond A. Lindo Sr. asserts that the majority of men in prison today grew up without father figures in their lives. He says a common claim among these men is that they had no one to teach them how to be real men.

“My book, ‘Real Men Read Jesus’ Parables: A Twenty-First Century Study of Jesus’ Parables for Men’ (published by WestBow Press) provides specific steps to guide young men in becoming the kind of men God created them to be. It highlights the relevance of the parables of Jesus in the New Testament to the lives of men in the 21st century,” Lindo says.

As the child of a widowed mother, Lindo thinks his mother did an exceptional job raising him and his four siblings on her own, and he believes that other people growing up in a similar situation could benefit from the information in his book.

“While my primary aim is to guide men into mature manhood, the book makes available information to help single mothers raising their sons and daughters without the help of a father figure and it also equips women in general with insights into the issues with which the men in their lives are struggling.”
