Reading Level: Teens, Ages 12-15

Recommended For: Ages 12 and up

Machowski draws on his knowledge of Scripture and experience in the Army to firmly call young men to integrity and excellence. Using anecdotes from boot camp and battlefields, he addresses the spiritual warfare we wrestle with using Scripture as the primary weapon and tool.

After a direct-and-to-the-point admonition (which is what boys respond to best), he offers a prompt to meditate on Scripture and advice to grow in grace by overcoming sin and weakness.

Brave and Bold addresses men. Not men of a certain season of life or Christian maturity, but teens and adults who want to grow in their walk with the Lord. Thirty short chapters make this book convenient even for a busy student or worker to read during breakfast or his lunch break. An excellent gift for graduation, birthdays, or other occasions.
