This game plan for black males ages 11-15 supplies twelve essential lessons to sustain them in their growth from young boys to men of integrity and godly character.
In this compelling resource, Dr. Perkins offers an outline of key “plays” including identity, purpose, and spirituality. He also provides practical approaches to financial responsibility, relationships, sexuality, leadership, and more.
"Dr. Perkins has brilliantly woven real-life practical advice with proven research to present a roadmap for young African American males that should increase their likelihood of success...Dr Perkins has scored a touchdown with this book!" —Rev. Dr. W. Wilson Goode Sr., Director of Amachi
"As a 25-year, urban youth ministry veteran wrestling continuously with questions surrounding identity and character formation in adolescent males, I cannot imagine a better and more urgently needed book for practitioners committed to developing a new generation of visionary leaders. Perkins' book responds to one of the critical issues of our time." —Dr. Bruce Main, President, Urban Promise Ministries
"Playbook for Christian Manhood is an essential resource for those who parent, lead, and fight for African American youth and children. Dr. Perkins' voice is that of a community elder, a voice that carries wisdom and authority that is much needed in our nation!" —
Christopher B. Brooks, National Coordinator, URBNET
"This book is a must-have for every young man that is serious about being their best and achieving all that God has to offer." —Image magazine, Spring 2008
"This book is long overdue!...While written particularly for African American boys, the text contains universal truths and challenges that can be adapted for different cultures and ethnicities. This is a great gift for boys and is a must-have tool for youth pastors, teachers, parents and mentors." —YouthWorker Journal, July/August 2008
"PLAYBOOK FOR CHRISTIAN MANHOOD provides a unique perspective and approach to achieving manhood for young Black boys using sound guidance. Dr. Perkins' advice is practical, easy to follow and provides room for note taking and observations. The writing is clear and concise, there is no room for misunderstanding and implementation can begin almost immediately in some cases. Although this book is recommended for use in youth organizations and churches, I can see where it can be used as a tool to help strengthen the father-son relationship or provide guidance for single mothers raising male children."—Brenda Lisbon, RAWSISTAZ Reviewers
