What is wrong with our boys? Why arent they doing as well in their studies as girls are? Why are so many caught up in drink, drugs and crime? Why do so many find negotiating the journey to adulthood such a difficult task? Why do so many seem to reach physical maturity but not emotional maturity as well? Lowell Sheppard, former National Director of BYFC and the father of two sons, looks at the whole issue of bringing up boys and suggests we have abandoned one of the most vital tools - the use of puberty rites of passage (PROPs). Boys, he argues, need the combination of adventure, belief and ceremony that PROPs provide to help them understand and accept their arrival into adulthood - and for the rest of the community to recognise their arrival as well. Pinpointing the crucial times in adolescence when PROPs should be used and drawing on the ideas of other cultures, he suggests how to plan a PROP, who to involve and how to adapt it to suit a boys individual personality and talents.

This book is all about Jesus.nbsp;The words recorded in it were written about Jesus over 2000 years ago.

But almost everyone finds him intriguing. nbsp;The story of Jesus comes to us from four different authors Matthew Mark Luke and John written over a period of nearly seventy years.
