Bezalel Books' newly released All Things Guy: A Guide to Becoming a Man that Matters presents a case to the young reader that he is more than the summation of his appearance, accomplishments and social skills. The book's Catholic authors address such all-engrossing teen topics as girls, acne and shaving but place emphasis on the formative subjects of dignity and virtue.
The teachings of the Catholic Church and the life of Christ give the book a foundation on which co-authors Teresa Tomeo and Cheryl Dickow flesh out how spiritual and physical decisions can shape their young readers into men of character. Integrity, personal discipline, vocation and family are given a place in the life of a boy maturing into a man.
Quizzes, games, tips and stories make the book approachable and entertaining for the book's target audience, boys aged 9 to 14. Examples of strong Catholic men in history and modern day give the book both depth and classic appeal.
Men of the Catholic media scene have embraced the book.
Al Kresta, President and CEO of Ave Maria Radio says it "speeds through the basics of the Faith always aware that boys learn to know, love and serve God in their own generation -- not their grandparents'. There are precious few resources out there for young men. All Things Guy is among the best."
Catholic author and clinical psychologist Dr. Ray Guarendi points out that the book "speaks to [kids] where they live too much of the time -- in the pop culture and media world. It says what good, faithful parents want to say, but may not always be able to find the words."
