Hold Fast in a Broken World is a ramped-up call for young men to prepare for stalwart leadership in the family, church, and culture.

Doug Bond engages readers in a frank discussion of the cultural topics that a young man must biblically master if he is to be the winsome, servant leader of the rising generation. Covering topics from stem-cell research to abortion, feminism to gay marriage, multiculturalism to death art, Hold Fast will help fathers prepare their sons to live with courage and wisdom in a hostile world, to be strong men who live and die to the glory of God.

Very edifying; don't miss out on this!" - Paul Walker, pastor and hospital chaplain (retired), Vancouver, BC
