A spiritual battle rages for the lives of our young men…
Scripture warns that the enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy and that’s exactly what we are seeing with our young men. Yet history is replete with seemingly helpless battles turned by determined and courageous leaders.
Cindy McGarvie's new book Lost Boys uses her military background and extensive research to illuminate the current cultural situation and offer a God-led plan of counterattack, laying out the Sword of truth in response to the rampage of:
- depression and anxiety,
- porn addiction,
- fatherlessness, and
- the feminisation of our young men.
This book is not light reading, by any means, but it brings truth and focus to many of the issues destroying far too many promising young lives today.
It is a robust call to adventurous discipleship, and a rally call to take up our weapons of warfare and fight for our young men. Will you join us?
Cindy identifies, highlights and encourages us to see the problems facing boys and to do something about it. I recommend this book and trust it engenders much conversation and solutions to build a better society by the way we raise our boys.

This book is not so much a call to arms as it is a call for the Western church particularly to wake up and seize the opportunity and responsibility we have to become sharers in the shaping of the spiritual life and character of our young men. I highly recommend this book, particularly to those who are involved in the training, discipleship, and mentoring of our next generation of young men.
