Thoughts for Young Men

Thoughts for Young Men now available in New Zealand for NZ$12.00




Author: J.C. Ryle
Format: Paperback (101 pages)
Product Number: 52014

If it was difficult to be a young man in the days of the nineteenth century when Ryle penned Thoughts for Young Men, it is all the more difficult to be a young man in the twenty-first century world of image overload, radical individualism, and rampant sensuality. Thanks be to God, the answers available for the boys of Ryle’s day remain every bit as potent for boys today. The reason, of course, is that these truths spring from an eternal font of life — the Word of God — which knows no historical boundaries.

Thoughts for Young Men addresses the four great temptations that plague most young men: sloth, lust, love of pleasure, and peer pressure. J.C. Ryle, the last of the great Puritans, tackles each of these subjects with a tenderness and tact that is unsurpassed. First written toward the end of the nineteenth century, it remains to this day the most relevant and helpful book on the subject in print.

There is more good news: it is wonderful to be a young man. Notwithstanding the many temptations and challenges that all young men face, there is a world of tremendous possibility in Jesus Christ. Young men are brimming with potential, in part because they have yet to be jaded by the cynicism and compromise that often cloud the thinking of adults. For this reason, we must never brush aside young men. We must invest in their lives, listen to their dreams, and encourage them to have a big vision for Jesus Christ.

There is great urgency for us to raise strong, courageous men of faith. The twenty-first century, with its terrorism, its changing cultural and social climate, and its technological and ethical challenges, demands a new type of Christian boy — a hearty, ferociously principled, chivalrous, Christ-loving boy who is willing to stand alone. Without such boys, our culture is doomed. It is these boys who will be the fathers of the next generation.

Customer Comments

Thank you so much for … J.C. Ryle’s book Thoughts for Young Men. This book has been such a blessing to me, and I look forward to sharing it with family and friends. I have just ordered a copy for each of my sons and nephews. May God continue to bless the mighty work you do.

Thank you, thank you. The first brochure you sent out with Thoughts for Young Men caught my attention. When I read the description of the book, I ordered seven copies. My husband and I have read it cover to cover and are sharing it with our sons (age 12 and 15). We are constantly on the lookout for quality reading that will encourage our sons to look to God in EVERY situation. Thank you again for your vision!!!

National Library-5 year olds

As of the beginning of Term 3, 5 year olds can borrow books from the National Library. You will need to show a copy of their birth certificates. I was told that no-one would be turned away if they happened to turn up this week.

Services for Home Educators

 

 

 

 

The Curriculum Information Service offers a wide range of curriculum related resources to support your home teaching programme. The following information outlines how to best use the CIS to ensure your needs are met.

 

Eligibility

The minimum age for home educator services is 5 years. For each child being home-educated, who is over 6 years of age, a copy of the current exemption certificate from the Ministry of Education must be presented. For children who are 5 years of age, a birth certificate must be presented. Membership ceases when a child stops being home-schooled or is over 18 years of age.

What can I get from the Curriculum Information Service?

We will provide you with children’s curriculum related resources (books, audio/visual and digital materials) but not textbooks or recreational reading. The latter material is available from your nearest public library. We do not supply material to support the New Zealand Correspondence School courses. This is the responsibility of the Correspondence School.

How do I get resources?

Visit your local National Library Centre to choose resources. Reference Librarians are available to assist. Caregivers are responsible for the care and return of resources borrowed. Please return them to the Library by the due date.

 

A postal service is available if you are unable to visit the centre. We pay for posting the material to you.  You are responsible for any return freight costs.

 

An online request form is available at:

http://www.natlib.govt.nz/cis-online-request

What can I borrow?

You may borrow up to four items per child, and include one video or DVD per family at any one time. For larger groups there is a maximum of 10 resources per group, or one per child, whichever is the higher.

If a request is made for a collaborative class of home-schooling families a maximum of 30 items may be borrowed.

For how long?

All resources are issued for five weeks but may be renewed for two more weeks if required. Renewals are available subject to demand. Renewals can be made in person, by post, phone or e-mail.

Overdue notices

Please let us know if you have an e-mail address as overdue notices are sent via e-mail. This is quick, economical and environmentally friendly.  If you don’t have an e-mail address, overdue notices are printed and posted to you.
