Today’s culture doesn’t encourage men to grow up. Everyone from pastors to op-ed columnists have described a crisis of masculinity, fostered by a media culture that uniformly make men the butts of jokes. Men are much more likely to give up on life than women. One indicator of this is the large gender difference in suicide rates—men are four times more likely than women to drop out of life. This points to a profound lack of effective mentoring of men, especially in the church. Dave Bruskas seeks to fill in this gap with this book. Two decades ago, Dave lost his only infant son to a congenital heart defect. That devastating loss fueled his desire to provide effective mentoring to young men. Dear Son contains the guidance and insights Dave would have given his son if he had lived through the milestones of growing up: from first dates to first jobs, from weddings to births, from friendships to funerals. Dear Son contains heartfelt wisdom for life’s journey, especially for guys—and for those who want to strengthen them.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Dear Son by Dave Bruskas 21. April 2014
Von Michael D. Witowich - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Fatherless sons are an at an epidemic high in both the United States and around the world. But, one topic that is not mentioned as frequently is that of sonless fathers. When you combine these two fields of study and address some of the important issues which a father should discuss with his sons, you have the material found in the book 'Dear Son', the first book written by Pastor Dave Bruskas.

Dave Bruskas is an executive elder at Mars Hill Church in Seattle, Washington. He has decades of Pastoral experience and is married with four daughters. Dave also had a son who died in infancy. One of the unique features of 'Dear Son' is found at the beginning of each chapter. It is in that spot where the author inserts a letter of only a few pages that he writes to his son David, the child who died. These letters address the topic in the chapter by relating personal stories about their family. They serve as a brief introduction for each subject.

Some of the subjects covered in this book include Biblical advice on how to be a son, Christian, father, citizen, husband and others. Spread throughout the pages are scriptural gleanings from the New Testament letters of 1 and 2 Timothy, with other passages as well. I liked this book and feel it is very needed as a compass for young men seeking to navigate life. However, Mars Hill Church has a consistent reputation for emphasizing scripture as primary in living, and I did not find that scripture was emphasized enough in relation to each subject. It seemed like it was added to the subjects, rather than being the focus of them.

Again, I did like the book. And I do recommend it, but there is something you'll need to be aware of regarding the intended audience. It is written primarily to young men, in the age bracket of their teems to twenties. While the principles in the pages are true and applicable for any age group, it is the intended age bracket that will obviously benefit the most from it,. I received this book for free from the book review program for bloggers, available at [...]. All young men need help in their journey through life. I hope that this book will fall into the hands of many of them, and that they will apply the Biblical principles in it's pages to be more like Jesus on their journey.

Format:Kindle Edition
I want to publicly endorse this book as one of THE BEST BOOKS I have EVER read, and shed MANY tears while reading. As one who grew up without a father and wrestled with much, I deeply recommend this book. Dave and His book Dear Son have truly been a blessing to me. He is a godly, humble and repentant man of great character. Please purchase it. I pray it will bless you as well.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Young man, could you use sound life advice from one who cares? 15. Mai 2014
Von Nichols Notes - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Dave Bruskas, father of four daughters, writes a book aimed at young men in their teens to twenties. Why should a prospective reader consider this book? Two decades ago, Bruskas lost an infant son. Dear Son, a message written from the heart, is the author’s answer to the question, “What lessons would I teach my son about being the man God wants him to be?” Bruskas desires to be a fatherly help to young men who do not have practicing dads of their own.

The book is written as a conversation between an older man with much life experience and a younger man who needs a clue. As a pastor, Bruskas has fulfilled this role for many, and his real world knowledge is evident in the text. Bruskas states, “But words have enormous power. They may be used to build up or tear down.” With that awareness, he strives to communicate clearly so the reader gets the message.

Chapter 5 (Provider) offers practical career advice on planning and preparing for the future. The upcoming generation may have difficulty adopting a long-range view in the preparative years following high school graduation. Bruskas spells out the issues and raises great questions to help in the planning.

Chapter 10 (Vessel) covers the need for purity and personal holiness. Bruskas explains, “your usefulness to Jesus and your fruitfulness in the church will be determined far more by your character than by your competency.” The reader is reminded that gifts and abilities belong to God and are given as an aid in serving others.

Are you a young man in your late teens or early twenties trying to find your way? Could you use some sound life advice from one who cares? Pick up your copy of Dear Son, grab a pen, and start making notes. You will find a solid return for your time investment.

Note - Tyndale House Publishers provided a complimentary copy of Dear Son to facilitate this review.

5.0 von 5 Sternen a spiritual father's advice to fatherless sons. 25. April 2014
Von Karl Dumas - Veröffentlicht auf
Real men cry. Sometimes there's no way around it. There's no other manly way to respond to loss, grief and pain. But after the tears, life goes on. Pastor Dave Bruskas, experienced a loss that require tears, and has shared his heart with us in Dear Son: A Father's Advice on Being a Man.(Tyndale House, 2104)
Two decades ago Bruskas lost a son, an infant son who had just turned 2 months old. This son is still very much a part of his heart and his life, and the letters he writes to David, show that love. But this is so much more than a quick note on a birthday, they are poignant reminders that this child is still very much a part of the family. The letters are filled with detail about sisters, parents, grandparents, and important life events that David couldn't be there for.
The letters are much more than personal notes to his young son. Bruskas didn't harden his heart because of his loss, and he became a spiritual father to several young men in the churches where he served as Pastor.
This book is a dad teaching his son how to be a man, how to grow into the man that grows in wisdom and stature and favor with God and man (Luke 2:52). Bruskas didn’t have the opportunity to teach these things to his own son, but over the years he became like Paul to young men like Timothy: a spiritual father to a young man who needed someone to be there for him, to set an example and to teach him how to be a godly man.
And in a society which seems to encourage young males to 'strut their stuff' but forgets that they are supposed to grow up and become men rather than just adult males, there is a tremendous need for godly men to step up and 'father' young men.
Bruskas offers advice to his son for each stage of a man's life- how to be a Christian; how to be a son, brother, young man, husband and father; how to be a vessel that pours out God's love; and even how to be a mortal, and die as a godly man.
I liked this book - a lot. The letters to infant David are touching (yes I cried) and the wisdom provided to young males on their way to manhood is stuff that needs to be taught. (and for those who already know it, it's a good reminder.
Men can make an impact in the lives of 'fatherless sons'. Bruskas teaches us how!
I received a copy of the book in exchange for a review. I was not required to write a positive review.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Words on life... 4. Juli 2014
Von TheophilusFarrell4 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
The premise of this book touched my heart, and I knew I needed to read it.
Dave Bruskas is a "sonless father" writing to a world of "fatherless sons."
His one son, David, was born twenty-two years ago, and he went to be with the Lord sixty three days after his birth.
Pastor Bruskas and his family (a beloved wife and four daughters) have had a gaping wound in their hearts ever since.
That wound never stops aching, it never goes away, and until they hold their son in heaven it won't close.
And it motivated him to write this book for young men who are here and have no guidance or encouragement.

Dear Son: A Father's Advice on Being a Man. This book would make a good gift for a boy between 15 and 20.
The best part is the actual letters to his son, in all their tenderness. There is one letter for each section, an it's full of family stories and reflections.
The rest of each section is straight talk, authoritative and applicable. There is advice on man as Christian, Son, Brother, Young Man, Provider, Citizen, Member of Church, Husband, Father, Vessel- of Grace, and Mortal- living in light of eternity.

Obviously, Dear Son is chock full of wisdom for walking like Jesus in our wild world, yet I think the bigger lesson could be learned from what the author says about him and his family in the loss of their son.
That's where the real gold is in this book, in the glimpses he reveals. "We celebrate your birthday each year and dream about who you would be if you were still living. We cry a lot. We recommit to loving each other better in the next year. Losing you has made us all appreciate each other more."

I'm praying that every family who loses someone will find a way to do this, to grieve *and* love all bundled together.

Thank you Tyndale for my review copy.
