4 stars. This book helps teach sons how to develop a heart to provide for their homes.

I really like the Ideas in this book... but, some of the ideas may be considered "extreme".

Like us, the Maxwell's are a homeschool family. And since we have three sons, my interest in this book was from a practical "how-to" standpoint. But Steve Maxwell also answered the "why" question in this book. It was a very helpful book and gave me some things to think about.

I liked this as much for what it taught me as a grown man about a Christian life as for its advice regarding parenting. Even though I suspect I have a lot of theological differences with the author, this was a very profitable book for me.

I found some good nuggets in here but overall it wasn't too earth shattering. Some of their views, as mentioned by other reviewers are perhaps hard to come to grips with but not necessarily wrong.

Very practical. Some ideas seem somewhat radical but thought provoking.
