Time for the Talk
Leading Your Son into True Manhood
A book to help fathers walk their sons through one of the most important conversations of their lives. “The Talk” is much broader than just a talk about sexuality; it’s a conversation about manhood, about right decisions, about Christ.
Time for The Talk will assist you in giving your son what he needs through the moral and spiritual confusion of this world and make wise, godly, character-forming decisions. You will be equipping him to enter true manhood — a passage that many young men today never make.
This book not only provides a complete framework for discussing the key areas of manhood that every boy should learn from his father; it also guides you into developing a relationship based on truth and love that will endure for life.
“According to researchers, over 60% of boys from Christian homes never receive ‘the talk’. Many dads want to have ‘the talk”, but feel so ill-equipped that they never get to it. Dads – and Moms! – Steve Zollos has come to your rescue. This book is comprehensive, insightful, biblical, gospel-centered, and above all, doable.”
— Tedd Tripp, pastor and author of Shepherding a Child’s Heart
“This book is about ‘The Talk,’ but it’s about even bigger fish than the ‘sex talk’ …it’s also about how a dad can have personal, intimate conversations with their sons about the rich relationships Christ wants them to have with Him, with women, and with the world at large.”
—Rick Horne, author of Get Outta My Face and Get Offa My Case
“Anticipation of ‘The Talk’ may terrify fathers. Be terrified no more! Time for The Talk is practical, helpful, biblical and real. When it comes to discussing human sexuality, Steve Zollos gets it right, and with his help you and your son will too.
—John Younts, author of Everyday Talk and blogger for Shepherd Press
“A comprehensive guide to a most significant father-son conversation, Time for The Talk offers sound guidance. Zollos provides dads with every detail essential to a biblical conversation with their sons about sex. As a father of two boys and a counselor, I find this book to be a helpful and needed resource!”
—Jeremy Lelek, President, Association of Biblical Counselors
