When I first saw Flight Plan: Your Mission to Become a Man by Lee Burns and Braxton Brady, I wondered if I should read and review it. Since we don’t technically have a youth group, I thought it might be a helpful resource for our teenage boys. So I requested a copy.
The book was developed as a curriculum at a private boys school to assist them in those difficult years. It covers most of the topics I could think need to be covered to prepare them for manhood. As is the case in all books of this type, the purpose is not to be exhaustive as it covers each topic. There remains plenty to be said, but it is intended to get the conversation and process started. Each chapter has discussion questions to further this process.
There are plenty of pictures of planes, which my friend who is a pilot found fascinating. There are also a number of very interesting stories about pilots and flights used to illustrate the message of the book. I am sure CavSon will also find these stories and pictures very interesting as well (when the time arrives).
