I wrote a similar post for teen girls last week and decided I could continue with a parallel post for teen guys, like I did with the posts A List of Books Every Christian Teen Guy Should Read & A List of Books Every Christian Teen Girls Should Read that seemed like a huge hit and something people were obviously looking for.
Being a Christian, many of my recommendations tend to go there, but not every book I recommend it “Christian”, but it is more than likely clean. Here are some of my recommendations…
A summer reading list for teen guys
- The Boy Colonel: A Soldier Without A Name
The year is 1836. A mysterious young English soldier known as the ”Boy Colonel” commands a crack regiment in the snowy wastelands of Siberia. No one knows his history. No one knows his name. The Cossacks want him dead — but are they the only ones? It seems his worst enemy may wear an English uniform.
- Brothers at Arms: Treasure & Treachery in the Amazon
Lawrence and Chester Stoning are twins, but like Jacob and Esau of old they have little else in common. Lawrence is a realist, fascinated by the study of science, mathematics, and history, while Chester longs for the knightly adventures of chivalrous times past — hard-fought battles, gold-filled caves, damsels in distress.
- Secret of the Lost Settlement: The Duty of Warriors
When twins Lawrence and Chester Stoning arrive with news of Queen Victoria’s ultimatum, Colonel Nobody must decide whether to stay and protect the colony’s persecuted Christians or venture to escape with the proof needed to save his best friend from hanging. Or will he survive the settlement’s horrors long enough to do either?
- The Kingdom Series
This series is set in a Medieval time period, where knights, sword fights, and enemies are always at the center of this book series plot. Your boys will love the action, but you’ll love that it is an allegory of the Bible!
- The Knights of Arrethrae
This series has it all. Suspense. Adventure. Fighting. But what’s different with these series is that it focus’ on character traits and defended evil by fighting for the good. My brother didn’t care for reading, but loved this series and the one above.
- Do Hard Things
In today’s society teens are falling further behind in everything. They are becoming lazy, disrespectful, and attached to their phones. In this book your child will be challenged to stand up and stand out to be an example for Christ, by doing the “hard stuff”.
Does your teen boy love sci-fi? Well then you should definitely check this book out. Great story line and keeps you on your toes.
- Danger Calling
What guy doesn’t like something with adventure and adrenaline? Well, this book definitely has it. Throughout the book your young man will be taken through 16 stories of adventures from the bottom of the sea to the top of Mount Everest and poses provocative questions for young men to grow them in their lives and faith.
- Man Up!
The blessing of this book, “Man Up No Excuses – Do the Work ” is how it provides a means to empower and equip young boys into the responsibility of young manhood. Uniquely written by a father, mentor, football coach and a police officer, one who has labored over 20 years shaping and molding young men’s lives, making this book an extraordinary practical guide for self development.
