Gaining Favor with God and Man, written in 1893, is a book that every father should have to sit his sons and daughters down to read with. If you’ve ever heard the term “man of principle” or “woman of virtue” this is where it comes from.
Character, a word not commonly heard these days, is what this book is all about. Great men are an inspiration to the young and that’s what makes this book worth it’s weight in gold—there are so many of them. Sadly they are forgotten men in today’s entertainment culture. It is one of my favorite books and I heartily recommend it.
