Once upon a time, when adventure-loving boys throughout the civilized world read good books, G.A. Henty’s historical novels could be found on the shelves of many great leaders, including Nobel Prize winners, historians, prime ministers, generals, and preachers. The inimitable Winston Churchill himself was a G.A. Henty fan. But far too many of today’s boys have forgotten the thrill of a good book, preferring instead the easy entertainment of video and computer games, or the time-wasting distraction that the Web can so quickly become.
Now even mainstream publications like The Wall Street Journal are giving voice to the reality of today’s boyhood reading crisis. Either boys are not reading at all, or they are reading cheap drivel that numbs the creative mind and fosters very little, if any, aspiration to manhood and noble chivalry. And although homeschooled boys are often far ahead of their public school counterparts when it comes to literacy rates, their need for manly, God-honoring literature is no less urgent. Simply reading is not enough. Content, as the saying goes, is king.
If you want to raise boys who read good books, books that are fun, fact-filled, thought-provoking, and downright manly, then we strongly encourage you to place G.A. Henty’s historical novels in your sons’ hands. Let them discover men of noble courage and fierce perseverance - from ancient Carthage and the days of Wallace and Bruce in Scotland to England’s Storied past and the old America West. As they read these exciting tales, they will rejoice with an ancient barbarian who receives Christ, travel with Conquistadors to distant lands, and watch the fall of the Temple of Jerusalem. Most importantly, they will see the world through the lens of biblical Christianity. In this world, your sons will learn that men are to live a life of duty and sacrifice, and that God requires even little boys to act with nobility.
