J. Thain Davidson dedicated this book, "To the thousands of young men who within the past quarter of a century have spent a little time under my ministry in Islington, and are now scattered to all parts of the world." It is a collection of sermons published in the hopes that young men could be saved from the "fatal whirlpool" of temptation, with each lecture prefaced by one verse of scripture. In this section of the book, Davidson discusses the importance of strength and resolve, the importance of maintaining English superiority in skilled work, the burdens of having wealth, the hope involved in the young men of the nation, the benefits of following Christ as the unnamed young man in the gospel of Mark did, the importance of being a man of integrity, the benefit of a meditative lifestyle, and he encourages his young readers to be physically strong. Finally, Davidson explains the "perfect man" in Christian manhood.
