Book Review: Faith Factor in Fatherhood

Father and Son

 

SUMMARY:

This is a review of the book Faith Factor in Fatherhood edited by Don Eberly and published by Lexington Books (1999).

The book itself is a collection of excellent essays which examine the issue of fatherhood and it spiritual roots from various Christian traditions. It provides a critical analysis of what has happened to fatherhood and why we need to recover an authentic fatherhood in our own time. One essay shows how statistically when a father is not physically present in the home the children suffer enormously, including the facts that such father-less children are 3 times more likely to commit suicide and 40 times more likely to be abused! These essays offer important insights into the need for fathers and helps us to see what authentic fatherhood looks like, especially its spiritual dimension.

This essay helps you see keypoints in the book.
