Overview

Fathering comes naturally to God. The rest of us can use some pointers. Who better to provide them than the Father who truly knows best?

Following that reasoning, father-and-son authors Kenn and Jeff Gangel explore God's ways of forgiving, communicating with, disciplining, and loving his children. Each chapter is packed with amusing anecdotes and personal vignettes that illustrate how fathers can model godly character for their children. Fathering Like the Father will inspire any dad or men's group with a heavenly perspective on fatherhood.

"The Gangel team will help you wrestle with the critical issues surrounding your fathering role and remind you of God's hope for twenty-first century dads. Their motivating stories and biblical insights will spur you to excellence in your fathering."
Ken R. Canfield, president, National Center for Fathering

"Many men father like they were fathered. This father-son team offers men help and hope by detailing how our heavenly Father fathers."
Robert Hicks, author, The Masculine Journey and Uneasy Manhood

"Fathering Like the Father is full of help for those who want to get fathering right under the authority of biblical truth. I enthusiastically recommend it."
Jay Kesler, chancellor, Taylor University

"In this unique book, Kenn and Jeff combine solid theory and rich personal practice. Knowing both these men, it's a cinch for me to recommend it."
Charles M. Sell, author, Helping Troubled Families and Family Ministry
