Overview

"We believe Christian dads need to learn from God and need to hear from fathers who are living out the relationship." With that, father-and-son authors Kenn and Jeff Gangel launch this highly practical guide to fathering by learning from the attributes of the original-God the Father.
Exploring God's ways of communicating, forgiving, disciplining, and loving, the authors build a strong case for their conviction that fathering works best when patterned after the best. Their warm, reader-friendly style combines anecdotes from sports, popular culture, and personal experience. The result is a collection of useful, down-to-earth insights into a role that was sent from heaven.
Each chapter includes "Kenn's story" and "Jeff's story"-fascinating and, at times, confessional vignettes fathers of all ages can identify with-along with helpful pointers called "Making It Work," questions for discussion, and suggestions to stimulate father-child dialogue. Fathering Like the Father will inspire any dad or study group interested in a better grip on what the authors label their "premier calling."
