What an informative book on the importance a father has on the home and the children's lives short and long term. Father's I challenge you to take responsibility to treat your wives as queens and show that to your children daily. AND sacrifice everything for her and your children with all YOU got. YOU will be rewarded with heaven here on earth and eternally. The statistics on how many children grow up without a father intact were staggering. Every man and young man and person needs this message. Indeed, we are NEVER alone or fatherless as long as we know GOD is there for us ALWAYS. I have no doubt Todd every day YOU are becoming a better father to not only your daughters but to others that cross your path. God Speed to you and your daughters and keep writing.

While technically not fatherless, I have always been confused by the advice to allow God to be my Father. How? How does God embody characteristics that were lacking in my own father? How does He teach me about men? I was really hoping this book would answer this question. The author begins to, but it’s fairly superficial advice. (I wanted more!) The book also needs a lot of editing. It short, and a good editor would help him pull out and unpack some of the ideas, as well as clean up grammar and spelling.

In a charming, short, non-fiction tale we read about the struggles one man has had in terms of understanding and becoming a father. Fathering the Fatherless is written by Todd Johnson who tells us his experience growing up in a fatherless home. He recounts how this impacted his life and shaped the decisions he has made. It is clear that this is a topic that has affected Johnson greatly as he attempts to convey how his life was damaged by not having a father present in his life. Johnson shares statistics regarding fatherless homes and lays out the potential damage that can be done with such a significant absence. Johnson details how he found God and in that Father he was able to come to understand what it truly means to lead and care for children. The book is a short read and is written very earnestly. Johnson speaks from his personal point of view and lays out his argument that fatherless homes are becoming an epidemic in the United States of America. This is an issue he strongly believes in and he uses quotes from the scripture to remind readers what a father should truly be like. By sharing intimate details of his life Johnson creates a connection with his readers. We learn about his struggles, his poor decisions and the choices he has made in order to better himself. Johnson grew up in a fatherless home and almost inflicted that same pain on his own children. He details how finding God helped him see the potential he was wasting. It is clear that this is Johnson’s mission: his purpose is to enlighten others of their misguided ways and show them a path towards true fatherhood. All he wishes for is a world where children are cared for and loved by their emotionally and physically present mothers and fathers. While the basis of this book is endearing, the execution needs work. A multitude of spelling mistakes break up poor grammar and fractured sentences. At times it can be difficult to follow what the author is trying to get across to his readers. Statistics are used to support certain points of view, however they’re not referenced properly, which makes it difficult to separate the statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau and the statistics provided by other sources. This book would greatly benefit from an editor and proofreader. It has a specific point it wishes to share with others, but that gets lost in the poor execution of writing and style. If you are looking for an endearing, non-fiction read about how fatherlessness has been affecting children in the world, then Fathering the Fatherless by Todd Johnson is a short and sweet read. By seeing past the short-comings the reader can see how much care Johnson has put in to crafting his tale that reads more like an academic paper. At the end of the book there is a delightful interactive section that can help readers identify what fatherlessness is and how it can be addressed. There’s a little bit of something for everyone.
