Hungry for Wholeness brings to your table a full plate of wise insight and hopeful encouragement. By giving voice to the history the author shares with her own father, and by recounting the stories of six other children, Giji Dennard presents testimonies of reconciliation that whet the appetite for wholeness. Through these accounts, one learns that all fathers and children crave love and trust in their relationships, and fathers play crucial roles in nurturing their children's development. Breakdowns in fathering inevitably lead to deep wounds, and reconciliation flows as a blessing from the hand of our heavenly Father, as God reaches out with His grace and healing.
Giji Dennard's book, Hunger for Wholeness, knits together timeless truths and touching testimonies and provides a poignant reminder that fathers matter! She writes thoughtfully about father wounds and deficits, and why they must be addressed for complete healing and wholeness of heart. But her most important words are found in the last two chapters, where she weaves together the natural and spiritual dimensions of fatherhood. Those chapters, alone, are worth the price of the book.

Through my work at the Center, I encounter countless men and women who are casualties of the crisis of fatherlessness and are now walking wounded, with a hole where their father should have been. In Hungry for Wholeness, Giji Dennard shares compelling, real-life examples from some of these wounded ones - and in the midst of their stories, Giji weaves in the antidote that will bring real wholeness to their hearts and lives. Giji's book offers real help and hope to sons, daughters and fathers.
