Practical and spiritual guide to being a father in the modern world
In a time when the very idea of the Christian family is being lost, the role of the father has been devalued to the point of seeming optional. This booklet looks at this most delicate but formative of relationships exploring it historically, and in the scriptures but also giving present-day examples and practical advice on how a father can lead his children and his family to fulfilment, happiness and faith.
