Paperback with chapter small-group interaction questions
Did your father ever talk to you helpfully about girls and sexuality? When you became a father, did he give you any comfort, support, encouragement, or helpful advice? If you answered No, you're among up to 95% of men today.
When a man doesn't get what he needs from Dad in order to be a man, he feels ashamed—and angry. If he doesn't know that Jesus came to bring him and all men to "the Father from whom all fatherhood in heaven and on earth receives its true name," (Eophes. 3:17), he wanders aimlessly in search of manhood.
It's hard for him to find his career fit, to commit to a woman in marriage, bond in healthy relationship with other men, and feel competent as a dad himself. Often, he falls prey to addictions, casual sex, performance oriented religion, and a host of counterfeits to cover his shame.
If you're ready to get real with yourself and with God, to face what you didn't get from Dad, and go to your true Father to get it, this book is for you.
