Time with God for Fathers Review

Time with God for Fathers
Author:  Jack Countryman

Time with God for Fathers is a wonderful little gift book perfect for Father’s Day. I’m giving my copy to my husband. Any man with young children will appreciate this book if he’s truly dedicated to his role as father in the lives of his children as outlined by God.

Each page of the book offers both scripture and a challenge to dad to be the man God is calling him to be. Titles like “Godliness in the Family begins with You”, “A Father’s Lifestyle is Contagious”, “Courage to be a Father of Integrity” speak to the content of this small book.

Today, young fathers especially need straight talk about what it means to be a father and what God expects of them. We all say we wish parenthood came with a manual. Well, it does. The Bible. Seeing that the scripture is as relevant today as the day it was written is an important step in acknowledging the gift and responsibility of fatherhood.

Time with God doesn’t pull any punches. “Honesty and integrity in every area of a father’s life is a blueprint for the man God wishes you to be.” Acknowledging that how a father lives his life helps shape the roll his child will play in society and as a future parent is critically important. I appreciate a book that doesn’t sugar coat that responsibility and assures men that they are not only the head of the household but are empowered through prayer and time on their knees to lead their family along the path God intended for them.

What a great message to read this Easter weekend, when the greatest Father of them all sacrificed his son so that all of His children might share eternal life with Him in heaven.

***I received this book free of charge from BookSneeze for my honest review.
