The Good Dad
When it comes to parenting, we all need help. Relationships are most certainly the most important aspect to life. If we don’t have relationships with others, we are not going to experience the abundant life. We need others to invest in us and we need to invest in others.
Jim Daly grew up in brokenness between him and the father-like men in his life. His dad, an alcoholic damaged their relationship early on. His step-father was absent also, and his foster-father was anti-Jim and anti-father/son. You would think that Jim would reproduce this absenteeism in his own son’s life, but God was at work in Jim’s life early on and even now.
You see, through grace, God has shaped Jim into a Good Dad and no matter your family background, God can do the same with you. You do not have to repeat the process that you were a part of through a broken family.
One of the most intimidating factors of parenting is realizing you’re not perfect, but that’s the beauty of it! The process is about growing in grace, patience, testing, and all relationships, even the parent-child relationships. The author, Jim, has plenty of failure stories but also stories of how God used him to love his children and show them who God was in character and nature.
You’ll find this book endorsed by some quality conservative spokesmen who also want to be the best dad and parents that they can be. This is a book that will linger on the shelves of bookstores and on the nightstands in homes for years to come!
