REVIEW: “God’s Words of Life for Fathers”

by ggeurs

This is a review of the book God’s Words of Life for Fathers from Zondervan Publishers.

Sometimes, the simple books are the most enjoyable ones to read. God’s Words of Life for Fathers is one of those types of books. Its function is simple: Provide a series of Bible verses on different topics related to being a father, and after each subject’s collection of verses, provide a short reflection which is loaded with brief insights and practical advice.

This book is useful as a topical devotion for dads, or as a motivational go-to source for wisdom on different topics of fatherhood. The book ranges in subjects from anger to integrity to work. While I might fault the editors for the fact that the Bible passages used in this book are from the 2011 edition of the New International Version (I am a fan of the NIV84), the passages chosen lend themselves well to the devotional reflects contained at the end of each topic/chapter.

As a gift for a dad, I cannot say enough good things about this book. Even dad’s who would balk at the idea of religion in general can find plenty of useful material, as the writer of the reflections -Robert Wolgemuth- presents applicable insights that all dad’s can relate to.

If you’re a dad looking for inspiration, buy this book. If you know a dad who needs encouragement, buy this book. If you want a concise study on different topics related to being a parent, but this book.

I received my copy of this book for free through the BookLook Bloggers program in exchange for reviewing it. I was not obligated to post a positive review; the opinions contained are mine.
