I have been given the opportunity to do some reviews on some books from a few different publishers. Some of them do not quite fit into the focus I have for Living Infuzion, but obviously have some good information. Here are some of my perspectives on some pretty good books! Enjoy!

Father Hunger: Why God Calls Men to Love and Lead Their Families

It is encouraging to see so many books coming out about this topic, or maybe as a young father of three, I just find them all.  “Father Hunger” by Douglas Wilson is a fresh look at this topic, using modern research to show how the Bible was right about how the family unit should work from the beginning.

This book touches on all the major issues going against the role of the father in the family, and over the years there has been a huge attack on the father from culture…. Maybe that is linked to how people perceive their father, and how that usually links to how they see their heavenly father. 

Wilson addresses, the absent father, what masculinity should look like and the twisted view of how it DOES look in culture.  He touches on atheism and the links to how aggressive atheism can be linked to anger with God based on relationship with the earthly father.  He addresses the role of leader in the home, poverty and crime and their impact on others.

The most disturbing section, I think, is the number of men in churches being on a decline, and in MANY cases, just falling off the chart.  This is such a disturbing trend, and one that real men would change if they truly, TRULY understood accountability for their actions, and the role they have been given as fathers.

This is a great book on the topic, and one that I highly recommend to fathers of all ages that want what God wants for their house.  Step up men, and be the father you are called to be.

This book was provided to me by Booksneeze for my review.  I am free to give an honest opinion in this review.
