There is a path leading to authentic manhood, cut by men who have gone before us, sons following in the footsteps of their fathers, generation after generation. There are perils along the trail, even disasters—all the more reason to rely on the guidance of a Father who has gone before.
But in an age when true fathers are in short supply, how do you find the path to manhood? How do you steer clear of the dangers?
John Eldredge calls men back to a simple and reassuring truth: God is our Father. In life's trials and triumphs, God is initiating boys and men through the stages of manhood. Through personal stories and practical guidance, Eldredge provides a map through the six stages of a man’s journey:
Fathered by God maps out the path of manhood—not more rules, not another list of principles, not formulas, but a sure path men have followed for centuries before us.
Find that path and become the man God sees in you.

Once, twice - get it, just get it
I got this book two years ago, started to read and then lost interest due to, oh well whatever you want to call it. I picked it up again after started Every Man a Warrior discipleship and found out that God was actually showing me this concept of fathering. Oh my, I have learned a lot and want to keep developing this concept in real life, meaning I want to live it, experience it and embrace it. John made a great impact in my life through this book, God put him as a sage to this king.
Thank you John, you have no idea how much God talk to me through your work.
