CHAPTERS FOR A FATHERLESS GENERATION
With honest humor and raw self-revelation, bestselling author Donald Miller tells the story of growing up without a father and openly talks about the issues that befall the fatherless generation. Raw and candid, Miller moves from self-pity and brokenness to hope and strength, highlighting a path for millions who are floundering in an age without positive male role models.
Speaking to both men and women who grew up without a father—whether that father was physically absent or just emotionally aloof—this story of longing and ultimate hope will be a source of strength. Single moms and those whose spouses grew up in fatherless homes will find new understanding of those they love as they travel along this literary journey.
This is a story of hope and promise. And if you let it, Donald Miller’s journey will be an informal guide to pulling the rotted beams out from our foundations and replacing them with something upon which we can build our lives.
Being a 40 year old man without a father this definitely struck a nerve more than once. Several times I had to take a breath and set the book down. I guess I didn’t know others felt the way I do. I learned a lot from this book. Thanks Don and John for sharing this with the rest of us.
This is the first Donald Miller book I have read. I have three boys who grew up without fathers and this book was an invaluable book for me to read. He brought a whole new perspective for me to think about and share with my boys. I will be ordering morencopies for my boys as well as for counselors who are helping them deal with the fallout.
I hate finishing a Donald Miller book.
It is always sad when I finish one of Don's books as I relish his insight and humor. I have seen him speak twice, and read his blog. Don is the real deal and a real man. But what's up with the editing on this one?
