There are enough books about how to be a good father to fill a bloke's shed.
This book is different.
This book goes back to the drawing board—the Bible—and answers the question: what is a father anyway?
And the answer will give dads a whole new way to think about their role and what they are trying to do.
But it's not a book of 'theory'. Drawing on his years of experience as a father of five, Tony Payne provides bucket loads of practical wisdom and advice.Fatherhood
will, without doubt, become the classic book on the subject and is essential reading for all fathers, prospective fathers, and anyone who thinks fatherhood is important.

"Reading this short book is like walking into a secure and happy home. You find that your job as a father is more significant than you thought it was and there is opportunity to check the reasons and also the down to earth application. Best of all—with this godly wisdom—you don't get tempted to the house next door called "leave it to someone else" nor to the other side called "you've done a hopeless job". Read it to be a secure and happy home builder!" Simon Manchester, St Thomas' Church, North Sydney.
