Review: Father Hunger

This review is from: Father Hunger: Why God Calls Men to Love and Lead Their Families (Paperback)

The most obvious feature of the Father of Jesus Christ is His generosity. He is generous with His glory (John 1:14), with His tasks (John 5:18), with His protection (John 10:28-32), with His home (John 14:1-2), and with His joy (John 16:23-24). The Father gives (John 3:34-36). The Father gives His Son (John 3:16; 18:11); the Father gives His Spirit (John 14:16-17); the Father gives Himself (John 14:22-24).

Learning this about the Father who is a Spirit, who is intangible, should stir us deeply. He is seeking worshipers who will worship Him in Spirit and in truth — in short, who will become like He is. And what is He like? He is generous with everything. Is there anything He has that he has held back? And what should we — tangible fathers — be like? The question is terribly hard to answer, but not because it is difficult to understand. (Father Hunger, 204-205)

Wilson has once again tackled a hugely controversial topic and again I am glad he did! There is one thing Wilson is not afraid to do is stand up for the not so popular Biblical truths that our world despises.

I commend Wilson’s book to any man, with or without children young or old. There needs to be a clarion call for repentance and faithful fatherhood. This book is a good start.

Now that being said, Wilson can also offer so much more than a polemic to unfaithful fathers. He has a deep grasp on biblical worldview and philosophical issues with a humble and gracious spirit. Knowing that also gives the book credibility.

I received this book in exchange for the book review from the Booksneeze Blogger Review program. I was not required to submit a positive review.
