Book Review

Being a Dad Who Leads by John MacArthur

The purpose of this book is to use Scripture to describe the role of a father in the family setting. As usual MacArthur does an excellent job. There are 6 chapters that fill this 143 page book. MacArthur provides the right balance of Scripture and explanation.

I think the final paragraph on page 140 sums up the book nicely:

"As a father, then, you are called to be strong and courageous. You are urged to live with conviction and not waver when opposition comes your way. You are to summon your courage from the assurance of God's presence, from knowing you are pursing a just cause, and from the promise of God's sovereign power over all things. And you are to pass on your strength and courage by exhorting your children, encouraging them, and imploring them. As you do so, you will fulfill your obligation to ensure they walk upon and stay upon the path God has called them to."

This is a great book to give someone as a gift.
