Books for Godly Fathers
A godly father is one who leads his family well in the worship of the Triune God. He is one who brings up his children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord — one who loves his wife as Christ loved the church and gave his life for her. The life of a godly father causes his children to say with John G. Paton, ‘He walked with God, why may not I?’
In order to lead his family well in encouraging, comforting, and urging them to live lives worthy of God, a father needs to be properly equipped. For one week, we’ve given special prices to the hand-picked books below to aid fathers in their work. These books are in three categories: books on parenting (Thoughts For Young Men and Catechizing Our Children), on being a godly man (Following Jesus and The Godly Man’s Picture), and examples of godly men (John Elias and Heroes). We hope these categories will help you as you shop for a father this week.
Think of the men of God in your life and consider giving them a good Christian book that will encourage and equip them as spiritual leaders this year, and in the years to come.
