John Sowers is the "voice crying in the wilderness," calling us to turn our faces toward the devastation caused by fatherlessness. This beautifully written book is not a wringing of the hands, but a powerful and strategic call to action. --William Paul Young, author of The Shack
I believe that the church can solve the problem of fatherlessness. And this book is our call. It is our call to something that the biblical writer James calls "true religion," our call to do something that matters deeply to the heart of God. --Gabe Lyons, author of The Next Christians
Fatherless Generation illuminates the longing and hurt that fuel the decisions of a generation seeking acceptance, hope, assurance, and truth. With prose that is personal, direct, and eloquent, Fatherless Generation is emotionally charged and boldly honest, and it holds the key to real healing for the reader, whether they are fatherless or love someone who is. --Dan Merchant, writer/director of Lord, Save Us from Your Followers
John Sowers has tapped into the powerful theme of belonging and accurately describes the fatherless generation that is longing for it. Through John's personal story, he exposes the shame of millions growing up without fathers and points the reader in the direction of hope and compassionate action. This is a powerful book. --Dr. Tom Phillips, vice president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association
