My parents didn't have much in the way of solid, Christian parenting books when they were raising us back in the 80's and 90's, so I'm extremely grateful for the influx of resources like Shepherding a Child's Heart, Gospel-Powered Parenting, and Give Them Grace that have been published for the next generation of dads and moms. I am no less grateful for the book I just finished: My Friend, My Hero, My Dad by Stephen Altrogge. Actually, I am more grateful for this little book than any book I've read on the subject for four of reasons.

It's a parenting book, but it's also a biography - Altrogge uses his father's example as a catalyst for instructing other fathers in the ways of raising their children in the admonition of the Lord. This approach was powerful for me because all of the instruction given in the book had been exemplified by a real man. And you never get the impression Altrogge's dad is anything but an ordinary guy, unlike the impression you get when you read a biography on Charles Spurgeon or George Muller. His faithfulness combined with his normalcy seemed to say, "If you trust the Lord and obey his Word, you can do this too."

It's a parenting book written by a son about his dad - This matters because it takes more than the experience of mediocre parenting to inspire a child to write a parenting book based on his parent's example. This book would mean something quite different if it were written by a friend or colleague of this man. But his son wrote it, which means he saw his dad at his worst and weakest and yet still thought there was a wealth of help in his example to fill these pages.

Saw this deal on Twitter the other day and decided to download it. I come from a long line of divorced families, and marriage/parenting is something that I enjoy learning about. I especially enjoyed Stephen's book because it didn't feel like a parenting book. Much of the book contains stories of Stephen's relationship with his father, and how his father was always looking for opportunities to teach him about God, faith, family, and life. The stories are funny, entertaining, captivating, and purposeful. I found myself wanting to meet this man and ask him questions about being a father! The book also contained many excellent examples of how a godly father would react to both everyday interactions and tough situations. I would recommend it to any new father, and I already have.

What I love about this book is that it shows us the example of a man with theological convictions that have implications. God humbled himself by becoming a servant leader, generous king, and to display the love of the Father. Because Christ has saved us to image him, we are now to live lives that mimic these characteristics. Not all of us will practice the principles the same way, but reading this book has got the wheels in my head turning. I really appreciated the specificity with which Stephen wrote. I recommend this boom to you!

Reflections on what it means to be a Christian father. I love Stephen's writing style which is transparent, accessible, and yet pushes us to aspire to be more.
