About the Author
Steve Farrar is the founder and chairman of Men's Leadership Ministries in Bryan/College Station, Texas, and brings his message to thousands of men each year. He holds a master's degree from Western Seminary and an earned doctorate from Dallas Theological Seminary.
An updated 1990 book shows how Christian fathers can lead by being fair and firm with their children, and faithful and loving toward their wives. This back-to-basics lesson references its biblical foundations but uses accessible secular language to remind fathers of the power they have to do good in their families. There's no judgment--only encouragement to take more initiative and responsibility. Raymond Todd's reading is a big reason the audio will appeal to men at all levels of spirituality. He's a humble narrator who is both confident in the author's teachings and respectful of his audience. Along with the can-do tone of the writing, Todd's warmth and steadiness make this a memorable lesson. T.W. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine --This text refers to the Audible Audio Edition edition.

How? Quite simply, Farrar writes like he knows exactly where you are. You may anywhere from what he describes as being spiritually anorexic or bulimic, or you may be a "point man" - it doesn't matter. He will help you along to the next level. He is realistic enough to recognize that after 25 years of bad habits, you most likely won't be reformed overnight. However, he offers good encouragement to keep at it, do what you know God created you to do.
Chapter like "Real Men Don't" and "A One-Woman Kind of Man" will leave many men uncomfortable. Guys, I think too many of us are a "husband of one wife" physically but are cheating mentally or even emotionally, or at least are just not dedicated enough to living our lives God's way. Farrar will encourage you to not just be a husband of one wife, but to be the kind of guy God wants you to be as a matter of total lifestyle. As the book of James points out, "when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin." I think many of us can relate.
Although it does have some material on being a father (such as chapters 2, 9, and 10), it's not primarily a book on being a dad. I think Farrar has his priorities in the right place: you can't be a Good Dad until you are a Good and Godly Man. Then come back and read Farrar's "King Me" or one of the 972 other good books on being a dad.
Really, the book will probably not really give you any new information. So why get it? Because it will reinforce what you knew to be true, and will (perhaps, with God's help) help you to not just be a hearer of the word, but a doer as well.
