We live in a culture in which absentee fatherhood is the norm. Pastor and parenting authority Douglas Wilson brings a powerful message about its true costs to our families and society and encourages men to be the fathers God calls them to be. Fatherlessness is a"rot that is eating away at the modern soul," writes Douglas Wilson-and theproblem goes far beyond physical absence: "Most of our families are starvingfor fathers, even if Dad is around, and there's a huge cost to our children andour society because of it." Father Hunger takes a thoughtful, timely, richlyengaging excursion into our cultural chasm of absentee fatherhood. Blendingleading-edge research with incisive analysis and real-life examples, Wilson: Traces a range of societal ills-from poverty and crime to joyless feminism and paternalistic government expansion-to a vacuum of mature masculinity · Explainsthe key differences between asserting paternal authority and reestablishingtrue spiritual fathering Uncovers the corporate-fulfillment fallacy and other mistaken assumptions that undermine fatherhood Extols the benefits of restoring fruitful fathering, from stronger marriages to greater economic liberation Filled with practical ideas and self-evaluation tools, Father Hunger both encourages andchallenges men to "embrace the high calling of fatherhood," becoming the dadsthat their families and our culture so desperately need them to be.
