"We believe Christian dads need to learn from God and need to hear from fathers who are living out the relationship." With that, father-and-son authors Kenn and Jeff Gangel launch this highly practical guide to fathering by learning from the attributes of the original-God the Father. Exploring God's ways of communicating, forgiving, disciplining, and loving, the authors build a strong case for their conviction that fathering works best when patterned after the best. Their warm, reader-friendly style combines anecdotes from sports, popular culture, and personal experience. The result is a collection of useful, down-to-earth insights into a role that was sent from heaven. Each chapter includes "Kenn's story" and "Jeff's story"-fascinating and, at times, confessional vignettes fathers of all ages can identify with-along with helpful pointers called "Making It Work," questions for discussion, and suggestions to stimulate father-child dialogue. Fathering Like the Father will inspire any da
-Publisher

Fathering comes naturally to God. The rest of us can use some pointers. Who better to provide them than the Father who truly knows best?Following that reasoning, father-and-son authors Kenn and Jeff Gangel explore God's ways of forgiving, communicating with, disciplining, and loving his children. Each chapter is packed with amusing anecdotes and personal vignettes that illustrate how fathers can model godly character for their children. Fathering Like the Father will inspire any dad or men's group with a heavenly perspective on fatherhood."The Gangel team will help you wrestle with the critical issues surrounding your fathering role and remind you of God's hope for twenty-first century dads. Their motivating stories and biblical insights will spur you to excellence in your fathering." Ken R. Canfield, president, National Center for Fathering"Many men father like they were fathered. This father-son team offers men help and hope by detailing how our heavenly Father fathers." Robert Hicks, author, The Masculine Journey and Uneasy Manhood"Fathering Like the Father is full of help for those who want to get fathering right under the authority of biblical truth. I enthusiastically recommend it." Jay Kesler, chancellor, Taylor University "In this unique book, Kenn and Jeff combine solid theory and rich personal practice. Knowing both these men, it's a cinch for me to recommend it." Charles M. Sell, author, Helping Troubled Families and Family Ministry

"The Gangel team will help you wrestle with the critical issues surrounding your fathering role and in the midst remind you of God's hope for twenty-first century dads. Their motivating stories and biblical insights will spur you to excellence in your fathering." -Ken R. Canfield, president, National Center for Fathering"Many men father like they were fathered. Unfortunately, the impact of absent and uninvolved fathers is the psychic scar tissue hidden so carefully within the masculine soul. This father-son team offers men help and hope by detailing how our Heavenly Father fathers." -Dr. Robert Hicks, author, The Masculine Journey and The Christian Family in Changing Times"Fathering Like the Father is the closest thing to the central issue of our cultural malaise. It is full of help for those who want to get fathering right under the authority of biblical truth. I enthusiastically recommend it." -Dr. Jay Kesler, chancellor, Taylor University "As a son who was blessed with a godly dad, I found the message of Fathering Like the Father to be particularly meaningful. It reminded me of the enormous influence my father had on my life. Kenn and Jeff Gangel have drawn from their experiences as father and son to produce some compelling lessons in parenting. This book is for dads who understand that their children are gifts from God to be both cherished and nourished." -Peter Nanfelt, president, Christian & Missionary Alliance"An excellent volume. As you search for knowledge and inspiration on how to become a godly parent-educator and trainer of your children, you'll do well to study the Bible-centered principles of this book." -Paul A. Kienel, LL.D., founder and president emeritus, Association of Christian Schools International "This book is unique. Not many fathers and sons have a solid enough relationship to write together about fathering; besides, both are biblical scholars, educators, and specialists in family ministry. In Fathering Like the Father, Kenn and Jeff combine solid theory and rich personal practice. Knowing both these men, it's a cinch for me to recommend it." -Charles M. Sell, author of Helping Troubled Families and Family Ministry"Written by a father-son team I greatly admire, Fathering Like the Father is the ideal handbook for every dad to reflect on the intriguing qualities demonstrated by our heavenly Father. This volume is thoroughly biblical, contemporary, and intensely practical."--Ron Blue, former president of CAM International"This is not merely a 'how to' manual on parenting. It is much more in that the important concepts presented are drawn from Scripture and illustrated in a practical format with powerful personal illustrations."--Dennis E. Williams, dean of institutional assessment, Southern Baptist Seminary"This is a thoughtful book that stimulates productive thinking, provides helpful insights, and interests readers in biblical fathering. Outstanding, instructive, creative, and biblically sound. Recommended for fathers, families, youth groups, and study groups."--Byrle Kynerd, headmaster, Briarwood Christian School"A book such as this couldn't be more appropriate for the community of believers. Our culture needs the message of this book. Kenn and Jeff Gangel have touched a vital nerve for every father or would-be father. Warm illustrations and honest reflections frame the powerful and timely message of this book for every Christian father. The plausibility of the message is validated by the credibility of the life experiences of this father and son team."--Steven C. Babbit, director of publishing services, Association of Christian Schools International"The Gangels are a father and son team who've done all us dads a great service. They've brought us sound biblical teaching, powerful principles, and practical suggestions on how to build healthy lifelong relationships with our children. Fathering Like the Father provides the essential ingredients to help us be the kind of fathers that all of us year
