In this episode we have our friend John come by and discuss the book "Fathered By God," by John Eldridge. This book discusses the path to manhood that everyman takes. We start of by discussing how all men have been wounded by someone or something, but it is through those struggles that we rise up and become men. All men go through stages in life, like the warrior phase and the love phase. Come hear more about this book.
This is a description of the book from iTunes.
"There is a path leading to authentic manhood, cut by men who have gone before us, sons following in the footsteps of their fathers, generation after generation. There are perils along the trail, even disasters all the more reason to rely on the guidance of a Father who has gone before."
But in an age when true fathers are in short supply, how do you find the path to manhood? How do you steer clear of the dangers?
John Eldredge calls men back to a simple and reassuring truth: "God is our Father. In life's trials and triumphs, God is initiating boys and men through the stages of manhood from Beloved Son to Cowboy to Warrior to Lover to King to Sage."
