As a Pastor and Father I am always looking for books about manhood, bravery, being a better husband and being a better Father. Jim Daly is the president and CEO of focus on the family and the author of several books.
His new book "The Good Dad" is a journey towards becoming the Father God has always meant you to be.
I truly am glad for Jim and this book - this is a great book and it really makes you stop and think about the importance of Fatherhood. Naturally Jim is a Christian and so much of his book is based on the Bible and characters from the Bible. Because Jim is a CEO and an author of past books - he naturally has an easy to read style. Plus he also has an interesting life with plenty of stories that fit well into his book.
I liked how this book wasn't just a bunch of "fluff" or "page filler," Jim actually takes the time to go further and really ask honest questions about what it means to be a Dad.
Yes, Jim does talk about parental abuse a little, it is a part of his story, but even if it isn't a part of your story, it doesn't get in the way from what he is trying to share.
I think ultimately this book will succeed where Jim wants it to. Men who read this will want to be better Dads.
Thank you to Zondervan for this preview copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Well, who wouldnâ€™t want to be? If you are like me, you wonder often if you are a good Dad. Jim Daly, president of Focus on the Family, is one I would want to hear talk on the subject. We need all the help we can get.
Iâ€™ll admit that I did not exactly expect what I read here. First, this wasnâ€™t just straight principles. It wasnâ€™t just a list of what you had better do either. It was Mr. Daly telling what he had learned from the three father figures in his lifeâ€“his real father, his stepfather, and his foster father. They all bombed out and were gone from his life by the time he was twelve, with each one being progressively worse. Coupled with the death of his kind mother, these men inflicted great trauma in his life. It was the kind of trauma that speaks to what is at stake in being a father.
He quoted a few of the horrific statistics on â€œvanishing dadsâ€ and the far-reaching effects upon our society, but he clearly came from another direction overall. He explained how he felt when the Dads failed him. One on the football field when his Dad was the only one not there, later when his father was drunk at his baseball game, or when his stepdad left after his motherâ€™s funeral, all the way to when his stepdad made a wild and false accusation, we felt the pain with him.
Why was this book helpful? He made us realize perfection was not ours to have. That viewpoint is more likely to make us throw up our hands and walk away. But we can figure out what is most important. We can focus there. We can learn to yell less, to stop overreacting and remember kids go through phases, and to make a big deal of only what is really big. We can decide which rules are important and let the others go.
His explanation on page 93 on four types of parenting stylesâ€“uninvolved, permissive, authoritative, and authoritarianâ€“was profound. Three of the four are no good. Like the little bearâ€™s porridge was just right, so is an authoritative parenting style. We Dads ever battle crossing over to the authoritative mode, or maybe itâ€™s just me!
This book succeeds because in a roundabout way it keeps grace and the gospel from being swallowed up in harsh law. Though it challenged me, it made me fell better instead of worse. That is a tall order for a book to Dads!
I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissionâ€™s 16 CFR, Part 255 .
