    This book was easy to read and I enjoyed the fact that the author was able to express both the child's point of view (how he was impacted by the lack of fathering he had) and also he talked about how he felt as a Dad to his two sons and how his experiences as a child gave him insight as a son and also as a Father. I believe it should prove to be encouraging to Fathers to spend the time to read and glean all you can from this book.

    The Good Dad-Being The Father You Were Meant To Be, Writen and Read by Jim Daly, President and CEO of Focus on the Family, and Published by Zondervan on Briliance Audio.

    Jim is an expert on Fatherhood. As the Leader of an Organization that was established especially to support the family only God could lift an almost parentless child to such a position.

    Jim's Dad was an alcoholic who left the family when he was young, then his mother died and his step-father abandoned him and his brothers and sisters and he was then raised in a Forster Family where the Father figure accused Jim of trying to kill him.

    Jim reads letters from men about their fathers and uses biblical teaching to establish Gods Father Heart. At times I think Jim is barely holding back tears as he reads letters or talks about his trip to Dodger Stadium with his Real Father in his later childhood years.

    The fact that it is never too late to be a Good Father, that damage done can be healed through the working of the Holy Spirit and Love of Jesus. Jim speaks of partnering with your wife and understanding that Mothers and Fathers have different rolls but that Unity is most important.

    Love and gentleness are as much a part of being a man as being the protector. Jim's voice is the same heard weekly on the radio and speaks with a quiet confidence of someone who knows what not to do as well as what God calls men to be as fathers. This is an excellent book that I highly recommend be listened to as an AudioBook

    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.
