With honest humor and raw self-revelation, bestselling author Donald Miller tells the story of growing up without a father and openly talks about the issues that befall the fatherless generation. Raw and candid, Miller moves from self-pity and brokenness to hope and strength, highlighting a path for millions who are floundering in an age without positive male role models.
Speaking to both men and women who grew up without a father—whether that father was physically absent or just emotionally aloof—this story of longing and ultimate hope will be a source of strength. Single moms and those whose spouses grew up in fatherless homes will find new understanding of those they love as they travel along this literary journey.
This is a story of hope and promise. And if you let it, Donald Miller’s journey will be an informal guide to pulling the rotted beams out from our foundations and replacing them with something upon which we can build our lives.
“Unfortunately, Father Fiction is not stranger than life . . . it is true life for millions of children. I am fond of saying that children have a "hole in their souls" in the shape of their dad, and when a father is unable or unwilling to fill that hole, it leaves a woulnd that is not easily healed. Like Don, I too was a fatherless boy and am a wounded soul as a result. Writing this book has helped heal Donald. Reading it has helped heal me.”
“Nobody does truly honest, personal stories quite like Don Miller. And while this is his unique journey, there are steps along the way which we've all had to take, and questions we've all had to ask . . . about love, worth, significance, and meaning. Don's trek to those answers is a compelling read."
“Don Miller has written another book that seamlessly blends raw emotion, vivid storytelling, and a life-changing message—all infused with sophisticated humor. Father Fiction exposes the wounds incurred in Don's own childhood, then paints a picture of hope for a different kind of future. A future I certainly want to see come true for all young people."
