Only God Can Make A Dad is the latest short story collection from Joe Wheeler. These 12 short stories point to the difference between being a father in a biological sense and a dad in a deeper and spiritual sense. Wheeler brings stories that emphasize God-like character traits and that portray fathers earnestly seeking to become 'dads.' ...each book purchaser perceives fatherhood as very different from being a 'dad.' To be a 'dad' is to be a work in progress, to be in a fluid process of internalizing character traits that mirror the ultimate template of divine fatherhood but are qualified by sinful tendencies and all too frequent mistakes and lapses of good judgment.
