    "In Search of a Father's Blessing, The Cry of a Lost Generation" by author Doug Stringer is a Christian Life/Religion/Relation book. This 159 page book is published by Whitaker House. On the cover is a silhouette of a father holding a son up in the air like they are playing.

    In his book, Author Stringer tackles the issue of fatherlessness and its effects on society, individuals, and faith. He explores multigenerational differences and relationships. He stresses the importance of our Heavenly Father in his thought provoking, insightful book. It is well thought, written, and organized. The writing is clear and easy to understand.

    Divided into three sections the book begins with "Part One: A Double Generation of Fatherlessness." This section has four chapters that are packed with biblical examples, stories, and scripture. In Chapter Four it explains that just like children with no father to guide, teach, or discipline them, people who neglect God follow a path of being rebellious and lawless.

    Section Two is entitled "The Roles of Mommies and Daddies" and has five chapters. With chapter headings "Leading By Example" and "Honor and Blessing" the author tells readers that older people can help younger ones in many ways, even how to communicate face-to-face. In these chapters he also deals with worshipping, standards and standard bearers, and being called by God.

    The final section is "My Daddy Rocks!" and has four chapters that discuss the Father of all nations, our inheritance, being adopted into the family of God, redemption, and prayer. There book ends with an Addendum that is positively touching and then information "about the author".

    I wasn't sure what to expect with this book, but it was very moving. It was a frank yet humble book that discusses how now more than ever Christians need to be leaders. We need to help the younger generation and lead them to our Heavenly Father. We need to be mentors, leaders, and examples for them. The book is biblically based with scripture listed throughout. Author Stringer uses personal examples and stories from others as well as quotes from leaders to emphasize his points.

    I believe any Christian would benefit from reading this book. If you need help with your Walk, this will provide it. If you are okay in your Walk, this book will give you ideas to help others, honor and serve God. I definitely recommend this moving book. I rated it a 5 out of 5 stars. A copy of this book was provided by The Book Club Network for my honest review.

    In Search of a Father's Blessing by Doug Stringer is a thought-provoking and inspirational book. The author believes "that at the core of every problem we experience as an individual, a generation, and even as a nation is disconnection from a father. It's an issue of breach, an issue of broken trust." Beginning with that premise he continues on to describe the generational differences and the need for multigenerational relationships. Relationships that mimic that of a Heavenly Father, relationships that actualize identity through affirmation, acceptance, and approval. Relationships that have the give and take of technical knowledge and skill of the youth with that of personal touch and face-to-face connection of the older generation. With scriptural references, quotes from spiritual leaders in the body of Christ and with examples from his own life and others, Stringer teaches readers about leadership. A leadership that guides, guards and governs by example, with a strong foundation built on Jesus Christ and is one characterized by servanthood and going the extra mile. The author writes with humility and urgency to help readers recognize the need to be intentional with their faith so as to bring revival to the younger generation and stand with them. The cry of all mankind is to know a father's love and Stringer reminds readers of God's desire to adopt us into His family...to recognize that He knows us by name. In Search of a Father's Blessing is an encouraging and yet impelling book that urges believers to know Who their Daddy is!

    I received a copy of this book through The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.

    I have heard a lot about this author. Growing up in Houston myself, I remember when Somebody Cares was started. Mr. Stringer has a big heart for the youth and the program is helpful in mentoring youth that are at-risk. It is a much needed program and has been very successful .

    Many children grow up with fathers and that void is felt everyday by them. God wants to be the Abba-Father to us. He wants us to have an intimate relationship with Him. The book is very intense at times, but written with such grace and compassion that I at times cried. We have forgotten who our Heavenly Father is. When you are little and are rejected by your father, that hurt carries over into adulthood. What is it like to know that you were never wanted as a child? How does it feel to know that you are not protected or loved? Those feelings can cause you to grow up and not trust anyone. God wants you to know that He is your Heavenly Father and He was always there when you cried yourself to sleep.

    The book is very well written and touches on subjects like "How to be a spiritual father and find a spiritual father." I especially liked the chapter about broken trust. Many of us have experienced the rejection by one or both of our parents. That hurt is deep and hard to overcome. God is there to heal our broken hearts, restore relationships and learn to trust again. It is comforting to know that , "He will never leave us or forsake us."

    I have been so encouraged by this book. It has helped me to release some pain from my childhood and try to understand why my parents were the way they were. I'm glad that my Heavenly Father loves me unconditionally .

    "God waits with open arms for His prodigals to return, and He has sent His Son to find the lost. Are you willing to go the extra mile and join Him?"

    I received a copy of this book from The BookClub Network for an honest review.
