Are we living in a "post-father" era? This book is a wake-up call to men and women, challenging them to understand the crisis of fatherlessness in the world and to examine its impact on our culture and in individual lives. The author also identifies the different types of father wounds, the specific scars that men and women carry, and provides personal steps for healing and experiencing God's Father Love. As a generation, one of the biggest issues we face is fatherlessness. We have a generation of boys, raised by women, who don't know how to be a man, husband, or father; and a generation of girls raised without the protection, affirmation, or wholesome affection of a father. In this book, Waylon Ward tackles these tough issues head on. Dr. John A.
