Fathers play an important role in so many of our lives. Our lives have been enriched by the blessing of fathers, whether it be biological, adoptive or spiritual fathers. The ARC contributors are sharing their staff picks for dads this Father’s Day! Check out their picks!
The One Year Devotions for Men by Stuart Briscoe
One of the most important things that a parent can do for their child is be in the Word of God everyday. This devotional by Stuart Briscoe is a great way to do that! Not only will it lead fathers through scripture reading, but also provide supplementary wisdom from a godly man. A perfect gift for this Father’s Day!
Championship Grandfathering by Carey Casey
We can’t forget about grandfathers! Championship Grandfathering is the perfect gift for the grandfather in your life. Grandfathers play an influential role in a child’s life by modeling truth, love, and grace in the ways they lead their family. Carey Casey tells stories from his years of experience as a father and a grandfather alongside insightful research and practical steps. A great gift for a new grandpa who wants to build a legacy that will impact the generations to come.
A Minute of Vision for Men by Roger Patterson
“A Minute Of Vision For Men stood out to me for two key reasons. First, extremely concise, actionable pieces of information are increasingly what today’s consumers seek out – myself included. It’s hard to sit down with a 300+ page book if the chapters are too long and the action is too scarce. What many of us desire are quick but proven insights we can apply immediately.
Second, being a man with vision for your life is becoming rarer as the years pass by. Fewer people are identifying with Christianity as the core driver in their life, and this manifests in every other area of life. Many people – especially men – are looking for a mission to be on, but they don’t know where to look to find that mission. Patterson’s work provides tangible guidance for this very problem.”
War Story by Steven Elliott
My father greatly values learning about historic wars, so my pick for the Father’s Day gift guide (and my own to-read list) is War Story by Steven Elliott. This powerful memoir examines the aftermath of the death of an American hero by “friendly fire” in Afghanistan when Elliott and fellow soldiers mistook an ally for the enemy. The sheer depth of tragedy and grief, as well as the eventual hope, offers a first-hand account of the gravity of war and its wake. Not only is War Story shaping up to be a profound read, but “All of the author’s proceeds from the writing of this book will be donated to organizations serving the mental health needs of the active duty and veteran community.”
We hope this inspires you as you think about ways to encourage and celebrate the fathers in your life this Father’s Day.
