    One thought on “Being Dad: Father as a Picture of God's Grace”

    1. It's important to say right off that this is not a how-to book. What it is though is a very thoughtful and inspiring reflection on what it means to be a dad. Very good.

    2. Keith writes about "a theology of fatherhood, and an apologetic from fatherhood." As a soon to be father, this book provided me a lot to chew on about modeling the heavenly Father to our families in his forgiveness and generosity. And the chapter on masculinity was gold.

    3. Before sharing my own take, I must admit something: I am female. I may not be the best judge of a book about fatherhood and masculinity. However, I’ve watched good models in action--I’ve been blessed with an excellent father and husband of my own--so, for what it is worth, here is my response to Dr. Keith’s vision of what dads are supposed to be and do.Keith argues that men are created differently from women and that dads have been given a unique vocation distinct from the role of moms. He [...]

    4. As I was preparing to become a new father I knew that I needed to understand the connection between three things. The Gospel, being a father, and grace. This book ties those things together showing how a father should be to their children. I love his heart and passion in this book and recommend it to anyone.

    5. Man, I needed to hear this. A wonderful book on being a dad who is like the gracious father in the story of the prodigal son. In other words, it's a book encouraging and calling dads to be like the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    6. Scott Keith's premise of being a dad is refreshing. Instead of weighing down on what dads are not doing right, he focuses on strengths of dads. His thesis is that dads by their very nature are a picture of grace. It exhibits itself through big picture and laid back tendencies of men in general. Alone, this tendency may lead to a cheap grace approach to Christianity, but balanced with a strong woman, marriage itself becomes a strong balance between grace and law. Keith helped me better understand [...]

    7. Can't recommend this book highly enough. So many parenting books are "how-to" books, focusing on steps you need to take to be a better parent. This one focuses on God's grace to dads. Knowing and living that relationship of grace becomes our model for parenting our own children. We simply want to reflect God's relationship with us, share this same grace with the most important people in our lives.

    8. This book looks at the role of a father in the Christian home. The views it puts forth are important and is certainly worth the read.

    9. Great insights in this book, though it is a bit uneven. Big takeaway. The Father in the Parable of the Two Sons, forgives his son before the Prodigal even gets his apology out of his mouth.
