Father FictionMary Bartholomew, via The Good Book Stall
Donald Miller’s father left his wife to bring up his son, and Miller gives her all credit for doing the very best she could. She worked long hours yet still managed to do voluntary work with her church yet whatever she did, she was not and could not be the father figure he so desperately needed and wanted. Despite all attempts to find a father figure and with some success especially with John and his family, this need continued into adulthood and has coloured his whole life.
Now he has channelled his experience into helping the multitude of fatherless boys in America by founding the The Mentoring Project, www.thementoringproject.org ‘inspiring and equipping faith communities to mentor fatherless boys’.
This book however is the very personal and emotional story of Miller’s own life from those early days to the present time. My own father died while I was in my teens and although I know he loved me he was too ill to be the father I longed for so I had some understanding of where the author was coming from. I cannot say I ‘enjoyed’ this book, but I did read it with enthusiasm and highly recommend it to be read by as many as possible.
