Wonderful instruction

This book provides an excellent biblical perspective on how to be a dad that leads his house in a manner that exalts the Lord. Great use of many biblical examples, straight from the word of God.

Great for dads struggling to lead a difficult home.

This is the first book I’ve finished in a decade that the Lord has brought my way. My family has went through so much I can’t believe it’s not a fictional story. After pushing back against the grain, I finally submitted and read a book on Biblical leadership. I’m so glad I did. Grace to you and ligonier literature has transformed my life from a desolate reprobate, to a reformed Christian who understands my fallenness, but the grace of God through his omniscience. Stay strong as a man, and I recommend you read this more than once and study the verses provided. Love you wife, and Shepard your children as the Lord commands. They need us greatly to lead with strength, and a soft touch. “A truly strong man isn’t afraid to be humble and approachable.

Where it takes you

This is a fantastic book. It includes a great amount of real live examples on how to be a better father. The author's point of view is easily taken and understood and with the riding style of John MacArthur it is very enticing and makes you want to continue to read. I would recommend this book to anyone with an open mind that is learning how to be a better parent and father.

nothing new but full of simple truth

simple message that didn't hold any punches, what we come to expect from John. No matter what Bible believing church you come from you will be able to appreciate this book. a firm reminder of a father's responsabilities.
