Publisher's Summary

There is a path leading to authentic manhood, cut by men who have gone before us, sons following in the footsteps of their fathers, generation after generation. There are perils along the trail, even disasters - all the more reason to rely on the guidance of a father who has gone before. 

But in an age when true fathers are in short supply, how do you find the path to manhood? How do you steer clear of the dangers? 

John Eldredge calls men back to a simple and reassuring truth: God is our father. In life's trials and triumphs, God is initiating boys and men through the stages of manhood from beloved son to cowboy to warrior to lover to king to sage. 

Fathered by God maps out the path of manhood - not more rules, not another list of principles, not formulas, but a sure path men have followed for centuries before us. 

Find that path, and become the man God sees in you.

great reading

Books read by the author are very hit-or-miss, and unfortunately I'd have to say more often it's a miss. This was just the opposite. This may be the best author reading I've heard. The content was wonderful and exactly what I need, and I felt like John and I were sitting in a room together having a conversation.

great listen

I listen to books while driving. A good mix of stories, scripture, and interpretation. It's your turn. Go for it.
