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."

|My Husband and I read this May 17, 2010|
|My husband intially wanted to read this and as he read further into the book, he asked me to read certain parts because he thought it would help me understand him much better, and it did! I ended up reading the whole book and it really ministered to me as well. Ladies dont read this book and throw it at your man expecting him to read it and be what you think he should be =)|
|Overly Broad generalizations Apr 23, 2010|
|Disappointing, I found this one to be a collection of broad generalizations that are difficult if not impossible to apply in your daily life. Yes the author creates some interesting metaphors about the stages of one's life but the loss is in direct applications. Not that I disagree with the other reviews on this site, each reader should make up their own mind about books like this. But as to me, I found it to be a collection of broad generalizations that lack meaningful application.|
|Life changer! Apr 8, 2010|
|Wow! Watch out guys, this book will show you just how|
wounded you never knew you were. It has changed and re-shaped my life for the better, especially as a husband and father myself.
|REPACKAGED BOOK Feb 14, 2010|
|THIS BOOK IS NOTHING MORE THAN A REPACKAGED VERSION OF "THE WAY OF THE WILD HEART." FOR THOSE OF US WHO ENJOY ELDREDGE'S WORK, IT WAS DISAPPOINTING TO DISCOVER, AFTER PURCHASE, THAT THIS WAS ESSENTIALLY A SCALED BACK VERSION OF HIS EARLIER WORK. MY BUDGET DOES NOT LEND ITSELF TO BUYING A BOOK TWICE. READ "THE WAY OF THE WILD HEART" IF YOU HAVE TO CHOOSE.|
|Men and God in true perspective Feb 5, 2010|
|John Eldredge made clear in a previous work, "Wild at Heart," that he sees a crisis in the Christian church caused by the absence of men in many congregations. His main argument in support of the need for men to return is to show them that they are not obliged to check their manhood at the church door. Indeed, Christ himself is shown to be far from the meek, submissive soul that his mistaken followers and secret antagonists make Him out to be. Eldredge carries forward that perspective by making the case in "Fathered by God" for God's shaping men in full accord with their created nature. That is, God really wants men to be men who lead but do not oppress, who fight but do not pillage, who advise but do not hector. Alternating references to Scripture with common-sense observations (many rooted in the Bible, particularly Proverbs), the author of this heartfelt work means to show men that they need not war with their own nature to serve God but to let the Holy Spirit show them how to make that nature serves God's beneficent purposes. Those belonging to churches where men are active and participating may wonder why Elder's work is necessary, but the undeniable fact of female dominated congregations in many instances--not to mention the crisis of male behavior in many of those churches to which they belong (alcoholism, drug addiction, spousal and child abuse, philandering and adultery, divorce and violent crime), should be proof enough. Highly recommended for Christian men, but all others too.|
