This book is part of the core curriculum, so-to-speak, of Youth With A Mission. It talks about how the Lord relates to us as a loving Father and how our relationship with our own dads and other authority figures can inhibit our ability to respond to Him as such.

When I read the book aloud to my husband, we found it to be a bit dry in spots. I would've liked to see more real-life examples, as these often help readers grasp what an author is trying to tell them. Nevertheless, there were some "ah-ha

This is a really excellent book. It covers a wide range of topics, basically under the subject of authority, fatherhood, love, brokenness and leadership.
The author clearly has drawn wisdom from his walk with Christ, and produces some advice and observations that will stay with me. Well worth a read.

I found this book very interesting. It was easy to read and some high level ideas made so simple by using some brilliant anecdotes from McClungs life. He writes with conviction and place of security and yet is vulnerable and real.

He has seen more brokenness in the world then I ever hope to and still holds on hope of a father God who wants transform and repair the brokenness we may have. It is a short book but packed with helpful steps and thoughts that I'm sure I will delve back into at some po

This book will change your life. I felt like I was relearning who God was and his heart for me.

Floyd writes a book that will change people's lives
Good book on healing the heart wounds of your past, with an emphasis on knowing God as Father. This is one of Floyd McClung's life messages, so he's qualified to write on this subject. Floyd was with YWAM for a long time - 30 years - becoming one of their main leaders. He and his family were missionaries in Afghanistan - and then the red light district of Amsterdam. He is now in South Africa I believe, after a stint in the USA.
God's love and acceptance at work in the lives of shattered and hurting people in the red light district of Amsterdam.
A fresh revelation of the depth of His unconditional love, especially for men who have had absent or abusive fathers.
Anecdotes and gentle theology introduce the fatherly love of God and the potential of healing from brokenness. For Christians, parents, anyone who is hurting, or betrayed. Moving without wallowing in pity. Excellent.

For those who seek a closer relationship with Father God. Get out your handkerchief. Also for those who have been wounded by an earthly father and need healing.
The first of my recommended reading in preparation for South Africa!
Dagmar Mueller
Most awesome classic about how God loves us. Soooooo good!
This pwerful book will completely alter your perception of God based on the experiences we have with our own fathers versus waht the Bible says about the Father God is to us. Another book that forever changed my relationship with God and deepened my spiritual growth.
