Like Father Like Son (Review)
This review is for the book "Like Father Like Son" by Pete Alwinson. The premise of this book is that knowing God as your father and realizing that type of love will change you as a man, and as a father. (Yes, this book is written for men, but there are some great lessons in here that we can all use!)
The book goes through certain qualities of God and how men can learn these qualities by reading scripture. Alwinson has testimonies throughout the book of men who have their vision of God skewed due to their lack of relationship with their own father (or very poor relationship). Alwinson claims that men can get past their relationship with their earthly father, and still be a great example for their children, or other boys in their lives. Alwinson shares his own story as this testimony.
He covers many qualities of God, such as: welcoming, identity-building, guiding, and grace-giving, among others. He goes through these scripturally, and then adds discussion questions to the end of each chapter to encourage deeper thinking.
I enjoyed this book. It held a lot of good material. Some of it was not really new to me, but it still needs to be heard.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
