"There are times when I feel like the title 'father' is the worst name God could have given Himself. What a stupid idea, when 'father' means rejection in my world." Excerpt from a troubled teen's letter to Doug Stringer Doug Stringer's ministry daily saw young people struggling with drugs, alcohol, abortion, prostitution, apathy, and other issues. As God gave insight the root of the problem became clear: America is devoid of fathers, both natural and spiritual. We are an orphaned nation with broken and dysfunctional families, a society of individuals in search of identity. Now, almost thirty years later, we have a "double generation" of fatherlessness, orphaned parents raising orphaned children. Even people with good fathers suffer from the widespread effects that fatherlessness has on our culture and our world. Doug illustrates the heart of God and gives the reader a clear path to the affirmation, acceptance, and approval of a father. He draws from his own struggle with fatherlessness and the struggle of others to offer insight into the power of God, including: The answer to the problem of fatherlessness in our nation The importance of spiritual fathers in the church How to be a spiritual father How to find a spiritual father God's heart for reconciliation between generations The power that is unleashed with generations work together How to overcome broken trust and learn to trust again. The church is only now awaking to the heart cry of a generation that has been abandoned and left to its own devices. Doug Stringer believes that God is ready to release a multigenerational anointing, calling forth generations of churches and nations to come back to their Abba Father.

    Honor releases blessing

    In Search of a Father's Blessing by Doug Stringer is a thought-provoking and inspirational book. The author believes "that at the core of every problem we experience as an individual, a generation, and even as a nation is disconnection from a father. It's an issue of breach, an issue of broken trust." Beginning with that premise he continues on to describe the generational differences and the need for multigenerational relationships. Relationships that mimic that of a Heavenly Father, relationships that actualize identity through affirmation, acceptance, and approval. Relationships that have the give and take of technical knowledge and skill of the youth with that of personal touch and face-to-face connection of the older generation. With scriptural references, quotes from spiritual leaders in the body of Christ and with examples from his own life and others, Stringer teaches readers about leadership. A leadership that guides, guards and governs by example, with a strong foundation built on Jesus Christ and is one characterized by servanthood and going the extra mile. The author writes with humility and urgency to help readers recognize the need to be intentional with their faith so as to bring revival to the younger generation and stand with them. The cry of all mankind is to know a father's love and Stringer reminds readers of God's desire to adopt us into His recognize that He knows us by name. In Search of a Father's Blessing is an encouraging and yet impelling book that urges believers to know Who their Daddy is! I received a copy of this book through The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.
