The rewards of being a dad who leads are well worth making the effort to stand firm. The Bible offers clear guidance for dads on how to parent effectively


4) What The Bible Says About Parenting Biblical Principle For Raising Godly Children



More than ever, Christians need to know what the Bible actually teaches about parenting, and put it into practice.

In a world of divorce, casual sex, and homosexual unions, “family”?once the bedrock of our culture?is becoming a matter of uncertainty and argument. From some quarters, traditional roles for men and women are ridiculed. And standing firm in a healthy, well-functioning family is harder than ever.

So how can you have a happy home? How can you pass on strong morals to your children in a world going awry? By following God’s divine plan for family life,” writes Bible teacher, pastor, father, and grandfather John MacArthur in this book.


6) The Masculine Mandate: God’s Calling to Men


List Price: $18.00

You Save: $5.71
Price Disclaimer


There is a crying need in the church today for men to be men. But competing visions for what a man is to be some growing out of popular culture and others arising from flawed teaching in the church are exacerbating the problem.

Rev. Richard Phillips believes it is possible to cut through all of this confusion by consulting the Bible. Only in the pages of Scripture, he asserts, can men find a clear explanation of their God-given roles as leaders, husbands, fathers, and churchmen. Beginning in Genesis, Phillips shows that God commissioned Adam to work and tend the Garden of Eden.

Men and Marriage is a critical commentary that asks the burning question, How can society survive the pervasive disintegration of the family?

A profound crisis faces modern social order as traditional family relationships become almost unrecognizable.


10) Father Hunger: Why God Calls Men to Love and Lead Their Families



Father Hunger is a thoughtful and timely excursion into our culture of fatherlessness, what Wilson calls “the central malady of our time.”

Central because it is the cause of so many of the ills we face – everything from atheism and crime to joyless feminism and paternalistic government expansion – but most important because of the effect it has on families, children, wives, and husbands. Bottom line: when fathers are checked out, left out, or ruled out, it hurts literally everyone.


11) The Shepherd Leader at Home: Knowing, Leading, Protecting, and Providing for Your Family


Husbands and dads play a crucial role in the health and survival of the family. That’s why leadership expert Tim Witmer has written this book—to strengthen our efforts to lead well.

He applies a biblical framework to the role of leadership in the home, showing how effective shepherding involves “knowing, leading, protecting, and providing for your family”; all the while communicating solid principles with a down-to-earth, relatable tone.


12) The Meaning of Marriage: Facing the Complexities of Commitment with the Wisdom of God



Based on the acclaimed sermon series by New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller, this book shows everyone—Christians, skeptics, singles, longtime married couples, and those about to be engaged—the vision of what marriage should be according to the Bible.


13) What Every Man Wishes His Father Had Told Him
