Time With God For Fathers - A Book Review

Fathers, get your cup of coffee ready!  A book has arrived that is aimed at you.  Time With God For Fathers by Jack Countryman is a devotional book designed to fit in with the frantic work pace fathers tend to keep.  In plenty of time for Father's Day, this book would make a perfect gift.  Filled with 90 short devotions that include a brief scripture and a description of that scripture as it applies to life as a dad.  Fathers are rushed.  Fathers are burdened with the responsibility of providing for their family.  Fathers are tired.  Fathers don't typically have enough time to sit down and read anything of substance at length.  Until now!

I had the privilege of reviewing this book through a program called BookSneeze where they provided me with a copy of the book in return for an honest review.  I found the book to be overall exciting because our culture seems to provide very little in support of fathers.  Unlike your typical devotional that provides a snippet for every day of the year, this book provides 90 short devotions that can be read in as little as 5-10 minutes depending on how long you want to meditate on what was written.  By providing only 90 devotions, this makes it possible to read through each one 4 times a year, or to concentrate only on those that speak directly to your situation.  The book also provides a reference section at the end that includes scriptures for crisis situations and scriptures directed specifically for life experiences fathers may encounter such as God's example for fathers, God's promises for fathers, God's responsibility for fathers and when and how God answers the prayers of a father.

I was thrilled to find that the book contains actual scriptures as some devotions only express little stories to uplift.  This book takes the actual scripture and explains it in a way that pertains to fathers.  The quick reference scripture guides in the back provide a chance for personal reflection and further study when there is time.  This book is a wonderful tool in the hands of any father who cares to keep his walk with God pure in how he approaches raising his children.
