I saw this one, and I was reminded of a book I read several years ago called “7 Men Who Rule the World from the Grave”, and I thought this sounded like a similar kind of book, so I requested it. I got the book in the mail and then read the sub-title: Discovering Christianity’s Most Dangerous Ideas. Very Intriguing!

With all of the ‘adjustments’ to the economy in both the US and Canada, and also with the subtle to aggressive attacks on the church a LOT of ministries are shifting and changing and even failing. Gary McIntosh has a book of ways that those in ministry can perform a health check on their ministry, and if they find areas where there is a deficiency, they can evaluate them, and have some strategies as to how to move forward.

It is encouraging to see so many books coming out about this topic, or maybe as a young father of three, I just find them all. “Father Hunger” by Douglas Wilson is a fresh look at this topic, using modern research to show how the Bible was right about how the family unit should work from the beginning.
The most disturbing section, I think, is the number of men in churches being on a decline, and in MANY cases, just falling off the chart. This is such a disturbing trend, and one that real men would change if they truly, TRULY understood accountability for their actions, and the role they have been given as fathers.
This is a great book on the topic, and one that I highly recommend to fathers of all ages that want what God wants for their house. Step up men, and be the father you are called to be.
This book was provided to me by Booksneeze for my review. I am free to give an honest opinion in this review.
