Book "Time with God for Fathers" by Jack Countryman

About the Book: Time with God for Fathers is filled with ninety devotions that encourage fathers to spend time on their relationship with the Lord in prayer, thanksgiving, and praise. Devotions are topical and include: forgiveness, wisdom, comfort, guidance, and strength. A Quick Scripture Reference Guide is included to help fathers in their day-to-day walk with God and fatherhood. Subjects consist of "Father's Prayers", "God's Promises for Fathers", "God's Blessings for Fathers", "Responsibilities for Fathers", and "God's Dynamic Examples of Fathers".

About the Author: Jack Countryman is the founder of J Countryman, a division of Thomas Nelson Publishers, and bestselling author. He created God’s Promises® line with over 9 million copies sold to date. He’s author of "If My People", "I Will Love You Forever", and "God’s Promises for the Graduate". Jack and his beloved wife Marsha, who shares this journey with him, have 2 grown sons, Bret and Jason.

My Review: This is a wonderful book, with a very carefull selected finishing that makes it a great gift to any Christian father. Its format is like a devotional, having several topics, a bible verse related to the topic in question and a personal input from the author on that subject, usually right on target.
Besides that, it provides at the end of the book a kind of reference guide for different situations, pointing to some bible verses related to that particular situation. Some topics are "Crisis Scripture Guide", "God's Dynamic Example of Fathers", "Responsabilities of Fatherhood to...", "God's Blessing for Fathers with...", "God's Promises for Fathers", and "God Listens to a Father's Prayer when...". Very useful tool for many circunstances.
I would recommend this book to any new father, as well as old fathers, because there is always time to adjustments in our life when we are trying to guide ourselves based on the Word of God.

This book was written by Jack Countryman and it was published by Thomas Nelson in 2011 and they were kind enough to send me a copy for reviewing through their Thomas Nelson Book Review Bloggers Program.
