Book Description

13 May 2010
Donald Miller's dad left when he was very young. From that point onwards, Donald felt different. Different from the other boys in his class; different from the other boys at camp. He discovered that growing up without a father to show him the ropes is hard work. Dads have crucial wisdom to impart to their sons, but without one, life seems a whole lot harder.
With honest humour and raw self-revelation, bestselling author Donald Miller talks about growing up without a father and discusses the issues that befall the ‘fatherless generation’. Miller shares his journey from self-pity and brokenness to hope and strength, providing guidance for the growing numbers of young adults floundering in an age with fewer and fewer positive domestic male role models.
This amusing, but ultimately inspiring memoir provides encouragement for both men and women who’ve grown up with absent fathers, as well as the wives, girlfriends and friends of those with a similar story.

Review

There are many books you just taste. Some you snack on. And then there are the few that you savour and devour. Donald Miller's new autobiographical narrative, Father Fiction, is a rich and memorable feast for anyone concerned about fatherlessness. It is a story that you will relish not just once but many times and it is an absolute must-read for those who want to make a loving stand against the demise of fatherhood.
(Dr Mark Stibbe, founder and leader of the Father's House Trust, and best-selling author of Orphans to Heirs, The Father You've Been Waiting For, and I)

About the Author

In 2005 Donald Miller started The Mentoring Project, an organization that helps churches start mentoring programmes and pairs mentors with boys in need. Don's work with the fatherless led the Obama administration to invite him onto the president's task force on fatherlessness and mentoring. Donald is the director of The Burnside Writers Collective, an online magazine. He is a frequent speaker, appearing at events such as the Women of Faith Conference, The Democratic National Convention, and Harvard University. He still lives in Portland, Oregon with his dog Lucy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Practical and honest advice 7 Oct 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading this book and can recommend it to anyone who grew up without a father, and those who love them. It is aimed at boys (men) but provides refreshingly honest insight into the inner world and fears of young men who grew up without a father living at home. A lot of the practical tips and truths are applicable to young women as well.
