What a blessing! 18 May 2013
By chris wing - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Thanks for writing this transforming book.
I have been on a journey -for almost 50 years to
heal the wounds on my heart - from growing up
without a father.

15 years ago I started to deal with the wounds.
15 years ago I started to realize that I was " self
-medicating" - with an unhealthy passion for focusing
on overachieving .

With your book and the " Jesus Calling" devotional,
I am experiencing for the first time in my life- the
extravagant love of my heavenly father!

It feels great!
I am now trying to reverse the wounds that I have
inflicted on my 2 grown children.

I take great comfort - believing that just like your
book says- it is never too late!!!

Thanks Ed!

Dynamic Truth On The Father's Blessing 30 April 2013
By Liam Cuccia - Published on
Format: Paperback
The Father You've Always Wanted by Ed Tandy McGlasson provides the salve for the wound in everyone of us. McGlasson has a knack for speaking truth in a way that pierces you in the heart but yet it feels so good. His passion for the truth message of the Father's blessing is so genuine. I started to read one chapter and couldn't put it down. His illustrations are so easy to relate to, and his use of scripture is timely and applicable without being religious. This is a book for every generation. It's message desperately needs to be heard and shared. I strongly recommend this book to every dad, and every son and daughter who wants to receive the blessing of being named and called by your father. Healing will come as you read this book. I can see my father running toward me calling me his beloved.

Amazing Book! 25 Sept. 2013
By Alisa Russell - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This book has a powerful and healing message. I would recommend it for anyone who is struggling with wounds from their own background and how these wounds relate to their image of God. It has brought a tremendous blessing to my own life as I've recently come back to faith and am working on strengthening my relationship with my Lord and Savior.

EXCELLENT 20 May 2013
By ChristianJordan - Published on
Format: Paperback
Powerful. Ed's message has helped me so much in uncovering and then dealing with my own relationship to my father. It has changed my perspective on how I view myself and how I approach others, and it is affecting my professional life as well as my hopes for my future as a man of God. I highly recommend this book!

Becoming the Father God has Called One to Be 15 Jun. 2013
By Dr Conrade Yap - Published on
Format: Paperback
We all need a little more love, especially from fathers to their children. Intended to be both "miraculous and practical," Ed Tandy McGlasson, a former-NFL linesman turned conference speaker and author, has contributed yet another resource on fatherhood and the importance of fathers in society. Believing with passion that Malachi 4:6 will soon be a reality, he makes a passionate plea for children to maintain hope and for fathers to be available answers to the crying need in our tough society. It is interesting that McGlasson begins the book with a story of an orphanage and how they have been cared for by a spiritual father. While in a real way, there are many who may not be orphans literally, they may instead experience an absentee father. Statistics reveal that more than half of the children in America will sleep without their fathers at home, which is a shocking phenomenon, considering how strongly society places upon the importance of family. Weaved throughout the book is a subtle reminder that we too are spiritual orphans in need of our Heavenly Father.

This is a beautiful book to read as Father's Day approaches. McGlasson has woven together a book that is sensitive to the plight of children who live like orphans in this world. He has a broad understanding of the many different challenges in families, with absentee fathers, with people who have a broken childhood and many more. Gently, he guides readers toward seeking God, our Perfect Heavenly Father, who is there for us, even when we feel our earthly fathers have disappointed us. The multiperspectival use of the "father" image is especially helpful. Not only is the book for those to reminisce or to reflect upon their earthly fathers, it encourages us to seek out and receive the love of our Heavenly Father. In the process, slowly but surely, we grow in the understanding of the importance of fathers in the family and society. We grow in appreciation of God the Father. We grow in understanding the role of fathers. Like a football coach pounding out exhortations "You can do it!" McGlasson sounds out the clarion call for all to become the fathers they are called to be. Someone has said that it is easier to become a father (biologically) than to be a father (responsibly). McGlasson encourages us to go forth not only to become the fathers we are called to be, but also to honour our fathers that God has called to be our dads. Great book!
