An in-depth focus on the spiritual and psychological dimensions of fatherhood, The Father Quest goes beyond simple prescriptions and techniques to explain the importance of fatherhood to our present day culture. The "Father" is one of the two great pillars of society that shape and support human life from the beginning. Readers who are struggling to be fathers, as well those who are struggling with their own fathers, will find healing ingredients to awaken an inner source of renewal and inspiration. One of many subjects explored is the critical importance of passion and love as key ingredients of the "spirit of fatherhood."
--- from the publisher
"Give this book to fathers you know. It leads us from the world made and 'given,' the world of false fatherhood, to the world 'created' as the true father's challenge for a passion for life."
