Glad to be Dad: A Call to FatherhoodOne of the greatest forces creating our human world is, of course, parenting, which has the power to nurture or wound our very humanity. But raising children isn’t easy, and men in particular are facing challenges as they become more fully-committed to domestic life. Glad to Be Dad is about the actual lives of fathers, mothers, and families today, exploring the demands and great rewards of finding your deeper, truer self as a father, a husband, and a man.

But, like family life itself, the book is also full of humor and wonderful surprises, taking a realistic, but warm-hearted view of this most crucial of our life-roles. And, it’s for wives as well as husbands! Glad to Be Dad: A Call to Fatherhood has great design, has a strong use of typography and iconography, and the use of charts and tables complement the information.
