THE GOOD FATHER with prayers and declarations
BOOK REVIEWS (Click to Read THE REVIEWS)
“The e-book, ‘The Good Father’ brings alive [via a deep but clear expose] God’s original plan for the society through successful ‘fathering’. The word ‘Homosapien’ in Latin means ‘wise man’. The word ‘Man’, in its original Greek context, connotes one who is ‘looking up’. Therefore, for man’s wisdom to be pure and devoid of corruption, it must come from God, the maker of man. Society reflects the state of the family, hence, God commissioned man to head and give directions to the family seeing through His (God’s) eye. As man looks up on to God, he is enabled to bring up children holistically, and to create a Godly family patterned after the successful life of dominion ordained for man.
“’The Good Father’ breaks God’s charge to man [Gen 1:18] into easily understandable nuggets through Holy Spirit-inspired systematic explanations of the ’12 Attributes for Fathering Success’. I recommend this book to fathers, would-be fathers in particular, and the society at large. If fathers get it right in the ‘home front’, our societies, even our world, will be a better place.’

“Many a nation which boasts of a high Christian population faces very strong indictment. One wonders how come things are the way they are despite a strong Christian presence. The way of life is progressively getting worse without any apparent solution in sight. There hardly seems to be any difference between Christians and non-Christians. It can truly be said of these, and indeed the world at large, that the earnest expectation of this generation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God 8:19. It appears God has ‘allowed’ the state of affairs in this generation, in the hope that it will serve as the catalyst for the emergence of His sons.
“Stepping out as one of those sons of God is Sis. Mopileola Amusu. That this book is the product of a woman is a clear pointer that sonship of God is not gender-specific Gal.3:28.
“When the LORD God was to commence the establishment of human society, He started with a family unit. I strongly believe that the fixing of the nations of the world and the restoration of righteousness and order out of the present chaos will be achieved by fixing the family unit. And fixing the family unit will have to rest chiefly on the chief custodians of the family, the fathers!
“God declares through Malachi “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to their children and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.” Mal.4:5-6.
“If fathers do nothing about the present state of our world and allow things to continue as they are, the LORD may be left with no choice but to come and smite the earth with a curse.
“This book has no doubt come in the spirit and power of Elijah the prophet as ordained by the LORD Himself. I recommend it to churches, schools, Christians, and non-Christians alike. I believe you are holding in your hand, a timely book released straight from the heart of our Father in heaven, specially written for a generation such as ours.
“May the LORD equip, enrich, and empower you through this book to be one of His agents to transform our world and our generation. Amen!”
