SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 18, 2020 /Christian Newswire/ -- Our society is in shambles. We're faced with the hard truth that things need to change, but the looming question of "how" can seem overwhelming. We know the answer always begins with a commitment to Christ and following His will. But how do we create a culture that is willing to do this in a true and radical way? The answer: It begins with our fathers.
Editor Tyler Rowley brings us the compelling stories of twenty-three Catholics whose lives have been shaped by the unwavering faith of their fathers with the book BECAUSE OF OUR FATHERS: Twenty-three Catholics Tell How Their Fathers Led Them to Christ, which gifts readers with inspiring stories from Catholics from all walks of life. Included are essays from clergy such as Fr. Paul Scalia, and Bishop J. Strickland; media personalities, like Jesse Romero, and Patrick Madrid; and popular figures, such as Matt Birk, Abby Johnson and more!
Rowley, president of Servants of Christ for Life, begins and ends the book with a poignant introduction and conclusion that showcase the need for a revival of Catholic fatherhood in our nation. Drawing upon statistics and studies, as well as personal life experiences, BECAUSE OF OUR FATHERS provides timely and necessary inspiration to all fathers, encouraging them to live their higher calling, which is to get their families to heaven.
Rowley aptly points out that the focus on providing materially for their children is not the only, or most important, role of the father. Rather, dads everywhere need to look to the eternal and realize that they need to provide first and foremost for the spiritual needs of their families.
"Our wounded generation demonstrates the result of absentee fathers," said Steve Ray, author of Crossing the Tiber and Upon This Rock. "Tyler Rowley has given us glowing examples of the opposite — what happens when Christian fathers proudly take up the challenge of being real dads and leading their families to Christ. Heartwarming testimonies that should be read by every father."
