      Book Description
      Fatherhood in the twenty-first century is not for the faint-hearted, but it
      isn’t rocket science and there aren’t any tricks. A new book by a seasoned
      father shows that any man with common sense, an unwavering focus on his goal, and
      the willingness to struggle can raise a great family. To Be a Father
      challenges men to make the demanding commitments that will transform their family
      lives and themselves.
      Challenging men to a life of service to their families, Stephen Gabriel
      proposes a set of commitments for those who are serious about their vocation to be
      a father. These promises—to one’s wife, to one’s children, and to oneself—
      are demanding, and many of them require a lifetime of struggle. The man who
      makes these promises and tries to keep them, however, will improve his
      relationship with his family and with God.
      In an age when manhood itself is in question and countless men have never
      known a father of their own, reflection on what it takes to be a father is
      indispensable. To Be a Father is the compass a man needs to navigate the tricky
      waters of fatherhood, helping him grow in the spirit of service and leadership
      grounded in virtue.
