Family Shepherds: Calling and Equipping Men to Lead Their Homes is a book written by Voddie Baucham Jr. I have personally heard him speak and he is excellent! Mr. Baucham has written two other books: What He Must be...If He Wants to Marry My Daughter and Family Driven Faith. I knew he was an excellent teacher, so I knew this book would be great.
Like the movie that came out recently, (Courageous) this book encourages men to step up and "be a man". They tell men how to lead their homes and how important it is to do so. The majority of the kids in jail are in there because they did not have a positive father figure in their life to lead them and be their example. Many daughters turn to buys their age to find the love that they are missing by not having a father. This can lead to teenage pregnancy and abortions. Without a father, girls do not have the love coming from a dad who protects and treasures them as his "sweet little girl". Without a father, guys growing up do not have as close of a positive example of how to treat ladies and how to grow towards God and lead households. Voddie Baucham Jr. encourages men to lead their families and teach them about God. He encourages them to be a better example of all men should be. This was a very good book by a very good teacher that would help keep families together if men stepped up and lead their families.
Thank you to Net Galley for letting me review this book.
