Father Cry

Father Cry by Billy Wilson. I love the title of the book and the general call for all believers to understand the importance of being spiritual fathers (and mothers) as well as having God meet our greatest needs as we cry out to Him. I appreciate his heart to connect the generations. So often, we miss the great work God wants to do in and through the power of older and younger unity.

In this book, Wilson shares much of his own life’s journey. He knows the profound impact fathers, both spiritual and physical, have on children. The impact can be powerfully good and powerfully negative. He connects his stories with the need for fathering for the upcoming generations. He uses examples from scripture to highlight spiritual fathering at its best and worst.

While I don’t come from a “spirit-empowered” background, his challenge to be a spiritual parent (or receive spiritual parenting) has broad application. I had hoped there would have been more “how-to” but am glad for the foundational message of the need.

The last two chapters were moving for me. While I am in the midst of a difficult season in life, I am encouraged that my pain can be used for God. Equally significant, the reminder of God’s passionate Father-love speaks a message I need fed into my soul again and again. I am thankful for the opportunity to read this book and the encouragement it was to me.

Note: I was given a free copy of this book to review from Chosen Publishers. My opinion is my own. Unlike a biased view of my kids (the best in the world), the review is my honest thoughts and reflections.
