Minivan Manhood: Shepherding Your Kids Toward Greater Joy In Jesus by J. Aaron White
Minivan Manhood' is a street-level, Biblically saturated, gospel-centered guide for guys who want to lead their families well by serving their children. "Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord" (Ephesians 6:4). Although the command in this verse is fueled by the grace of the gospel, busy dads often feel overwhelmed and under equipped to obey it in their daily grinds. Busy schedules, a lack of clarity, and their own remaining sin conspire against them to derail one of their most sacred callings―fatherhood. As a follow-up to his previous book ('Man Up, Kneel Down: Shepherding Your Wife Toward Greater Joy in Jesus'), J. Aaron White has produced an accessible, concise, gospel-saturated, practical guide for fathers who want to shepherd their children in a way that makes Christ look glorious. In its brief chapters, 'Minivan Manhood' aims to encourage, equip, challenge, and inspire dads to take up the high call of fatherhood with fresh clarity and zeal.
