"There are times when I feel like the title 'father' is the worst name God could have given Himself. What a stupid idea, when 'father' means rejection in my world." Excerpt from a troubled teen's letter to Doug Stringer Doug Stringer's ministry daily saw young people struggling with drugs, alcohol, abortion, prostitution, apathy, and other issues. As God gave insight the root of the problem became clear: America is devoid of fathers, both natural and spiritual. We are an orphaned nation with broken and dysfunctional families, a society of individuals in search of identity. Now, almost thirty years later, we have a "double generation" of fatherlessness, orphaned parents raising orphaned children. Even people with good fathers suffer from the widespread effects that fatherlessness has on our culture and our world. Doug illustrates the heart of God and gives the reader a clear path to the affirmation, acceptance, and approval of a father. He draws from his own struggle with fatherlessness and the struggle of others to offer insight into the power of God, including: The answer to the problem of fatherlessness in our nation The importance of spiritual fathers in the church How to be a spiritual father How to find a spiritual father God's heart for reconciliation between generations The power that is unleashed with generations work together How to overcome broken trust and learn to trust again. The church is only now awaking to the heart cry of a generation that has been abandoned and left to its own devices. Doug Stringer believes that God is ready to release a multigenerational anointing, calling forth generations of churches and nations to come back to their Abba Father.
