One of the greatest problems facing the world today is 'fatherlessness.' Millions of children all over the world are growing up without the love of an affirming father. This is bad news.
The good news is that there is a spiritual antidote to this global problem. That antidote is to be found in the central revelation of Jesus of Nazareth - reveleation that God is the perfect Father.
In his book The Father You've Been Waiting For, Mark Stibbe describes this Father using the best known of Jesus' parables - a parable about the most extravagantly generous, relentlessly loving, and outrageously affectionate dad.
This parable reveals that God is not a harsh, religous slave-driver but a welcoming, intimate Dad whose arms are open wide to everyone.
Mark Stibbe encourages us all to believe that this perfect Father is the only one who can ulimately meet the deep father hunger within the human soul. And he urges is all to come running home into the forgiving embrace of the world's best Dad.
