Book Synopsis as provided by the publisher:

What Important Role Does a Dad Play in His Son's Life?

He may be a little boy asking you to play catch today. But what about the years to come? Will you continue to be an important influence, helping him realize the potential God has given him?

As a man, you know a lot of what your son will face, and no one is in a better position to prepare him for life. Michael O'Donnell's insights offer simple but powerful techniques to help you start your son on the road to maturity. You can build the father-son bond you want and lead him into a healthy, well-balanced manhood.


If you are looking for an easy-to-read, challenging yet encouraging book on being the best dad you can be, then look no farther than this wonderful book. What a Son Needs from His Dad is not only filled with Biblical wisdom and information based on the latest research, but contains extremely practical information. I absolutely loved the "Putting it to work" or "For Thought and Discussion" sections at the back of each chapter, which provide clear strategies to use with your own son or grandson or nephew. By the time I'd put down the book I'd been given some great information on how to talk to my son about sex or pornography, how to instill strong values and Biblical habits, and even how to teach my son to worship God. I plan on picking up this book for guidance many times over, as the years pass by and my son grows older.

I fully recommend this book and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
