How to be a Catholic dad

For my latest review, I chose a book that I could read and discuss with my husband. We both agree that Man to Man - Dad to Dad: Catholic Faith and Fatherhood is a much needed resource in the arena of Catholic parenting. The shelves are full of mom-oriented books which focus on keeping kids Catholic but this is a great view from the male perspective...actually, many male perspectives, since

The structure of a different author for each chapter gives the book many different perspectives to entice different types of readers. Some of the chapters focus mainly on scripture in relation to parenting and others are more real-world. Whatever your style, you will find some great advice in these pages.

Each chapter provides encouragement and easily digested wisdom. The chapter by Patrick Madrid, "You Can Keep Your Kids Catholic," is full of real-world ideas for fathers trying to keep their children in the faith like praying the family rosary and providing each child with their own Bible with an inscription from their parents.

The book is a quick read but full of enough good information to meet the needs of both first-time and more experienced fathers. It would make a great book for any father who is searching for inspiration to raise and keep their children in the Catholic faith.

This review was written as part of the Catholic book reviewer program from The Catholic Company. Visit The Catholic Company to find more information on Man to Man - Dad to Dad: Catholic Faith and Fatherhood.
