A Father, a Hero
Honor Dad...He Deserves It!
Make today Father's Day! Whether given on a special day or just "because," "A Father, A Hero" will show your dad how much he means to you and your family. In four sections of stories--each honoring him as a protector, a provider, a leader, and a spiritual role model--this beautiful book with reminiscent images by G. Harvey is all it takes to show Dad his incomparable value. The uplifting, true tales and moving pictures combine to serve as a reminder that strong family ties are a blessing from the Lord.
In a World in Need of Male Role Models,
Honor the Heroes Who Are
Confidently, humbly, faithfully. A father often serves behind the scenes. But younger generations are watching, and his example sets the course for a bright future. His role is irreplaceable, his leadership commendable. He's a commonplace hero deserving nothing short of noble recognition.
Dr. James Dobson and his good friend, acclaimed artist G. Harvey, invite you to experience the rich blessing of fathers and families through the inspirational stories and images that make up "A Father, A Hero." The artist's unique touch and striking images usher in an air of gratitude as you ponder the gift of male role models everywhere. The stories, a collection of Dr. Dobson's favorites, will inspire you as they invoke your own special memories.
Honor your father. Cherish your family. And shower accolades upon the one who has led boldly, served faithfully, and loved sincerely.
