Founding Fathers

All men have the amazing potential to be great fathers in an increasingly fatherless society

Never before have good male role models, for children and young people, been recognized as so urgently needed.

CVM's book, Founding Fathers, celebrates the importance of the role of fathering at all stages of the journey and offers thinking and help to dads as well men with no children who could still be a key influence to a fatherless generation.

Nathan Blackaby shares characteristics of great men of faith from the Bible and personal experience whilst drawing on experts in areas of parenting, giving pointers and ideas to help men be intentional, Godly fathers, whatever their circumstances.
