But how can you succeed in a society that attacks the role of fatherhood and godly family values? Are you sometimes tempted to give in or give up? The rewards of being a dad who leads are well worth making the effort to stand firm. The Bible offers clear guidance for dads on how to parent effectively. Join pastor-teacher John MacArthur as he looks at...

  • The keys to building healthy family unity
  • Essential character qualities to teach every child
  • How to lovingly discipline children and nurture obedience
  • Traps to avoid in the course of parenting

Commit yourself to being a dad who leads, and God will enable you every step of the way. There's no surer path to experiencing a lifetime of family blessings!

Leadership of Any Kind Starts At Home

John MacArthur's book Narrated by Maurice England is a guide for fathers who wish to be leaders in their home. When many fathers today are absent and spend more time on their careers than with their family this audiobook is a merciful response to the question how can I be a better leader in my home.

As a Christian John MacArthur's  guidence comes directly from the Bible. At a time when Christian values and ideas are coming under attack MacAurthur lays out the scriptural basis for Fathers being Leaders in their homes.

Political Correctness is set aside as Biblicial Truth on Loving your Wife as Jesus Christ loved the church. Setting examples for your children by living a Holy and Spiritual uplifting life, and teaching your children biblical truth while giving them room to grow.

The second half of this audiobook talks about what it means to be a Biblicly based Father Figure. Using examples from both the New and Old Testement MacAuthur describes a self sacrificing life where forgiveness and love override the societal  norms of shunning and disapproval seen in today's culture. 

Unconditional Love is presented as an alternative to the "I told you so" correction so many fathers hand out today as instruction that actually destroys a child.

Maurice England's narration of this audiobook is clear and easy to understand. His inflection and emphasis is just the right amount to give the listener the understanding from the authors written word.

Being a Dad who Leads, is an Excelent book on Leadership at any level but to its audience especially.

It's all just scripture. Just read your bible!!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

People who are very Christian and like reading scripture.

What do you think your next listen will be?

A book about actually being a Dad.

Would you be willing to try another one of Maurice England’s performances?

He was a good reader

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

disappointment

Any additional comments?

I would like a credit refunded to me.

The "Christian audio" on the left side of the book should be in a bolder font so I know to avoid it next time. I feel cheated because I am not Christian and the whole book is all quoting scripture. If I wanted that I would read the Bible.
