Free Book: My Friend, My Hero, My Dad

My Friend, My Hero, My Dad

Some of you may know that I wrote a book entitled Game Day for the Glory of God, which is set to be published by Crossway Books in September, 2008. What you may not know is that I recently wrote a second book entitled My Friend, My Hero, My Dad: The Extraordinary Influence of an Ordinary Man. As you might guess, this book is about my dad.

No one has had a greater spiritual influence on my life than my dad, and there’s no one I want to be more like. Like the title says, he’s my friend and my hero. This book details the specific ways my dad influenced me to follow Christ, and is intended to be an encouragement for mom’s, dad’s, husbands, and wives. My hope is that this book encourages you as you seek to faithfully raise your children in the fear of the Lord.

I should point out that my dad didn’t really want me to write this book. That’s because he’s humble. But I believe that I have an extraordinary dad, and that his example is compelling. My goal in writing this book was to give people a snapshot of that compelling example.

I would like to make this book available to as many people as possible. To do that I’m going to:

  • Give the book away in e-book format for free. Please feel free to pass the e-book along to as many people as you would like.
  • For those of you who hate reading e-books, a paperback version can be purchased on for $10.
  • For those of you who go to my church, we’ll be making it available very shortly.
