Finding My Father: How the Gospel Heals the Pain of Fatherlessness [9781784986469]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

A personal story of learning to trust our heavenly Father when you feel your earthly father has let you down.

Blair Linne’s personal story of growing up without a father at home reflects the experiences of millions. She weaves her personal story with thoughtful theological reflection, inviting readers to learn from God what "father" really means and to trust him, even if they feel their earthly father has let them down.

This book will help readers to shift their eyes from what they do not have in their earthly fathers (who, whether present or absent, loving or the opposite, can never be perfect) to what they do have in their eternal Father, who will never disappoint, reject or abandon them.

Readers will see that the gospel promises not just forgiveness but also a place in God’s family, experienced in a local church, where they can enjoy the fullness of his fatherly joy, care, wisdom, provision, protection and security.

Also includes a chapter by Blair’s husband, the Christian hip-hop artist Shai, on his own story of fatherlessness and faith.

From the back cover:

“My Dad’s absence was the cloud that was always hovering in my sky, sometimes just on the horizon, sometimes blocking the sun, and at other times encompassing me like a fog. Whether your dad was there or not, and what he was like when he was there, matters. God does not expect us to pretend.”

Blair Linne grew up with her father on the end of a phone instead of with her at home. This is her moving, inspiring story of how her discovery of a Father in heaven helped and healed her, of how the gospel reshaped her identity and inspired her to build a different kind of legacy for her own family… and of how her faith held her steady when all she thought she knew about her father was shaken to the core.
