Fathering well: the neglected missional priority

Abstract
When the church is working right, it will be a primary source of support in helping men thrive as fathers. This applied research project presents compelling evidence for several significant learnings, including: 1) The home is the primary conduit for passing on the Christian faith. 2) Literacy and exposure to great books can guard against aberrations, non-classical expressions of Christianity, and many of the dangers of growing up in a Christian home. 3) Fathers, more than any other people on the planet, are in the most strategic position to pass on to their children the possibility of friendship with God.
