Faith 'n' Fiction Saturday: Books for Dad

Dove
What's Faith 'n' Fiction Saturday? I'm so glad you asked! Read this post and learn all about how to participate in this weekly meme.

Today's Topic
Well since tomorrow is Father's Day and it's likely that a few of you may still need to purchase a Father's Day gift why not books?

Do you have a book you'd recommend as a Father's Day gift? I'm particularly interested in any Christian fiction books you'd recommend for dads, since I'm always reading that men read less fiction than women!

My Answer
I think some good old non-fiction by Ravi Zacharias or Philip Yancey or the classic C.S. Lewis is always a good bet. For fiction you might try Ted Dekker. I really actually need help on this, so I'm eager to hear your thoughts!

A friend of mine discovered a book called "Man in the Mirror", and bought cases of it and gave it out to every guy he knew. My husband has a copy, although he hasn't read it (he is a non-reader!). I don't think it is fiction, but very Christian.

Interesting question Amy. It definitely made me think this Saturday morning :)

Okay, this is totally non-fiction but for fathers of unmarried daughters I unreservedly recommend Voddie Baucham's What He Must Be. For fiction, hmmm...I just read Enclave by Karen Hancock and I think Dads into sci-fi would really enjoy it!

I know that it is a little late, but my boys got my husband 2 of Preston and Childs books (he is only reading this series right now).

My husband really enjoys the following authors..James Rollins, Clive Cussler, Robert Ludlom, Stephen Hunter and Preston and Childs
