Today’s interview is regarding Douglas Bond’s devotional series for young men and their fathers, Fathers and Sons. I hope to eventually do another interview with Mr. Bond, since we weren’t able to touch on his fiction. However, in this interview Mr. Bond explains why he chose to write to young men and their fathers together, as well as some pastoral insights for those who may be dealing with the loss of a child this Father’s Day.
In case you missed it over the weekend, Janie wrote a provocative piece regarding the moral state of books for young people today entitled Turn on the Light. In contrast, Mr. Bond’s books are not set Sunnybrook farm, and even in this interview he addresses real life–but he also beautifully articulates what it means to have faith and hope in Christ.
Why not take a moment to try to win one of his books? Just tell us something about your own dad in the comments EarthlyFathers, Our Heavenly Father, and A Contest! Or see Boy in the Swamp for a review of Jonathan Rogers’ The Charlatan’s Boy–the other book offered in our contest.
