This collection of devotions from father to son draws upon the rich experiences of men who hunt, fish, love the outdoors, and all kinds of sports: it illustrates spiritual lessons for growing into the kind of men who follow Christ with zeal and who love their families with devotion. Author Gary Miller draws upon his lifelong passion, for sports, and the outdoors, and his experience as a pastor, columnist, and speaker, to build fifty-two devotions that bring together Bible passages, these outdoor passions and Christian wisdom. The results are devotions that fathers can share with their sons as they deepen their faith, grow to manhood, and develop their enthusiasm for all things outdoors. Devotions begin with passages from the Scriptures and then speak in the voice of a father passing on Christian insight to his son by pointing out the spiritual truths found in sports and creation. Finally, each devotion concludes with a prayer from the father, to God, concerning his son. If you are a father who cares about raising your son to share your values- faith in Christ, devotion to family, and love of sports and the outdoors- then these devotions can give you the tools you need to begin and continue the conversation with your son. By learning together how to appreciate God's gifts, you both will grow closer to Christ and to one another.
