Review by Janet Carter
The Dad's Bible: The Father's Plan with notes by Dr. Robert Wolgemuth is a bible designated specifically for fathers. If you are an expectant father or you've been a dad for many years, this Bible offers many lessons, instructions and encouragement to help you become a more godly man and role model for your children and/or grandchildren. The Dad's Bible is published in the New Century Version, meaning it is very easy-to-read and makes comprehension more viable.
I had the pleasure of previously reviewing the Mom's Bible: God's Wisdom for Mothers with notes by Robbie Wolgemuth. And, I was equally excited to be able to review the Dad's Bible for Book Sneeze along with my husband.He did not own a NCV Bible and appreciated the thought and hard work that went into creating this translation. He agrees that it is very easy-to-read. We both appreciate the many features: Insights, Godly Character,Walking in Authority, Dads in the Bible, Question and Answer Resource, Passing It On and the Topical Index.
Similar to the Mom's Bible, you will find the Question and Answer Resource. Each answer will have a scriptural based answer for the tough questions that children sometimes ask. I am sure you will find answers to questions you were not familiar with as well. Here are a few questions that your child may ask: "What is an idol?", "How big is God?", "Why do I sometimes feel that God is not there?" and many others. I like the accountability feature called Passing It On because it challenges dads to live their lives in faith and to allow their children to see them living for God. The Dads in the Bible profiles many fathers in both the Old and New Testament. I like how the Topical Index lists the Dads in the Bible with phrases like : Adam, the Wimpy Father and Mordecai, the Adoptive Father.
I recommend the Dad's Bible for new believers in Christ, for new and expectant fathers, and men of all ages and stages that desire to be godly role models for their families.
Note: You can also purchase a bible study guide for both the Dad's Bible and the Mom's Bible.
I happily received a copy of the Dad's Bible: The Father's Plan for free to review for Book Sneeze.(Thomas Nelson)
