Dad Time by Max Lucado; a giveaway and a review

photo With his relaxed story-telling style, San Antonio pastor Max Lucado has consistently given his millions of readers a glimpse into the soul of a man living a Christ-centered life. With his latest, Dad Time, Lucado does not disappoint. In Dad Time, Max Lucado gives us glimpses into the interior of a loving father.

Here at Dads Roundtable, we have, courtesy of Lucado’s publisher, three copies to give away in a raffle. You can see the raffle link at the bottom of this review.

Fatherhood, especially with small children, demands more of one’s time than any of us ever expected. Lucado has written Dad Time in vignettes so that the pressed-for-time father can grab sixty seconds of inspiration between changes of the nine month old’s diapers and lunchtime for the toddler. He hits all the buttons – the joy and the grief, the fear and the faith, the befuddlement and the certainty – that come with fatherhood.

Perhaps you have doubts about reading a work deeply rooted in a man’s Christian faith. Don’t be. As a Jew, I saw Max Lucado’s bigger picture. While his faith informs his parenting, his fatherhood comes from a place all Dads share.  As fathers, we have the awesome privilege and responsibility for our children. Regardless of faith, as fathers, we all share in life’s greatest challenge and reward. Should you share Lucado’s faith, rest assured, you will find plenty to ponder. His book glows with spirit as he finds passages that neatly tie into his text.

With Dad Time, Max Lucado reminds us that in the midst of our busy lives, we all deserve a few moments to take plenty of mental photos.

Here at Dads Roundtable, we have three copies of Dad Time that we will give away, just in time for Father’s Day, to three lucky people.
