Father Hunger : Douglas Wilson

Posted by Remy on May 3, 2012

With a deft theological hand Douglas Wilson weaves fatherhood and atheism into a digressive encomium of love in a variety of roles, God to man, husband to wife, father to child. The breadth of topics covered by Wilson is impressive, everything from abortion to capitalism, to gender roles; all written in the bombastic style that wins him both friends and enemies. Rigorously pastoral, insightful and full of talking points, I found myself surprised and delighted and even at times confused and squinty-eyed, which are things I most find valuable in a book like this.

I see little doubt that this is one of the great challenges of the future and Father Hunger is an excellent starting point in moving forward.
