Book Review by Linda Fegins
I  just finished watching the DVD, He Motions, the book written by preacher, author, T.V. host and motivational speaker, Bishop T.D. Jakes who has emerged as one of the pre-eminent spiritual leaders of our day. The DVD addressed the issues confronting men under social, emotional, spiritual and psychological siege. He noted that many combat the dismal affects of fathers being absent from the lives of their families (whether physically or emotionally . Thus, men who have no relationship with their father or responsible mentors struggle with many manhood issues which influence how they relate to women, family, their children and society.
That is why the reading of Terrence Wilson’s “In Search of A Father” timely message of hope and healing from a man growing up without the presence of his father in the home or significantly in  his life as a result of divorce, is a great book to read for fathers, sons, husbands, church leaders and the women who suffer the ill-effects of a man’s fatherless state and actions. The book examines the complicated and challenging task of manhood when one lacks a sound relationship with his father. However, the book does not leave the reader on a sour downcast note, but empowers and enlightens men. It inspires them and shows them how to trust God as their father. It is encouraging and inspiring that Terrence found the courage and strength   to receive wisdom and guidance about fathering from God the Father and that he has strived to  become the kind of man who will make a great father and husband to his present family. He serves as an encouragement for others that they can do the same.
The book provides basic real life answers on how to overcome the pain of rejection and to effectively deal with the issue to live a productive life. Significantly, as one of the endorsers of the book stated  it “empowers the reader to achieve spiritual freedom through developing a strong relationship with God as their heavenly Father”.  “In Search of A Father” would be a good tool for the church and male organizations to use in bible study or for workshops geared for men.
