Fathers’ Day is just a few days away and if you feel like giving your Father, Grandfather, Husband or Friend a book or two, let us give you some suggestions on what you can buy for them (or for yourself too for that matter)

For the Dad who is starting Life II

After 40, is there something more?

Author Bob Buford calls it “Life II.” It’s that stage, usually after 40, when you’ve accomplished something yet find yourself asking, “Is this all there is to life?”

In Book I, meet accomplished people who have discovered how to make the second half of their lives count. Discover practical strategies and gain valuable perspective into a life that goes beyond success to significance.

Book II talks to top executives and entrepreneurs who made crucial choices at the crossroads of their careers—and carved out a new path.

In Book III, Bob talks with the trailblazers of our times, and learns the key to a fuller, richer second season of life.


For the Dad and Husband who wants to keep the romance alive in his marriage

In this sequel to How to Mend a Broken Heart, Nelson T. Dy uses biblical principles and practical advice to show married couples, husbands especially, how to cultivate a growing and deepening relationship. His advice: begin with a romantic God.

Whether you’ve been on the road for years or just beginning your journey, reignite the intimacy and passion of your honeymoon—and make it last ‘til death do you part.



For the Father who’s not really a reader, but would like to start somewhere

The book weaves together reflection questions, real life stories, brief-but-hard-hitting Bible studies, life application ideas, and prayer starters that spur the reader towards authentic growth.

Making difficult decisions
Trusting God for your future
Guarding your soul against temptation
Sorting out priorities
Glorifying God with your work
Relating with others



For the Dad who likes reading “adrenaline-laced” books

It is a dangerous tale of times past. A love story full of deep seduction. A story of terrible longing and bold sacrifice.

Then as now, evil begins its courtship cloaked in light. And the heart embraces what it should flee. Forgetting it once had a truer lover. With a kiss, evil will ravage body, soul, and mind. Yet there remains hope, because the heart knows no bounds.

Love will prove greater than lust. Sacrifice will overcome seduction. And blood will flow.

Because the battle for the heart is always violently opposed. For those desperate to drink deep from this fountain of life, enter.

But remember, not everyone is for this story.



For the Dad who likes theological matters

In The Prodigal Son, John MacArthur takes the story back to its roots, when Jesus’ words were absolutely revolutionary. As one of America’s most beloved Bible teachers, MacArthur leads us through the minefields of interpretation and restores the simple yet profound brilliance of this passage. Giving engrossing historical background, The Prodigal Son will reveal Christ’s original message as intended for the Pharisees, the disciples, and the world today.

Gain an enlightening perspective into the prodigal son’s story and embrace God’s love anew with The Prodigal Son.





For the kid who wants to give a gift to Dad

What does it take to be a superhero? For Donny, it’s not superhuman strength or x-ray vision. It’s not the costume or the cape, either!

Let Donny introduce you to his superdad—and show you what makes him absolutely super!

Enjoy this adventure-filled read that will open your eyes to what makes your own dad every bit as super as Donny’s.
