KISSIMMEE, Fla., Nov. 10, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- Trinity Grace Press announces the release in paperback and as an ebook for the Amazon Kindle, the Apple iBookstore, and the Barnes & Noble Nook, of "Failing at Fatherhood: a book for the imperfect father" by Jack Barr of King, North Carolina.
Starting with an article on CNN, author Jack Barr tells his deeply personal story as a new father who learns his child has Down syndrome. The resulting fear and anxiety quickly overwhelms him to the point where he takes drastic actions that are vividly recounted in "Failing at Fatherhood." His calling to be a missionary in Thailand serves as the backdrop to this story of failure—but also one of redemption because the glowing embers of his faith compel him to change his path and become the father that he is meant to be.
Dr. Woodrow Kroll, former president of Back to the Bible International had this to say:
"Raw. Emotional. Honest. That's Jack Barr, wearing his emotions on his sleeve. If you've ever been traumatized by the birth of an imperfect baby, if you've ever found yourself in the pit of despair questioning God and wondering how you will cope, the story of Jack, his wife Jana, and their precious little Marley will not only touch your heart, it will wrench it. But there is hope in their story—the hope that only a good God can bring. ...prepare to be changed."
John McClure, senior editor of Trinity Grace Press, states, "When I first read about Jack's story on CNN, it really grabbed me. It's a story of redemption through God's grace. For we have all failed but Jack is just more honest about it than most of us. The key is not giving up and to accept God's mercy and to go forward with our mission in life. Jack's book helps us all see that and understand it better."
Failing at Fatherhood (ISBN: 978-1-940145-30-3, Trade Paper, 164 pages, $13.99, Non-Fiction/Christian Life/Family) is distributed by STL and is available wherever fine books are sold.
