The Bible Looks for Fathers; Annemarie Ohler
Condition: Very good, edges bumped.
The word "father" appears in the Bible more than twelve hundred times, but determining what the Bible has to say about it is a complex task. Because modern society possesses no distinctive concept of fatherhood, there is no consistent image of fathers in the Bible, and biblical conceptions about fatherhood such as elements of patriarchalism still exist. In The Bible Looks at Fathers Annemarie Ohler examines biblical texts to determine what importance fathers had in earlier times and to draw attention to questions that will continue to confront us as long as fatherhood has meaning in our lives.
