Man to Man, Dad to Dad: Catholic Faith and Fatherhood

Hello from the grownups department!

I was delighted to receive this invitation from the Pauline Kids team to contribute a blog post about one of the new releases here at Pauline Books & Media. 

Back at the beginning of 2011, the Pauline Adult team started to work with Brian Caulfield, editor of the website FathersforGood.org, sponsored by the Knights of Columbus. We wanted a book that would speak to married Catholic men about their vocation to be husbands and fathers in this day and age. We brainstormed together and came up with a plan for the book: Man to Man, Dad to Dad: Catholic Faith and Fatherhood.

Man to Man, Dad to Dad’s thirteen chapters plus Introduction and Foreword are written by a dream–team of Catholic men. Each chapter takes up one topic, and they range from work-life balance, sports, disciplining children, Catholic identity, St. Joseph, break-down in the marital relationship, fatherhood… The list goes on.

What does this have to do with being a teacher or a catechist? Well, as Cardinal Dolan says in his Foreword:

"There is no doubt that this kind of book is urgently needed in our nation and in our Church. The absence of fathers from the lives of children has already reached crisis proportions and has led to all kinds of personal and social problems. Our culture and media seem to have lost any sense of the impact that a father can have on the lives of his children and routinely deride or ridicule “traditional” fathers.

"The antidote to that cultural decline can be found in the essays in this book. They address compelling, urgent needs in the lives of fathers and children…I heartily encourage all fathers—and mothers too—to explore the book’s gifts and be enriched in their vocations.”
