Book Review: Father Fiction by Donald Miller

I just finished reading Father Fiction by Donald Miller and it was a great book.  Like his other books, this book is a memoir of Donald Miller and he shares stories from his life and growing up without a father.
Using stories from his own life, Miller takes about a large problem in our country, kids, specifically boys, growing up without father's.  He addresses the need for men to come along side young men and show them the path to manhood. 
Miller also shares stories about how mentors have come into his life and helped him to learn how to better become a man.  Through this book, it seems that Don is address wounds in his heart left by his dad and encouraging the readers to address their own wounds as well as get involved with mentoring the kids around you. 
Recently becoming a dad myself, this book was a great encouragement to the role a dad plays in his children's lives. 
All in all, this is a great book and I would highly recommend it.  Donald Miller is a great storyteller and that shines through in this book, as his other books I have read.
