Review: Calling God Father

Calling God “Father” addresses significant omissions and distortions in the current critique of biblical patriarchy and shows how the Bible fostered and might continue to support a high culture of fathering. According to author John Miller, “Due to the marginality of males in the reproductive process, fathering is a cultural acquisition to an extent that mothering is not. When a culture ceases to support a father's involvement with his own children through its teaching, laws, mores, symbols, models and rituals, powerful natural forces take over in favor of the mother-alone family.”
