Good principles to keep in mind.
Dr. MacArthur gives good counsel to focus fathers on their primary responsibilities to their family. Particularly pointed is the challenge to love your wife first to live out how the foundational unit of a family should interact with each other. The principles reviewed for developing proper relationships with ones children are simple, supported with Scripture and above all convicting. Highly recommended for anyone starting down this path, or in need of a little refocusing or reminding of what the Bible has to say regarding instructions for fathers.

Leadership at any level starts at home
John MacArthur's book Narrated by Maurice England is a guide for fathers who wish to be leaders in their home. When many fathers today are absent and spend more time on their careers than with their family this audiobook is a merciful response to the question how can I be a better leader in my home.

As a Christian John MacArthur's  guidence comes directly from the Bible. At a time when Christian values and ideas are coming under attack MacAurthur lays out the scriptural basis for Fathers being Leaders in their homes.

Political Correctness is set aside as Biblicial Truth on Loving your Wife as Jesus Christ loved the church. Setting examples for your children by living a Holy and Spiritual uplifting life, and teaching your children biblical truth while giving them room to grow.

The second half of this audiobook talks about what it means to be a Biblicly based Father Figure. Using examples from both the New and Old Testement MacAuthur describes a self sacrificing life where forgiveness and love override the societal  norms of shunning and disapproval seen in today's culture. 

Unconditional Love is presented as an alternative to the "I told you so" correction so many fathers hand out today as instruction that actually destroys a child.

Maurice England's narration of this audiobook is clear and easy to understand. His inflection and emphasis is just the right amount to give the listener the understanding from the authors written word.

Being a Dad who Leads, is an Excelent book on Leadership at any level but to its audience especially. This book is published by Harvest House and in audiobook format by ChristianAudio.com

Solid Home Leadership Guidance
Being a Dad Who Leads by John MacArthur is a helpful book in applying Biblical wisdom to everyday parenting. He delves deep into popular passages of scripture that address being a great father and aims to provide counsel that will help with the difficult but rewarding position of being a father and head of the household.

The chapter on not provoking your child to wrath was an interesting and insightful chapter as fathers can sometimes make life harder for themselves by causing their children to be angry and then find it hard to teach them or expect them to follow their instructions.

Personally I am not a parent yet, so my experience is very limited in applying this information but I think it will come in handy in the future. Although there is not a lot new in this book it does explore scripture thoroughly and provide solid advice on being a father.

The narrator was good as usual with his strong fatherly tone being a great addition to the words of wisdom about leading children in an effective manner.

This book would be good for men who are really looking to lead their families in a Godly way and make use of the great examples and guidance in the Bible.
