The Father Quest: Rediscovering an Elemental Force
By Bud Harris

"Give this book to fathers you know. It leads us from the world made and 'given,' the world of false fatherhood, to the world 'created' as the true father's challenge for a passion for life." --Dirk Evers, Ph.D., Training Analyst, C.G. Jung Institute, Zurich

Product Description
A New Understanding of Fatherhood that Surprises, Heals and Inspires.
Fatherhood itself is a life of its own. It carries the great responsibility of raising children with the right values, giving them the best education and implementing a code of morality into their lives. In addition, the father himself must be dedicated to his moral duties for the rest of his life. These are some of the themes that readers will discover in this Fisher King Press publication.

This Father Quest brings to readers an in-depth focus on what being a father is all about. It emphasizes fatherhood in its deepest personal and spiritual meanings and explores the psychological dimensions of fatherhood. The Father Quest goes beyond simple prescriptions and techniques to explain the importance of fatherhood s deeper personal meanings, as well as to culture. Interestingly, it describes the father as being one of the two great pillars of society that shape and support human life from the beginning.

The Father Quest explores the critical importance of passion and love as key ingredients of the "spirit of fatherhood." Thanks to its richly-layered content, readers who are struggling to be fathers, as well those who are struggling with their own fathers, will find The Father Quest to be great source of inspiration.
