What God Wants Every Dad to Know

The Most Important Principles You Can Teach Your Child

In What God Wants Every Dad to Know, Pastor James Merritt encourages dads to pass along to their children God’s timeless wisdom found in Proverbs. Through his personable and engaging style, he reveals important life principles on such key topics as

  • finances
  • use of the tongue
  • sexuality
  • work ethic
  • friendships

No book ever written has been a better or more practical guide than Proverbs for helping fathers guide their children toward right choices and away from wrong ones. The advice of wise King Solomon remains invaluable for today’s dads struggling with the pressures of home and career responsibilities, travel, broken families, and other realities of modern life.

Merritt makes liberal use of anecdotes and stories from his own experience as the father of three children as he urges dads to take seriously their important role as leaders in their homes and their responsibility to teach godly wisdom to their children.

A Word from the Author

“I don’t believe there is a more important position in life whether it be the President of the United States or the Queen of England than to be a parent. God has given us in the Book of Proverbs the wisdom that every parent needs to pass down to their child. If we only do one thing as parents it should be to teach our children to always be able to answer the question, ‘What is the wisest thing to do?’ This book will help you give your child the answer to that question.”
James Merritt, author of What God Wants Every Dad to Know

“Every dad wants to be great, but few know how to do it. James Merritt clearly outlines some non-negotiable and biblical priorities that give clear direction to any dad on where and how to start being powerfully influential with his kids. But most of all, James is a devoted dad who loves his sons.”
Bryant Wright, senior pastor, Johnson Ferry Baptist Church, Marietta, GA

What God Wants Every Dad to Know challenges fathers with life-changing truth straight from God's Word that can transform our relationships with our kids. As a dad, I was personally stretched and encouraged by Dr. Merritt's teaching.”
