Father’s Day is just around the corner, and I suspect that good ol’ Dad has his fill of neckties and BBQ tools. Let me suggest a gift for your Dad’s soul. A Guy’s Guide to the Good Life, Virtues for Men
, by Robert Lockwood, is a wonderful book that will keep giving long after those Father’s Day hamburgers have been eaten. This small book would fit into the glove compartment, next to the bed or even on a workbench. Kevin Lynch, cofounder and president of the National Fellowship of Catholic Men, says it well: “Reading A Guy’s Guide to the Good Life
is like settling down with a cold beer on a warm night with a friend.” Bob Lockwood writes in a down-to-earth, conversational style that draws you in. Most of us guys are not lucky enough to have a friend who talks with such candor and humor as Bob. What a gift this is: a place to think about the good life with another guy who knows what it is all about.
While you’re treating Dad to a little soul food, don’t forget your own spiritual needs as well. Take a few moments to review our Web sites: http://www.friarjack.org/
