In a country where nearly half of all children will go to bed without a father, Wilson's book speaks to a relevant topic that's in desperate need of hearing the truth. Topics that Wilson delves into include the role of fathers, how the feminist puzzle piece fits into the issue, seeing God as a Heavenly Father, and much more, but does so in an effort to call out the men to fulfill their obligation/role as a godly dad to their children. In doing so, Wilson believes that a variety of problems will find some resolve and betterment.
Wilson's research on Father Hunger is extensive and well researched. And while I'd hope the author would do so in approaching a topic such as this one and talks about many sociological factors, at times when reading it, I found myself drifting as it was too textbook sounding at bits and didn't personally hold my attention for a long time, therefore it took me twice as long to get through. At the same time though, when Wilson does explain certain research and stats, he does so in plain speak, but again, not in a necessarily engaging manner. Overall, I found the topic to be an interesting one, and this book to be well-written, but it was a bit of slow read for me personally.
