The story of fatherlessness is being written into the heart of our generation. It is heard in our songs, seen in our movies, read in our blogs. It is a story of grief, pain and loss, of shame, loneliness and rejection. A story that desperately needs to be heard. But fatherlessness is more than a personal tragedy. It is a growing epidemic. Fatherlessness is the driving force behind our society's biggest problems such as: gangs, teenage pregnancy, drug abuse and suicide. Speaking from his experience as the President of The Mentoring Project, Sowers shows how we can offer the fatherless hope. He speaks from his own fatherlessness and from training and leading thousands to "win by showing up" in the lives of fatherless youth. Sowers believes the fatherless story can be rewritten, as we show up in the lives of the fatherless in the same way Christ showed up in our lives at the Incarnation.
