A family planning clinic volunteer calls out religious fundamentalism for what it is-a noxious affront to democracy. Flinging generous doses of snarky sarcasm, this hybrid of scholarship, memoir and polemic pulls no punches. An impassioned plea for Americans to defy religious fanatics and their lackeys who wage war against our secular country.
The Lord has shown me that Satan was once an honored angel in heaven, next to Jesus Christ. His countenance was mild, expressive of happiness like the other angels. His forehead was high and broad, and showed great intelligence. His form was perfect. He had noble, majestic bearing. And I saw that when God said to his Son, Let us make man in our image, Satan was jealous of Jesus. He wished to be consulted concerning the formation of man. He was filled with envy, jealousy and hatred. He wished to be the highest in heaven, next to God, and receive the highest honors. Until this time all heaven was in order, harmony and perfect subjection to the government of God.
Fathers play the most influential role in the stability and future success of their children. Yet so many times, children are left to grow up fatherless. In Life Without the Father, Clyde Stewart recounts his experiences as a young black man growing up without a father. When he found himself as a teenager with a child, he had to make a choice: perpetuate the cycle, or break free. Life Without the Father is written to guide men into success as they choose to fulfill their responsibilities as fathers. With common sense and spiritual insight, Clyde navigates the issues that fathers deal with and leads them to a place where they can see the vast importance of their role in this world. He reveals how God's divine purpose has been to entrust the seed of humanity with men, and that the blessings of the harvest are only possible through obedience to that calling. God has not called fathers in vain, however, because he has given them the power of his Holy Spirit so that they can accomplish and receive the blessings set before them. For those struggling with fatherhood, learn to see the true greatness and potential of a solid relationship with your child. For those that feel they have nothing to offer, find the special calling of God that he has only given to you.
