Faith of a Father: a Father's Open Letter to his Daughter
frank barbehenn, author
The highly readable story of Frank’s emerging faith in Jesus is a spellbinding dance among various forces in his life. In this most personal, page-turning exposé, he courageously discloses how trauma shaped his life—nearly from the moment of his birth. Beginning in infancy, he was traumatized by an extraordinarily cold, emotionless alcoholic mother. From early childhood on, he was emotionally abused by an angry, disabled father. Later, in midlife, he was twice traumatized by disabilities—disabilities that emerged as a result of his childhood. He reveals utterly intimate details of how his mind was forged through those traumas—driving his unchosen but painstaking quest for spiritual truth. It’s the story of how one man found and embraced faith—not only the circumstances that engendered it, but the forces deep inside him that shaped his hypnotic draw to it. In poignant detail, he describes how that faith really looks—from the inside out—from deep within his own psyche.
