God uses many words to describe himself, but one is stunningly personal—Father. This is thrilling… and problematic. You don’t have another Jesus, or another Holy Spirit, but you do have another father, and your experience with him changes the way you see God. Because of this, unknowingly, you may be “Father deficient” - lacking key resources God is offering, but you are still missing. With keen Biblical insight and inspiring stories Dave Patty shows you how to evaluate four key areas of your heart, and then unpacks the practical steps to deep transformation with Father resources from God. You will be amazed at the breadth of impact as you encounter this member of the Trinity in a new and deeply personal way.

God of Our Fathers: Classical Theism for the Contemporary Church
Protestantism today has an idolatry problem. Not merely in the sense of worshipping false gods—of pleasure, wealth, or politics—but in the sense of worshipping the Triune God of Scripture according to images and ideas of our own devising. Whether it’s a God who suffers and changes alongside his creatures, or a “Trinitarian circle dance” of divine personalities, or a hierarchically-arranged Trinity that serves as a blueprint for gender relations, modern evangelical theology has strayed far from historic Christian orthodoxy. Needing a God that can be put on a greeting card or in a praise song, our idolatrous hearts shrink the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob down to size, and make him more like us. Amidst this scramble to make God more relevant, we seem to have forgotten that the only God truly capable of saving us is a God who is radically other and transcendent, far above our imaginings. This incomprehensible God is not the God of the philosophers, as modern revisionists frequently charge, but the God of the Bible. The essays in this volume, written by scholars and pastors deeply concerned for the life of the church, seek to retrieve and defend the tradition of classical theism as the historic Protestant faith, rooted in Scripture, philosophically coherent, and still relevant to the needs of the church today.
Each of us grows up with a common longing and a deep-seated need for a father's blessing. That is...a father's love, support, acceptance, security, and presence in our lives. Sadly, for many this need is not met, or only partially fulfilled by an earthly dad. Still others not only lack a father's blessing, they have suffered the pain ad mistrust of a relationship gone wrong. As a result, some unknowingly transfer negative perceptions of fathers into their relationships with God. Yet, God longs to be known as a Perfect Father. Through Jesus Christ this relationship- and the promise of a Perfect Father's Blessing - is available to everyone. Through spiritual birth, we all can see, know, and enjoy God as a Perfect Father. 4 Part DVD Series 1. What You Think About When You Think About God (56:33) 2. Reflection vs. Perfection (54:54) 3.

Into Your Hands, Father: Abandoning Ourselves to the God Who Loves Us
In the spiritual life, we need a central idea: something so basic and comprehensive that it encompasses everything else. According to Carmelite Father Wilfrid Stinissen, surrender to God, abandonment to the One who loves us completely, is that central reality. The life of Jesus shows us the centrality of abandonment, for it is truly the beginning and the end of his mission on earth. In this simple but profound book, Father Stinissen distinguishes three degrees or stages in abandonment. The first stage consists of accepting and assenting to God's will as it manifests itself in all circumstances of life. The second is actively doing God's will at every moment of one's life. In the third stage, abandonment to God is so complete that one has become a tool in God's hands. At this stage it is no longer I who do God's will, but God who accomplishes his will through me.
