Bishop Fadeyi, in his fourth literary offering, draws on the experience of Joseph from the Old Testament in the Bible, to illustrate how one becomes a real father. Despite spending many years in slavery and encountering many trials, Joseph embraced his role – “God has made me a father”. His unrelenting belief in God helped him to not only overcome his own challenges but to save and lead a nation. The relevance of Joseph bears testimony to the importance of leadership, strength and discipline, values of which are essential to the essence of fatherhood.
In the book, The Making of a Father, Bishop Fadeyi drives home his belief that fatherhood is a spiritual calling rather than a physical presence. The Bishop at Grace Outreach Church emphasises the notion, that the role of a father is not exclusively linked to being a man. Bishop Fadeyi is quoted as saying “It is God who makes us one in order to be a father or to carry out a role of a father. In the Bible you will find that there were women who by way of default played out the role of a father so in my book I touch on the spirit of fatherhood which goes beyond the male gender”.
He discusses the issue further in the book within the context of women playing both mother and father in single parent families.
Founded on God’s inspiration, The Making of a Father seeks to open your eyes to his plan for fathers to be made. Page by page you will be taken on a journey along God’s production line that purposefully converts ‘raw males’ into fatherhood. The many lessons in this book will bless your heart as you discover, embark upon or even re-visit fatherhood.
Bishop Fadeyi has written four books, including “The usual God”. He is a married father of three, who plans to write more books and to continue to share the word of God with his generation and many generations to come.
