About this book . . .

  • Who loves a father—a human father?
  • What is patriarchy? Is it good, bad, irrelevant, or the very best of all?
  • Who loves the Father-God? What is His Patriarchy?
  • Is God really Father? If so, what does His Fatherhood mean?

The answer to the last question is that God's Fatherhood means everything. In the face of rebellion against authority, the drive for egalitarian structures, the rejection of masculism and the assertion of feminism, there is the mystery of God as Father. Refuse this and we may find true sociality will eventually evaporate, leaving in its place a society more confused and less integrated than ever.

In this book Geoffrey Bingham has taken up the heart of the Trinitarian Godhead, and shown its biblical reality in that man must have God as Father, and have Him at the centre of his being. Anything less leaves man as dehumanised. The book has a strong prophetic ring, and it sounds a tocsin of urgency. A return to God's Fatherhood—the central mystery and meaning of all life and sociality—is urgently demanded.
