This book – A Toast To Fatherhood – primarily addresses the subject of fatherhood from the perspective of sons and daughters. The book builds on the common knowledge that a son or daughter is anyone born by a woman. Here, a father is defined to mean more than just biological father.
Through the chapters of A Toast to Fatherhood, the author seamlessly shares real life stories in addressing some thought-provoking issues related to the child-father relationship. These include:
- What is fatherhood: Is it a divinely initiated human institution or a mere collection of individuals called fathers?
- Why do son and daughters wait for their fathers to die before they find beautiful words in tributes to read over the dead bodies?
- And if so, then why shouldn’t you and I propose a toast to fatherhood and to fathers while they are alive?
