Product Description

Christian Fatherhood: Eight Commitments of St. Joseph's Covenant Keepers 
 by Stephen Wood   Available:  Study Guide/(Apple), DVD, DVD & Leader's Guide


This 10th anniversary edition expanded by the author includes updated statistics and family research along with words from Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI. Christian Fatherhood is the best-selling book covering the eight commitments of St. Joseph’s Covenant Keepers and gives dads the tools they need to succeed as husbands and fathers. Endorsed by Mother Teresa, Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke, Prefect of the Apostolic Signatura, Cardinal Stafford, Cardinal O’Connor, and many others, this book presents a genuine Christian perspective for renewing the world by restoring the vocation of fatherhood.In a world where the high calling of covenantal fatherhood is undervalued at best and more often ignored, Christian Fatherhood is an invaluable resource to help men understand and live out their vocation.

Men who read this book will learn:  

  • Why covenant keeping is so important
  • How to follow St. Joseph as a role model for fathers
  • What it means to be a “servant leader” of a family
  • How the sacraments are necessary for effective fatherhood
  • How to improve communication in your marriage
  • How busy dads can preserve their priorities and manage their time 
  • Ingredients necessary for building a successful men's ministry
  • What your children want most from you – and how to give it
  • How to protect, provide for, and educate your children 

Christian Fatherhood includes a chapter on the effects of birth control on a marriage and family and challenges Christian men to follow the Church’s teaching in this area of their marriage. This chapter is not only effective, it is life-transforming. It has literally saved marriages on the brink of divorce and brought many Christian men back into the fullness of the Catholic faith. This small chapter is worth its weight in gold for its unique effectiveness in communicating to men in a simple, challenging and straightforward way how birth control affects their marriage and their relationship with God. 

There are very few contemporary Catholic books written to dads about their vocation. Christian Fatherhood is a unique resource and the perfect tool to help any father become the very best Dad he can be. 

What Others are Saying about Christian Fatherhood:Christian Fatherhood identifies and addresses the unique needs of fathers. It gives men the practical truths to become faithful husbands and conscientious fathers. This book presents a genuine Christian prescription for renewing the world by restoring the vocation of fatherhood.” 

- James Francis Cardinal Stafford, president, Pontifical Council for the Laity 

“I had the opportunity to study in detail your book, and I found it very edifying. I have since requested several copies to distribute among those who are helping me give guidance to the spiritual development of Catholic men.”
- Cardinal Raymond Burke, Vatican Curia 

"Christian Fatherhood will be a great blessing to all who read it and put its teachings into practice. I will be praying that the Lord will bring peace into the world through the love of fathers for their families.” - Mother Teresa 

Christian Fatherhood is a championship game plan for fathers who will turn their hearts toward their children. Fathers, open and read this plan!”
- Rick Strom, former NFL Quarterback, Pittsburgh Steelers, Buffalo Bills

" I couldn't help but think about my 'reversal' and the fortune I received from God, in my two daughters, my marriage when I opened my heart to the Church and her teachings through my reading of Christian Fatherhood. God Bless You Steve! -- Kevin

 "I have purchased several copies of you book "Christian Fatherhood" and loaned them out, never asking for them back.  I hope and pray the books I give away will have the same impact on others as it did me. -- Tony

  1. Didn't order enough books 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Jun 2015

    We started a men's prayer group in our Parish about 15 years ago using "Christian Fatherhood" as a guide. We decided to order 112 books to distribute the dads after Sunday Mass on Father's Day this year. We ran out of books and in order to fill the demand we ordered more books and study guides. This is a perfect opportunity to reach out to more fathers with a book study in the fall. Thanks to Connie at Family Life Center for their great service!

  2. An exceptional book on Christian Fatherhood 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Dec 2014

    Just a rock solid, encouraging book for husbands and dads who want to help their families [and themselves!] get to Heaven. Just great! Can't recommend it highly enough. Great book for a men's prayer or study group.

  3. Christian Fatherhood 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Mar 2014

    Hello Mr. Wood
    I ordered your book Christian Fatherhood & decided to share it with other Fathers in my family. We started to meet at my home once a month to share our marital experiences & the 8 commitments of St Josephs Covenant Keepers. Our Men's Fellowship group has grown since & would like more information on how we can promote St Joseph Covenant Keepers. Do you have banners or a certain logo to use on flyers to evangelize to other men & invite them to our gatherings. We are planning a Father's Day Dinner this June. Thank you for your time and your service to our Church.
    Sincerely in Christ,
    José Bernal (RCIA Facilitator)
    Holy Family Parish Wilmington CA.
