About the Episode

In this episode of the Hope + Help Podcast, host Christine Chappell interviews Tom Sugimura about his book, Hope for New Dads: 40 Days in the Book of Proverbs. Some of the questions addressed in this interview are:

• How do secular attitudes about fatherhood contrast with a biblical view of this God-given role?
• How does the gospel offer encouragement for the dad who did not have a godly father or role-model in their life?
• What is “fear of the Lord” and what is it’s relevance to Christian fathers?
• Why is it important to help our children look at their decision-making through a God-centered lens?
• Are the proverbs to be viewed by Christian dads as a book of promises?
• What can it look like for a Christian father to be intentional about the love he displays for his children?
• What are some ways the local church can improve upon their support and discipleship of fathers?
• What encouragement does the gospel offer to the father who is unsure about his ability to be a godly dad?
