"Every dad wants to be great, but few know how to do it. James
Merritt clearly outlines some non-negotiable and biblical
priorities that give clear direction to any dad on where and how to
start being powerfully influential with his kids. But most of all,
James is a devoted dad who loves his sons."
-Bryant Wright, senior pastor, Johnson Ferry Baptist Church, Marietta, GA
"Few Christian leaders possess the gifts and passion that Dr.
James Merritt has for communicating God's truth with power and
practicality. What God Wants Every Dad to Know challenges fathers
with life-changing truth straight from God's Word that can
transform our relationships with our kids. As a dad, I was
personally stretched and encouraged by Dr. Merritt's teaching."
-Dr. Stephen N. Rummage, senior pastor, Bell Shoals Baptist Church
