Father's Day Books 2014

As we approach the start of summer, we are blessed with the opportunity to express our gratitude and appreciation for our fathers. They give us so much over the years --- love, encouragement, advice --- and Father’s Day is a special time to give back. And what better gift is there than a book, especially one about faith and fatherhood? To help out, we’ve compiled a list of titles that make perfect Father's Day presents. These works of fiction and nonfiction celebrate the things our dads do well and encourage them in their relationships, both with their family and with God. So, on June 15th, be sure to take time out of your day to thank the fathers in your life for all they’ve done.

The Auschwitz Escape by Joel C. Rosenberg

As the Nazi war machine rolls across Europe, young Jacob Weisz is forced to flee his beloved Germany and join an underground resistance group in Belgium. But when a rescue operation goes horribly wrong, Jacob finds himself trapped in a crowded cattle car headed to southern Poland. Sentenced to hard labor in the Auschwitz labor camp, Jacob forms an unlikely alliance with Jean-Luc Leclerc, a former assistant pastor who was imprisoned for helping Jews. They’ve been chosen for one of the most daring and dangerous feats imaginable --- escape from Auschwitz.
