Topics

+ Being Dad: a Father as a Picture of God’s grace

Dr. Keith’s talks will deal with the way fathers and men, and the subject of fatherhood and masculinity, are treated in modern culture. Dr. Keith brings his experience with family, students, great mentors and friends to bear on this subject which is crying out for attention. Equally, he brings his Christian faith, a scholarly eye for detail, an ear for story along on the journey and he works with the reader to navigate a path to a better country where the Father blesses His children and is honored. But, most of all he points to Christ and how he loves his creation, and how his model of masculinity and grace is a perfect lens in which we can orient ourselves in this modern culture.
