I read Faith of My Fathers because of the interesting premise of three generations of pastors sharing, via dialogue, diverse opinions on topics of relevance to today’s culture. While it was interesting at times and an easy read there wasn’t as much insight to be gained as promised.
The book is mostly Seay’s opinion, and he has the final word, on relevant topics with quips from the other members of his family. When there were disagreements the grandfather tended to quit talking and the father seemed to cave a lot to the tag team of Seay and his brother along with Donald Miller, making a guest appearance.
The book didn’t live up to its promise or potential. Ultimately, an interesting but shallow look at a family and how they deal with each other.

This book was provided by the publisher as a review copy.
