Floyd McClung wrote, The Father Heart of God (Kingsway, 1991), out of his own experiences, ministering to young people through his work with Youth With A Mission.
Many people have a distorted view of God due to poor parenting or other bad experiences from authority figures, particularly in their childhood. McClung seeks to correct these distortions and show how God can heal the damage of these past experiences. About two-thirds through the book, McClung changes the emphasis and spends time discussing the sorts of (fathers and mothers) and spiritual leaders we need to be as we mature as Christians.
I found the book encouraging as it helped me to correct some of my thinking regarding God. It challenged me to grow closer to God and to look to Him first for the answers to my needs. Finally the book taught me some truths about spiritual leadership.
