Are you a divorced father?
The Single Dad Detour, by Tez Brooks, written for the divorced father who needs help fathering after the divorce.
This book includes humor, real-life stories from Brooks and other fathers, along with spiritual guidance to help guide divorced fathers into the next step of their lives.
Each chapter is based on driving and includes prayers, tips, Bible verses and more.

Disclosure: I am a married woman.
I thought The Single Dad Detour was well written and the use of the car theme was perfect for men.
Since the book has the car theme, the table of contents is designed with the car and driver in mind. Some of the chapter names were very catchy:
- “Who’s Driving? (Giving God Control).”
- “Model Cars (Avoiding Image Traps).”
- and “Fuzzy Dice (Rethinking Tradition).”
The rest of the chapter names were just as catchy.
While it was great that I enjoyed the names of the chapters, I found that the information in each chapter was humorous, serious, and very helpful for a man who has been recently divorced. These chapters have the author, Tez Brooks’, story, other men’s stories, and how it all relates to God. At the end of each chapter there were study questions, Bible verses, ideas to use, and a prayer.
I recommend this book to any single dad no matter how long he has been divorced.
