Lament for a Father

Father’s Day is next Sunday—and Monday, you’ll hear about Marvin’s dad. Marvin played catch with his father, Eli, only one time. And it didn’t end well. Eli never laughed and rarely spoke with his son. Now, journalist Marvin Olasky has uncovered the true story of what made his dad so distant. A lament for a father is coming up on Chris Fabry Live.
