Book Spotlight: Good Good Father: A Children's Book from Chris Tomlin

Chris Tomlin & Pat Barrett Write First Children’s Book, Good Good Father

Chris Tomlin has written songs that are sung by more people on a weekly basis than any other songwriter in the world. Now, his most recent single and K-LOVE “Song of the Year,” Good Good Father, lends inspiration to the children’s picture book of the same name, available Oct. 4, 2016. This delightful story is Tomlin’s first book for children, co-written with Pat Barrett, and will leave little ones with a greater understanding of who God is and of who they are because they are loved by Him. 

“What an exciting journey to write my first children’s book,” said Tomlin. “Being a dad makes this so special. It’s my prayer that Good Good Father helps children understand the amazing reality that we can call God our Father, that we are His beloved sons and daughters. It’s a simple, yet powerful story—one that has been kid-tested in my own home and a joy to watch my girls experience.”  
Good Good Father is the story of a bear named Tucker whose life and townspeople are forever changed when they learn just how great the King's love is for them. Along the way, Tucker encounters a variety of curious, humorous animals who each know one great thing about the King. However, they each have limited views of what makes him good. This is a precious story that will leave children with a greater assurance that God truly is a good, good Father and they are loved by Him.


With 10 albums, 13 #1 radio singles, a Grammy Award, 21 Dove Awards, and two platinum and four gold albums to his credit, Chris Tomlin is among the most well-known and influential artists in music. His songs include “How Great Is Our God,” “Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone),” “Our God,” and most recently “Good Good Father,” to name a few. It is estimated that each week 20–30 million people sing one of Tomlin’s songs in worship. More than anything, Chris loves being a husband to Lauren and a daddy to Ashlyn and Madison. Pat Barrett is a husband, father, songwriter, and worship leader based out of Atlanta, Georgia. He is the worship pastor of Grace-Midtown Church and cowriter of the #1 song “Good Good Father.” Pat also travels with Housefires, a worship expression based out of the Atlanta area.
