Praise for Joseph's Way:
"Devin Schadt's Joseph's Way: The Call to Fatherly Greatness is
distinctively unique, bold, and most timely for the man of today. This
is no call for a Ward Cleaver or an Archie Bunker stereotype, rather, it
is a poignant and pertinent challenge to men to be REAL men, i.e., men
of HONOR and men of FAITH, especially when it involves the gift of
FATHERHOOD. It is an inspired look into the patriarchal blueprint which
gives us a glimpse into the mystery of Divine Paternity. God the Son
came to reveal to us the love of God the Father and through God the Holy
Spirit we are reborn as adopted children of God. Joseph's Way
will become a classic but it will also help many men realize their
sacred vocation to become great and holy fathers to their children.
Assisted by their beloved spouses, fatherly greatness is no longer the
purview of a few nor the possibility of some. Every man, especially
every husband and every dad would appreciate and benefit from this
- Rev. Fr. John Trigilio, Jr., PhD, ThD, President, Confraternity of Catholic Clergy author, Catholicism for Dummies Pastor, Our Lady of Good Counsel Church
"There is a distinct voice in Devin Schadt's Joseph's Way: The Call to Fatherly Greatness.
It is a voice reminiscent of Thomas À Kempis. An ageless voice echoing a
wisdom outside of time directed to the men of our time. This is not a
soft summons to fatherly niceness. Nor is it a pleasant call to fatherly
goodness. It is instead a tough, bold, game changing challenge to the
men of our age to pursue fatherly greatness. It is an inspired decoding
of a patriarchal plan reflecting nothing less than the Divine Paternity
in the life of His Son's earthly father. It is utterly, inexpressibly,
authentically transcendent. Joseph's Way is destined to be a spiritual masterpiece."
- Brian Gail, best-selling Catholic author, Fatherless
"Joseph's Way: The Call to Fatherly Greatness is the perfect
devotional for modern-day dads and husbands who want to walk in the
footsteps of the man who most perfectly fulfilled his vocation to the
married life. It was not without reason that God chose St. Joseph from
all eternity to be the spouse of Our Lady and the earthly icon of his
own Fatherhood. Joseph's faith, humility, and obedience serve as a
blueprint for all of us who are striving within our families to become
the men that God calls us to be. Within these pages, Devin Schadt offers
spiritual insights that are practical, straightforward, and
unapologetically challenging. When speaking to young men who would soon
become fathers and husbands, Pope John Paul II noted, "We men do not
have a deep enough interior life." Thanks to this series of books, this
concern of our late Holy Father could gradually be laid to rest."
- Jason Evert, best-selling Catholic author, speaker
"How can so many words of wisdom be distilled from so silent a source?
Taking the great St. Joseph -- that mysterious figure who goes through
the New Testament without saying a word -- as his exemplar and
inspiration, Devin Schadt has given husbands and fathers (and hence
families) a very practical set of tools and insights with which to "step
it up." This is not another churchy program. It's a Way that works.
Indeed, this deceptively slender book series shows men that they weren't
made to be meh, but magnificent.
- Patrick Coffin, author and host, Catholic Answers Live
"In this age which seems to demean the role of husband and father, St.
Joseph presents a startling and wonderful contrast to the selfish and
indulgent view which so many have of husbands and fathers. His humility
and obedience together with his faith, challenge us to become the men
who God has called us to be. I am convinced that pursuing the volumes of
Joseph's Way: The Call to Fatherly Greatness will be a great value and gift for those who choose to read them."
- Most Reverend John J. Myers, Archbishop of Newark
