Micaiah J. Young’s new book Made in His Image, But His Shadow is all I’ve Seen ($15.49, paperback, 9781498488136; $7.99, eBook, 9781498488143) shares that when an individual does not know where he or she comes from, the quest for identity is one that can last for a lifetime. Identity is gained through association with parents. Your father gives you his name and you become a carrier of his genes and legacy. When that relationship does not exist, there is a major void that must be addressed and can only be filled by God himself. The point of this book is acknowledging the impact of fatherlessness along with embracing the reality that it is possible to recover and be a whole person living out your purpose.
Young says, “Many individuals can relate to having had an absentee father, so this book will automatically speak to the masses. My story, however, is unique in that the occurrences almost seem to be movie script. The only difference is that this is a real life drama. I met my father for the first time at 35 years old, which was highly unlikely because prior to my birth he returned to Nigeria and never came back to the U.S. to live or to meet me. I searched for him not knowing what he looked like or whether he was alive. Miraculously, I found him.”
This is Micaiah J. Young’s story. He has lived it every day of his life and he understands what it is to experience several challenges and much pain because he was abandoned by his father. As a pastor and chaplain, he counsels people regularly who are suffering just as he was. Young’s degrees in Psychology and Divinity help to shape his perspective and widen his understanding of the causes and effects of fatherlessness. Ultimately, he is a survivor. He has forgiven his father and God has healed him. Therefore, he is willing to share his story to heal someone else.
