Our Father chronicles the life of Bruce Smith, former pro football star and real estate magnate turned pastor. The story begins with his childhood following his biological father’s abandonment of his family, and details his life growing up in segregated Texas. His odyssey takes him from Huntsville, Texas to Colorado and finally to Canada, but the specter of being fatherless haunts him well into his forties until a spiritual awakening changes everything. Bruce writes that "Where I grew up, there were lots of mothers and grandmothers. They acted as the patriarchs. It wasn’t that lots of men weren’t around. There were just very few fathers, who represented any definition you would find in a dictionary."
