The Good Father by Noah Hawley

An intense, psychological novel about one doctors suspense-filled quest to unlock the mind of a suspected political assassin: his twenty-year old son.
As the Chief of Rheumatology at Columbia Presbyterian, Dr. Paul Allens specialty is diagnosing patients with conflicting symptoms, patients other doctors have given up on. He lives a contented life in Westport with his second wife and their twin sons—hard won after a failed marriage earlier in his career that produced a son named Daniel. In the harrowing opening scene of this provocative and affecting novel, Dr. Allen is home with his family when a televised news report announces that the Democratic candidate for president has been shot at a rally, and Daniel is caught on video as the assassin. 
Daniel Allen has always been a good kid—a decent student, popular—but, as a child of divorce, used to shuttling back and forth between parents, he is also something of a drifter. Which may be why, at the age of nineteen, he quietly drops out of Vassar and begins an aimless journey across the United States, during which he sheds his former skin and eventually even changes his name to Carter Allen Cash.
Told alternately from the point of view of the guilt-ridden, determined father and his meandering, ruminative son, The Good Father is a powerfully emotional page-turner that keeps one guessing until the very end. This is an absorbing and honest novel about the responsibilities—and limitations—of being a parent and our capacity to provide our children with unconditional love in the face of an unthinkable situation.

Curse of Ham

It is a popular story for children because it is simple, understandable and has a great message. By itself it is a great story. It becomes even more exciting and meaningful when seen as a picture of the promised Redeemer in the Bible. The Bible says that the time of Noah was a wicked time. The times were so evil that God said He would destroy man from the earth. But then God thought about Noah.

Noah had three sons according to the book of Genesis : Shem, Ham, and Japheth. After the Flood , Noah's sons and their wives and offspring repopulated the world. Bible scholars debate over who was the oldest, middle, and youngest. Genesis calls Ham Noah's youngest son. Genesis says Shem's older brother was Japheth; therefore, Shem had to be born in the middle, making Japheth the oldest. The issue is confusing because birth order usually is the same as the order names are listed. However, when the sons are introduced in Genesis , the passage reads "Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

Noah's sons played a big role in the creation of the arksense of unity by being a continued presence in Noah and his family's life and actions.

For a period in its history the Latter Day Saint movement used the curse of Ham to prevent the ordination of black men to its priesthood. The objective of the story may have been to justify the subject status of the Canaanites , the descendants of Ham, to the Israelites , the descendants of Shem. In the Psalms, Egypt is equated with Ham. What does it mean that God will "enlarge" Japheth?
