More About Charles R. Swindoll
Charles R. Swindoll has devoted his life to the accurate, practical teaching and application of God s Word and His grace. A pastor at heart, Chuck has served as a senior pastor to congregations in Texas, Massachusetts, and California.

A leading program in Christian broadcasting since 1979, Insight for Living airs in major Christian radio markets around the world, reaching people groups in languages they can understand. Chuck s extensive writing ministry has also served the body of Christ worldwide, and his leadership as president and now chancellor of Dallas Theological Seminary has helped prepare and equip a new generation of men and women for ministry. Chuck and his wife, Cynthia, his partner in life and ministry, have four grown children, ten grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren."

Reviews - What do customers think about Dear Graduate?
a little too cheesy Aug 31, 2002
Not only is the writing in Dear Graduate trite and overly idiomatic, the message the book portrays is narrow-minded and often confusing. As an example, the opening of the letter on Godliness reads: "If you are a 'Sunday Christian,' you will not be alone when outnumbered. Apart from a personal and vital faith in Jesus Christ, it is impossible to wage a winning effort against the system called 'the world.'" Swindoll urges his graduates to rub shoulders with people to gain a panoramic view of the world (although friends "must be screened"), stay away from the magazine rack, and to guard our leisure time (from what?). This book is a sweet gift idea and is very visually pleasing, but unless you thrive on lists of cliches and obvious metaphors, it doesn't have much real-world relevance.
A wonderful reading experience Jul 29, 2001
This book is a small but powerful tool. The language is simple and the messages compeling. Swindoll created an excellent compilation of the issues that one faces in life. I especially like chapter 20 on guidance.
Great Book! Feb 21, 2001
This book is an awesome book with lots of wisdom in it! All of the letters are encouraging and I recommend this book for anyone that is graduating. The best thing to do is read it one letter at a time and think about what Chuck Swindoll is saying in them. This book was a real blessing to me as I read it after I graduated from high school and got out into the real world. I pray that it is a blessing to anyone who reads it. God Bless!
"a must have for any graduate" Mar 29, 2000
I would like to give this book a 5 star rating based on the response of the people I have given it to in the past years. I love to gift this book as it has excellent quotations for the new graduate, great advice and it has beautiful illustrations. Last year my godson wrote me a special thank you regarding this book and said, "he would treasure this book always" and went on to say that it was "his most prized and cherished" gift. And, he's not the type of kid to get sentimental. Once again, I'm placing an order for 6 more of this book and know it will touch the hearts of many new graduates once again this year. I hope all who order this book will enjoy it as much as I have.
