Item description for Dear Grandchild, by Rick Shrader...
Overview Wouldn't you like to speak to your loved ones in the future? Dear Grandchild is a collection of letters written by the author to his future grandchildren. Of course, they have not yet been born, so it is a one-way conversation. Written over a ten-year period, Grandfather (as the author sees himself) constantly probes and gently instructs coming generations to continue in the manners and morals of their ancestors. These unique letters often take delightful turns through the author's own experiences, and yet always apply the lessons to the next generation. Sometimes the lesson to be learned is pointed and directed to current moral dilemmas. Often the letters are curious questions about what life must be like two generations from now. Written from a Christian point of view, Dear Grandchild serves as a moral compass for those who will struggle with the future questions of life.

Are you able to talk with your grandchildren about current Biblical issues? Perhaps your grandchildren are not yet born; maybe you need help posing the questions and providing Biblical answers. This book is a generation connection that clearly lays out the Biblical answers for dilemmas we all face in our Christian walk. It's an opportunity to leave a personal style legacy of our daily struggles in the Christian life for future generations. In Dear Grandchild, the answers to these problems are based in Biblical study. This book is not an opinion of Scripture, nor is it a "this worked for me so it must be right" narrative. Shrader's method of discerning truth is clearly stated in Chapter 19: "If I were to be so bold, I would simply say that whereas Christianity has always held to antithesis in thinking (one thing and its opposite cannot both be true),[today's students]are opting for a dialectical approach to truth (out of opposites can come synthesis, a whole new truth). The older method of learning (antithesis) demanded that we listen and search until the truth was found. The newer method (synthesis) suggests that our own blending of information can create a truth that is right for us." The author is one of the most learned scholars of our day. Through his Aletheia ministry, he reads and reviews several books every week, comparing their precepts with the truths found in Scripture. The answers he gives in Dear Grandchild come from this same scholarly study. Written in a unique form of personal letters reminiscent of C.S. Lewis' style, this book should be a gift every new grandparent gives his grandchild. When you can't be with your grandchildren, this book should be.
