For the Culture
Restoring Christian values in the culture.
About the Book
The protective fabric of our pre-1960s Christian society, rooted in the Ten Commandments and the teachings of Jesus, is now threatened with extinction. Evil, remarkably emboldened, can seduce and threaten with a high expectation of success. Our children and grandchildren are being released into a toxic culture that is life-threatening to their Christian values.
We have arrived at this point because faithful Christians have, for the most part, absented themselves from the Public Square. In the last 50 years, for example, our presence there is minuscule compared to the early believers' zeal after Pentecost.
Many years ago, the author mentored his grandchildren over several years to shore up their Christian values. He named those sessions Grandpa School. Now, he's convinced our whole culture itself needs Grandpa School mentoring. Christian values must be restored as the standards for acceptable public behavior. They must be boldly advocated and practiced to heal and reverse the culture’s steady degradation.
Presented straightforwardly in this book are the Christian values that the author has identified for this important calling. Among them are: The existence of God, religion, evil, redemption, love, dating, sex, emotions, marriage and others. The material is written in an easy tone, absent of complicated theology. It will refresh your grasp of Christianity and be a quick reference source for discussion in the public square.
