Moyer, Doy, editor. Letters to Our Grandchildren: Biblical Lessons from Grandfathers to their Grandchildren (published in 2017 by Moyer Press, Birmingham, AL). Thirteen grandfathers, all of whom are faithful Christians and most of whom are gospel preachers, have written letters to their grandchildren who range in ages from infant to adult. The subjects include such important lessons on life for young people as loving to learn, loving God with all our hearts, loving our neighbor as ourselves, loving even our enemies, staying true to the word, daring to be different, standing firm in the faith, learning to be content, learning to grow, learning to forgive, controlling our emotions, respecting our parents, and developing our minds for God. This series of Bible related lessons is appropriate for teens to adults and focuses upon some of the most important aspects of what it means to serve God
I consider all but two of the authors as good friends. Four of them—David Carrozza, Gary Kerr, Jon Quinn, and Jim Deason—were fellow students with me at Florida College in Temple Terrace, FL, when I was there (1972-1974). Colly Caldwell was a professor at the College. Steve Klein, Wilson Adams, Leon Mauldin, Warren Berkley, Bill Robinson, and Doy Moyer are all personal acquaintances of mine. And I know Mike Wilson and David Posey by their good reputation. Each chapter has discussion questions with it, so the book would be useful not only for private study and devotion but also for a Bible class, small discussion group, or even homeschool setting. James R. Cope used to say, “A word to the sufficient is wise.” There is a wealth of thought provoking material here that will help to impart wisdom to those who are sufficient. Even “us old folks” can profit from reading it.
