In this practical and biblical resource for grandparents, Larry McCall helps readers confidently carry out their mission of gospel-focused grandparenting. Rather than relying on personal stories and ideas alone, Grandparenting with Grace seeks to answer “What is God’s calling on grandparents?” by explaining the Bible’s teaching in clear, accessible ways. Readers hungry to know more about God’s calling for this role will find inspiration, encouragement, and gospel hope.
Many people in our culture look at grandparenting primarily as an opportunity to make occasional fun memories with their grandkids. There’s often little thought given to the idea of intentionally and spiritually pouring into grandchildren.
McCall urges readers to look at grandparenting from an eternal perspective, considering how to be involved in their families in God-honoring ways. By applying biblical wisdom, grandparents can also strengthen the local church as they continue to see and pursue God’s calling to present the gospel to the coming generations.
