THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO ST. BERNARD
Good News for the Grandkids from Pappy
About the Book
An intergenerational book: This is a great reference for grandparents, parents, and also grandchildren who are currently preparing for or have recently entered adulthood. It is an impassioned and inspiring account of experiences and lessons that an eighty year old grandfather shares with his grandchildren. Their ages range from early teens to early thirties. It focuses on living that is abundant and eternal. It explores the rapid changes that are occurring in our culture and offers answers for many of life’s questions facing today’s youth and young adults. The author points out that we often live in different worlds that foster conflict and dysfunction in our society. He proposes remedies though his version of the “ABCs of Life” and “Will and Testimony” which are instructive for facing important life-decisions. Before publishing, Bernie (Pappy) reviewed the concept of this effort with each of his grandchildren – they all expressed enthusiastic interest and excitement and want the first copies to be theirs. He states that this is probably his last effort at book writing and comes close to being his spiritual autobiography.
