Within the last several decades, the world has shifted dramatically and we see it in our economy, in our cultural debates, and most importantly, in our families and churches. The problem is that people of faith tend to overreact to these changes fearing that Christianity is dying and the world is changing faster than we know how to respond.

Generational expert and church consultant HAYDN SHAW helps Christians relax so they can get smarter about how they handle the ten issues that are worrying them in this time of rapid change. Each generation, from the Greatest Generation to the Millennials, approaches God with a different set of questions and needs based on the time in which they grew up. Haydn walks you through these generational changes and paints a vision of hope for a bright future.

featherAll of these problems share one thing in common: they are rooted in generational differences. We read things in the news and we hear statistics thrown around, yet we often don’t know enough about the problems to know how big of a deal these differences are or what to do about them. We need intelligence to help us sort fact from terrifying fiction.

That’s where Generational IQ comes in.Generational Book Cover Front 3D If we don’t have generational intelligence, we overreact to the small things, ignore the big things, and do the wrong things, making our relationships worse. Generational differences or what the best research says may not be your thing, but if you do care about any of these ten issues, you will want the insights and practical ideas in this book.
