Publisher's Description

Why is my daughter drifting from God? Why can’t I explain my life choices to my parents? When will my son get a real job?
Within the last several decades, the world has shifted dramatically. The cracks of this fundamental shift appear everywhere: in our economy, in our cultural debates, in our political landscape, and, most important, in our churches. The problem is we tend to overreact to these changes, fearing that Christianity is dying. We need better Generational IQ, so we can respond to the changes but not be terrified by them. We need a wise generational coach. Haydn Shaw is that generational expert, showing us the roots of this generational shift and how it affects every one of us. Each generation, whether it’s the aging Boomers or the young Millennials, approaches God with a different set of questions and needs based on the times in which they grew up. Haydn walks you through these generational differences and paints a vision of hope for the future.

    Every person involved in Christian ministry needs to read GenerationalIQ. For the first time in history, we are trying to minister to five generations at the same time. There are bound to be struggles. Haydn Shaw, author of Sticking Points, teaches sincerely concerned readers how to navigate through them with understanding and grace.

    Just as he did in Sticking Points, Shaw begins by defining each of the four older generations. This time, though, he explains how the generation we are born into affects our relationship with God. As he moves from the traditionalists to the millenials, he helps readers grasp subtle shifts in thinking that have taken place through the years resulting in dramatically different world views for each generation.

    Next he answers questions about relating and reaching out to family and friends in other generations. In the first few of these chapters, hes writing mostly to parents and grandparents about the younger generations, then he addresses the church, helping ministers and members see how they can more effectively tell unchurched people of all generations about our amazing and faithful God.

    His most important advice: listen, love, be patient, answer questions honestly, trust God. His insights into each generations mindset show readers how to do this well.

    I enjoyed Shaws first book, Sticking Points, but wasnt sure what he could add to my understanding of generations in Generational IQ. This new book adds a lot, though. In fact, I think, in the long run, Ill find the understanding I gained from the new book to be even more valuable. If you live with or minister to people of different generations, youll appreciate Shaws hopeful outlook and deep insights. I recommend this book.

    You've heard the cry that the church is dying. Shaw says the future can be bright but we need to increase our understanding of what's going on increase our generational intelligence.

    In the first half of the book, Shaw gives us information on the generations. He identifies them, gives us the basics of what they believe, shows how the time in which they were born shapes them, and reveals their strengths and temptations.

    I am impressed with this information. I now have a much better understanding of why those of younger generations behave as they do. As an older Baby Boomer, I've got some insight as to why Generation Xers are cynical and skeptical. I have a much better understanding why Millennials are so confident and see morality so differently than I do. I understand the emerging adulthood phenomenon and why twenty-something young people are still living at home.

    The second half of the book builds on the information Shaw gave in the first half. He helps parents know how to engage their prodigal children. He has very good insights and suggestions about those leaving the church and cohabiting, for example. Then he explores what the generational information means for the church. He assures us Christianity will not disappear but he also identifies the challenges the church is facing, such as the way outreach is done. He has good suggestions for reaching young people and helping them think through intellectual challenges. He also includes ideas for older people, such as when their church becomes something they no longer like.

    I am impressed with the understanding and insight Shaw has concerning generational differences. I know from my own family experience that he is right on. I knew the younger generation was different and now I know how and why. I also have some good ideas about initiating conversation with them, that is, listening first.

    Shaw has presented lots of great information in this book to help us understand the generational differences. He admits he does not have all the answers. But he does have some good ideas to start the dialog. I highly recommend this book to parents, pastors and church leaders who want to understand generational differences. It would be great for young people too, as it will help them understand the older generations.

    We all need to increase our generational intelligence and this book is a good place to start.

    I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
