Good4 Stars Out Of 5Passing the baton of faithOctober 12, 2021GoodI received this book as part of a book launch team in exchange for an honest review.
Everybody has heard the expression "The apple doesn't fall from the tree". Usually this refers to kids liking shopping as much as their parents, or not liking certain activities, but Anne Graham Lotz and her daughter Rachel Ruth Lotz Wright think it should also refer to our Christian faith. Comparing it to a relay race, they illustrate how one runner must pass on the baton to the next runner in order for the race to continue. Anne shows us through the first ten generations in the Bible, which are Adam through Noah, and how each generation named one person who passed on their faith to their family. Rachel Ruth then will take over from her mom and demonstrate those points through anecdotes of being raised by the woman who was raised by Billy Graham, and how she is now preparing the baton for her own daughters to carry. Even if you don't have children at home, this book is great for all Christians who want to share their faith with the younger generations.
I don't currently have kids, but I do have nephews and a niece, and am open to having kids of my own in the future one day. As someone who was raised in a Christian home by parents who were also raised by Christian parents, it never really occurred to me that it was my responsibility to pass the baton so to speak. I just always assumed that if I had kids they would grow up in church like I did then would just make the choice for themselves to become Christians. I do know people who were raised in Christian homes and chose to go their own way, but just always chalked it up to some people finding the ways of the world more enticing. After reading this book it shows how exactly you need to help the next generation along, and how to more effectively pass the baton. That doesn't mean all children will take the baton, or even take it right away. There may be some fumbles and drops of the baton too, nor does it mean that adults are failures if the child doesn't receive the truth. This book just helps to give some pointers and encouragement for the journey.
Cindy NavarroCullman, ALAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Jesus FollowersOctober 5, 2021Cindy NavarroCullman, ALAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Jesus Followers: Real-Life Lessons for Igniting Faith in the Next Generation by Anne Graham Lotz and Rachel-Ruth Lotz Wright is about building a family legacy of authentic faith!
The daughter and the granddaughter of evangelist Billy Graham share stories of how the Baton of Belief has been passed down from previous generations and how they continue to pass it to the next generations. They also explore characters and stories of biblical characters found in Genesis 5. Not only do we see how faith was passed down to others in Biblical history, but we have actual stories from the lives of a family known worldwide for sharing their faith... this time within a more intimate setting of their home life.
Basically, the book tells stories of how members of the Graham family, including spouses families, learned how to trust and follow Jesus demonstrate the importance of remembering that loved ones are watching and listening. Some of the moments shared revealed how childhood memories make a greater impact than realized at the time.
Each of the 4 parts has an introduction that shares about passing the Baton of Truth. A question is often included at the end of each chapter with Scripture and a Be a Jesus Follower statement. The book isn't exactly what I expected, but in many ways, it was what I need. My cousins and I treasure memories of our grandparents and parents, but don't pass enough of those memories down. Most of all, though, I need to focus on the legacy I am leaving my children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. A legacy of faith is vital.
Thank you to Net Galley and Waterbrook-Multnomah Publishers for providing a copy of this book in advance to read. I was not required to give a positive review, but asked for an honest one. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
