Games Grandmas Play

Joan Jacobs

$32.99

Paperback
This book was written by a grandmother to help others understand "grandmotherhood" in a practical theological sense. She describes her spiritual growth as a Christian grandmother by recording some high and low points in her own experience of bringing together her faith and her relationships with her nine grandchildren and three of their first cousins. Jacobs sees herself as a "Christian grandmother" who is trying to break through the barriers set up by more evangelical connotations of this term that exclude rather than include others unlike oneself in the broad range of God's care and love. She also plays with the title of the book, of a number of years ago, Games People Play by showing how sharing games with her grandchildren has actually taught her important truths about herself and her faith, about God, and about others.
