“The events of 2020 are revealing how each of us makes sense of important things like science, justice, uncertainty, authority, and Ultimate Reality. With his new book, Tim Elmore shows us his cards: wisdom and compassion for the next generation must take center stage. In The Pandemic Population, Tim tackles key moves caring adults can make—and helpful mindsets they can embrace—with and for children in turbulent times. It could be argued that The Pandemic Population is founded upon a belief in the phenomenal potential and promise of young people. Throughout this must read, Tim constantly inspires us to pay attention to the plans, feelings, and thoughts of young people, and he helpfully instructs us how to shepherd children wisely and kindly for such a time as this.“
