When we give someone our time, we give them our most valuable commodity. And, youth, especially, perceive receiving attention as being valued. In fact, they will take any attention, even if it is for errant behavior. The best way to teach young people that they are valuable and meaningful is to offer them uninterrupted attention. This is the deepest longing of our young people today, consistent, transparent relationship. In this book, Jerry Goebel reminds us that the greatest statement we make to young people is to spend time with them-to come to them especialy when they have been most inconsistent and, at that time, to be least judgmental.

For many teenagers, it is simply not cool to show interest in organized religion. Though many teens are interested in spiritual matters, they often believe that religion is something that's not quite real--at least, it's not as real as everyday experiences like family, friends, foes, school, parties, love, hate, anger, desire, and frustration.

This book and series are about religion for teenagers by a non-teenager, so most teenagers will be immediately suspicious. But the Being Real series shows how Catholicism recognizes the realities of teenage life and calls teenagers to a higher ideal amidst those realities. It provides a perspective that is both realistic and idealistic at the same time. It is also a perspective that satisfies the best of our human and spiritual desires and meets our deepest needs. The key to this vision of life is a real person: Jesus Christ.

The author presents the Church as the continuing visible presence of Christ, the most real of people, the pattern and power of all "being real." He shows that Christ challenges teens today, as he once challenged his followers in Galilee, to became more real.
