My son, who is 12 years old, and I love the book! He is getting the most use/value/understanding of his devotional time when he uses it. The book is written so he actually understands what the Bible is talking about in today's situations. He will be getting book two for next year.
I bought this book for a 16-year old niece in hopes of equipping and encouraging her to make wise, Biblical decisions. Josh McDowell is one of the best sources for absolute truth, especially with youth. I would recommend ANYTHING written by him.
I purchased this book as a gift for our 16-year old niece. Josh McDowell is one of, if not the best, source for encouraging teens to make wise decisions based on the absolute truths of Scripture. I would recommend anything with his name on it!
I have been going through this book with my two teen age sons, age 15 and 17, and they both enjoy it very much, it is entertaining and thought provoking at the same time. It opens the door to some discussions about real life issues they face.
I really didn't like this devotional book; there are better ones. Being a typical sixteen-year-old, I like things more interesting, and reading boring stories every day doesn't encourage me to keep doing devotions. Another factor that affects this book is that it came out in 1997. To me, that's a long time ago. It might help if a newer, more updated book was published, but it's just hard to concentrate on the stories in this book.
