Carman Boley4 Stars Out Of 5Good devotionalOctober 6, 2010Carman BoleyQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3This 100 day Devotional for teens is a great source for a teen who wants to see how Bible stories can relate to them since they aren't "old." For the most part, this was a great devotional and I enjoyed it. It seemed to have good insight into the Word, and relevant scripture usage. There were only a few things that I disagreed with, or was a little "fuzzy" on. All in all, I think this is a good place for teens to go to show stories and explain about the teenagers from the Bible.
Vivian Wu5 Stars Out Of 5April 1, 2009Vivian WuWe challenged our YG from the 1st of 2009 to read a chapter a day. Day 100 is Good Friday this year and it is exciting to see how our kids are starting to develop the habit of keeping a quiet time! Our kids enjoy the Just Like You real life stories and it encourages them to share their own stories too.
Patricia Chadwick5 Stars Out Of 5May 31, 2008Patricia ChadwickAlthough Teen People of the Bible is geared toward the Christian teen, I feel that will be of interest to any generation It is broken down into 100 short devotionals that are very enlightening. These devotionals help us to remember that the "saints" were people just like us, with their strengths and weaknesses. They show the reader that God loves them with all their faults and that He has a plan for their lives. It will encourage them to become all God intends them to be.
Mrs. Gwendolyn Gowans4 Stars Out Of 5May 17, 2008Mrs. Gwendolyn GowansI am using this material to encourage teens that Christian life just doesn't happen to adults. The need for humility and their tests mold Godly character. We have only gone through 3 of the lessons because we meet weekly for an hour, but it has brought some very interesting reality. They also realize that teens were in the Bible. I as an teacher am learning too. I appreciate Christian Book for having the material we needed that is of interest to our youth.
Barbara Elliott5 Stars Out Of 5March 4, 2008Barbara ElliottI am using this in my Sunday School class (Middle and High School students). The first lesson, about Cain and Abel, was very interesting and informative...it answered an issue I had never really understood: Why was Cain's sacrifice not approved by God? The laws governing sacrifice had not yet been given. (Read the book for the answer) The related story for modern teens, immediately following the lesson, generated a good discussion. This is an excellent addition to my Sunday School lessons. I am looking forward to many interesting applications. It is also good to show teens that God is NOT only looking for perfect people, to do His work; and we can certainly learn from others' mistakes. (oops -- didn't mean to start a class HERE)

Tell us a little about yourself. I'm a second-generation Christian fortunate enough to have grown up in a Christian home with great parents. I have been a writer and editor with Victory In Grace Ministries for 8 years. I've been happily married to Angela for almost 5 years and we have a beautiful, little daughter, Grace, who is the light of our lives. Writing is my first passion, but it is closely followed by preaching and teaching the Bible. I'm a huge fan of the Cubs and Bears and love to play golf. I also dabble in politics from time to time.
What was your motivation behind this project? As a second-generation Christian, I've seen so many young people walk away from the church. Various polls have shown that between 75-88% of evangelical teens abandon their faith. This bothers me and I think one of the reasons is that teens just don't see the reality of the Christian faith. My goal with this book is to help teens understand that God, in His Word, speaks to them, in their situation, in their world. The Bible is full of stories of young people--40 in fact--whose life dramas are not much different than teen today.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? To help Christian teens understand that there really were guys and girls like them in the Bible and that the stories God included in His Word can provide them answers to some of their really tough questions.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I read a wide variety of Christian authors, some from today and some from hundreds of years ago. I really like all of the stuff Joshua Harris has written. I think he is open and honest and biblical in approaching some of the difficult issues that face young people. I also enjoy wise men like Warren Wiersbe and Charles Ryrie. I think Mark Buchanan and Phil Yancey are phenomenal wordsmiths, even if I don't always agree with their conclusions. Randy Alcorn's, Heaven is a great book. And of course, my pastor, Dr. James A. Scudder has been my primary spiritual influence.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: The Bible is not just a book full of stories of old men and woman. There are many young people who faced enormous challenges, temptations, and struggles. God put these stories in the Bible for a reason, so every generation of young people could learn and grow. God cares about every young person and doesn't want any of them to suffer the consequences of going their own way.
