This 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.
We 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.
Although 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.
I 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.
I 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)
