Mike Yaconelli is the author of bestselling books Dangerous Wonder and Messy Spirituality. He was the senior editor for the Wittenburg Door (1971-1996), a satirical religious magazine noted for its irreverent humor, in-depth interviews, and commitment to reforming the evangelical church. He was the cofounder of Youth Specialties, an international organization devoted to equipping youth workers through training and resources. Mike was a prophetic voice in the church-at-large and was a devoted husband and father until his death in 2003.

He was the senior editor for the Wittenburg Door and he was the cofounder of Youth Specialties. Mike was a prophetic voice in the church and in the lives of many Church workers and pastors until his death in 2003; and he is deeply missed.
So as you can imagine I was surprised to learn he'd written a new book! Well, not really. "You don't have to be perfect" is an old book with a new cover and title. This volume was previously released as "Devotion; a raw truth journal on Following Jesus" and published back in 2004.
The original 2004 book was more stylized and had a very "creative" page layout. The book was geared to teens and so it was published in a way that was very MTV, but this new layout is much more straightforward and I think is an over-all and better presentation.
Again, this is a teen devotional so it's topics are geared to things that would appeal to that age bracket; things like bravery, questions, obstacles, sympathy, feeling plain, distrust, power and limitations.
Each of the 30 day readings includes a subject for the day and a short devotional about it, Mike then includes something personal, and he gives the reader something to do, either a journal entry to write or a top 10 list to complete.
This is a great devo for teens and certainly one to add to your collection if you're a Yaconelli fan. Thank you to Zondervan for this preview copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.
