Publisher's Description

“Seven in 10 Protestants ages 18 to 30—both evangelical and mainline—who went to church regularly in high school said they quit attending by age 23, according to the survey by LifeWay Research.” (USA Today)

Don’t Check Your Brains at the Door gives teens answers that make sense, even for the toughest of questions. Internationally known defender of the faith Josh McDowell and co-author Bob Hostetler offer clarity laced with humor to expose common myths about God, the Bible, religion, and life to show how Christianity stands up to the test of fact and reason. Teens will be better equipped to stick with their faith as they begin to understand why they believe and why it’s important to make a lifetime commitment to Christ and the church.

Author Bio

As a young man, Josh McDowell considered himself an agnostic. He truly believed that Christianity was worthless. However, when challenged to intellectually examine the claims of Christianity, Josh discovered compelling and overwhelming evidence for the reliability of the Christian faith. After trusting in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, Josh’s life changed dramatically as he experienced the power of God’s love. After his conversion, Josh committed his life to telling a doubting world about the truth of Jesus Christ. After studying at Kellogg College, Josh completed his college degree at Wheaton College and then attended Talbot Theological Seminary, graduating magna cum laude with a Masters of Divinity. Working with Campus Crusade for Christ and founding the youth outreach, Josh McDowell Ministry, Josh has shared the gospel with more than 25 million people in 125 countries. He is the author or co-author of 147 books.

In Don't Check Your Brain at the Door, Josh McDowell and Bob Hostetler examine 42 different myths concerning faith and life that many young teens believe today. As the next generation, teens should know what they believe and why they believe it. Both authors strive to present the truth and urge teens to discover for themselves what the Bible truly says.

McDowell and Hostetler shed light on relevant issues and ideas about faith that are commonly misunderstood. The writing style is easy to read and understand, with short chapters for those readers who can’t focus for very long. The book could be read as a daily devotional. There is a section at the end of each chapter for the reader to interact with his Bible. Josh McDowell and Bob Hostetler are both involved in youth ministry and speak to teens all over the U.S. Hostetler is a pastor at Cornerstone Community Church in Hamilton, Ohio, an editor, and an author. McDowell is a traveling representative of Campus Crusade for Christ.

The authors confront myths about the Bible, God, Jesus, the resurrection, religion, life, and faith. They want to follow what Psalm 119:10-11 says: "I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands. I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you." By understanding the Bible and searching for the truths in Scripture, teens can have a solid theological foundation for their beliefs. Each myth is refuted by a biblical reference or by outside research books as cited in this publication.

Overall, this book is a solid text, especially for young teens or preteens. It is not the in-depth study that older teens would read, but its truths are valid. I would recommend this book for young teens to read as a devotional or for youth groups to use on retreats. – Ashlee Amann, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
