Growing Up Christian will provide a shot of encouragement to those uncounted teens who have grown up immersed in Christianity.
With much attention paid to converts, teens who grow up in the church sometimes feel like second-class citizens in their own home towns. This book can help them to count their blessings and pray for more.
If youve found yourself saying, My testimony isnt very exciting. I grew up in a Christian home, then Growing Up Christian is just the thing to help you see how your Christian upbringing is an asset not a liability. The books wise teachings and compelling stories will affirm your faith, strengthen your resolve, and equip you for culture-shaping leadership.
Growing Up Christian is a great book. Karl Graustein gets it! He understands the pitfalls and dangers that track with the rich privilege of growing up in a Christian home. He addresses all the standard temptations; getting ensnared by sin, presuming oneself to be saved, craving for popularity. In winsome, kid friendly ways he turns the reader to knowing God, knowing the Bible, solid theology, fellowship with others. This book has a look and feel that young people will appreciate. Much of the teaching is found in engaging interactive text boxes that will make this book a small group leaders dream. I look forward to seeing this book used in the church I serve.
at1483Age: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Fantastic Text for High SchoolersMarch 1, 2011at1483Age: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Ive been a Sunday School teacher for over 20 years and have struggled finding texts that are Biblically Solid, Relevant to High Schoolers, and Focuses on Practical Application.
I've found that many "youth" books are geared to middle schoolers and miss the boat on what high school juniors and seniors are really going through.
This book is focused on the kids that have grown up in church all their lives and makes them realize there are benefits and dangers because of that. The book challenges young people to realize they are prone to 1) thinking they are Christian - when they arent even saved 2) taking God's grace for granted 3) living double lives.
It also encourages them to make personal convictions about what they believe.
High schoolers need to decide what they believe and what boundaries they'll set up before they enter the confusing and spiritually challenging world of college. This book helps them work through it. Definately recommended.
I also recommend the Seven Checkpoints by Andy Stanley..

We are home schoolers and don't deal with a lot of the peer pressure and boyfriend/girlfriend related topics discussed.
However, if your teen is not in our situation I think this book could be helpful. It is graphic in how it describes senareos teens face- which can be good and bad.
I recommend mom or dad reading it first then deciding if your teen would benefit from it.
