"Josh McDowell's Youth Devotions" is a daily, year-long devotional for teenagers. The authors used a tone and examples that teens will probably find engaging and even funny.
Each devotional was one page long, so they're quick to read. For each day, a short reading from the Bible was assigned. You needed to look it up yourself. Then a Bible verse was quoted, often from the assigned reading. Next, the main text was mostly a story or matching game that illustrated a point from that day's reading. A paragraph or two tied the Bible reading and the example together and stated the point clearly. The authors then suggested some things to reflect on and a prayer. They also sometimes suggested an activity that might help put the lesson into practice or remind you of the lesson.
Overall, I thought the points were good ones and that teenagers would be willing to do these devotionals. I'd recommend it.
Great for teens! The Christian worldview is no longer evident in our churches and families. Christian schools are closing all over New England and our children and teens are leaving the faith. Whatever I can do to challenge my child to be like Christ and to stand firm in the faith, I am going to do. Josh McDowell's message challenges thinking.
