Perhaps no one knows how to touch the hearts and minds of young people as writer and radio broadcaster Jim Burns. These fifty fresh devotional readings cover many of the major issues of life and faith that students wrestle with today. Sexual purity, the pressure to compromise, family relationships, trusting God, servanthood, worry, fatigue, and daily surrender are just a few of the topics Burns explores. Scripture and personal application questions are integrated throughout, while historical and contemporary stories, quotes, profiles of courage, and even illustrations from children's literature help students relate these concepts to their lives. Youth leaders and parents will find this a tremendous resource for teaching, while young adults will enjoy the book for use in their personal quiet time.
