King David and Solomon knew a thing or two about God - in fact, what they wrote still applies to teenagers today! And, it's no secret that teenagers learn more from conversing among themselves than from having somebody talk at them. High School TalkSheets contains 50 discussion starters on topics of perennial relevance and high interest to teenagers such as: trusting God, freedom from fear, staying spiritually healthy, dealing with evil in the world, sharing Christ with others, and many more! Designed in one-page reproducible handouts, they can be used to enhance an existing lesson (as each TalkSheet is identified by topic) or become an entire lesson in themselves. The perfect small-group discussion-starting resource for youth meetings, small groups and cell groups, Sunday school, and camps and retreats.
These updated discussion starters based on the wisdom books of the Old Testament can stand alone or lead into a full-blown Bible study with help from the leaders accompanying instructions. Includes Bible references, Internet resources, and other suggested further activities.

'This resource is a must-have for every youth worker... One of the best features is the ability to edit the Talksheets, enabling the users to delete a question they don' t want or add something specific to their group. The program is very user-friendly, so even those who are computer illiterate should find it easy to use. It's well worth the cost, a resource you' ll find yourself coming back to week after week.'
