With enthusiasm and joy, they'll help teens and young adults overcome feelings of guilt, fear and doubt and embrace the truth that Christ has freed them.

The word If is a powerful little word. Some people are stuck in if only, trudging through lives marked with regret. But God wants us to live lives marked with possibilities, with the what if attitude that looks forward to the future with confidence. Why? Because the answer to "If God is for us, who can be against us?" is "No one." God is always on our side, every day, in every way.
Young people especially need to hear this life-changing message of hope and freedom from Mark Batterson and his son Parker. With his trademark enthusiasm and contagious joy, Batterson helps teens and young adults overcome those feelings of guilt, fear, and doubt that plague them and embrace the truth that in Christ there is no condemnation. Unpacking the promises of Romans 8, he shows young readers that they are more than conquerors--right now and forever. And because of that, the possibilities for their lives are limitless.
