It would be useful for a Sunday school class as well.

I have not yet had a chance to read this book completely; it looks like one that will be good for my teen daughters to work through as they "own" their own faith.
Pen Name
Growing Up Christian is a book I would unhesitatingly recommend to any and all Christian parents and teens.

Format: Paperback
Growing up Christian is not as easy a task as one might think. There are dangers and temptations unique to growing up within a Christian family and within the church and sadly these difficulties are often downplayed or misunderstood by those who have been converted later in life. Growing Up Christian seeks examine these issues, which, as a person who grew up in a Christian home (ie a "church kid"), are near and dear to my heart. The book is targetted primarily at church kids, though their parents would do well to read the book with them. The author, Karl Graustein, is a church kid himself and is now a principal at a Christian school, so is intimately aware of the issues at stake.

The book is divided into three sections. The first lays out the blessings and the dangers of growing up in a Christian family. "Growing up in a Christian home is a wonderful privilege. We have been given so much: godly parents, training in the Word of God, friends from Christian homes, support from a Christian church community, and most importantly an opportunity to know God at a young age. Throughout our lives, we are repeatedly taught about the love of God, his plan of salvation, ways to recognize and resist sin, and living for the glory of God" (page 21). He goes on to recount other benefits of being raised in a Christian environment, pointing out that while we are given so much we are also protected from so many dangers.

"Church kids face some unique challenges...Though surrounded by the things of God, we can still be drawn to sin and live double lives. We can easily assume that we are saved even if we are not; or we may be driven by a desire to be popular more than a desire to live according to biblical values.

For those who grew up in the "culture" of Christianity, this is an excellent book to awaken us to the numbness many of us may currently experience in our relationship with our Creator God. It is written to the adolescent primarily, with short (but relevant and powerful) stories about situations they (and we who are older) may be facing today. This is then followed up with some sound teaching on various subjects, finishing each chapter with some mental checklists for discussion and thought.

For parents, it allows us to have our eyes and ears open to what our children may be experiencing as young people "growing up Christian"--the dangers of knowing all the information, yet not having a heart soft towards the LORD; of becoming conditioned to the voices of Truth and having a wandering eye and ear towards the world and its voice of lies.

This is an excellent book to read with your young adolescent (or pre-teen) to help them realize who they are and where they live currently and to see the pitfalls that potentially lie ahead of them if they choose to walk in the way of this world versus the Way of the LORD.

I've been giving it out to anyone who "grew up Christian" or have children who are "growing up Christian".

Book was sold as used and received in excellent condition with only a very minor bent corner on bottom front cover. I've received new books with more shipping damage than that!!!
I have not yet had a chance to read this book completely; it looks like one that will be good for my teen daughters to work through as they "own" their own faith.
