Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In their bestselling Taste Berries books, the Youngs utilized the power of stories to connect with teenagers. Their latest offering gathers such stories together in the last section, a change that will greatly reduce the readability of the book, which is otherwise a rather didactic series of questions and answers about Christianity. If the stories had been interwoven with the "answer" content, the result would have been much more effective. The first section of the book, Who is God (and Why Does It Matter)?, offers background material about the Bible and the Christian faith. It is hard to imagine that teenagers with burning questions will find much to engage them in these heavy, historically and theologically driven chapters. Other sections of the book (How is God a Part of My Everyday Life?) are more interesting and relevant to adolescents. While some social issues, like pornography, are given a thorough discussion, other topics, such as "cussing," are addressed too simplistically or dodged altogether. Personal reflection questions at the end of each chapter attempt to bring lessons home to young readers. Although the book contains some material teens would find helpful, the lack of a topical index means that such nuggets may be difficult to find. Nor is it likely that most teens will wade through the book's almost 400 pages.

From the Back Cover

A Teen's Guide to Christian Living takes a refreshing look at real faith in a real God and how it sustains the younger believer through the ups and downs of life. Whether you are a teenager dealing with the pain and fear of divorced parents, broken or abusive relationships, serious illness, life-changing choices or simply with the pressures of everyday living (family life, friends, school, job and career choices), you will find in these pages comfort, encouragement, direction and an anchor to keep you on solid ground. All teens, from those who have never set foot inside a church to those who cut their teeth on Bible stories, will gain a deeper understanding of the Christian faith and learn answers these questions:

Who is God and why should I believe in Him?
What does God of expect me and how will I discover this?
How well does God know me, and does He love me, no matter what is in my past or in spite of the things I've said and done?
Does God have a plan for me? Specifically, does He care who my friends are or what kind of work I do? Does He have someone in mind for me to love?
Is there a "best" way to pray, and how does prayer make a difference?
Does God watch over my family-even if one or more family member doesn't believe in God?
Does loving God mean I can't go to parties, kiss or flirt?
Does loving God mean I can only associate with those of my own religious beliefs?
How can I "serve" and follow God and still be a "regular" teen with "regular" friends and a "regular" life?
How can I have the courage to live my faith every day, in every way?

A particular strength of this book lies in the stories by real teens that demonstrate how they have learned to rely on God during a moment of truth in their lives. These stories of real-life courage and overcoming will inspire you and give you hope to face life's challenges. Each chapter teaches a particular "Christian" topic and closes with thought-provoking questions to help teen readers examine their own lives and put Christian principles into practice.

Format: Paperback
Christian youth have many questions - they have questions about faith, about God, about being a Christian. They have many questions when tough times hit as do any of us. So where does a teen turn when they begin having questions? Who do they ask when so many adults have no clue how to talk with youth? The authors of this book have done an excellent job in pulling together the information and resources to answer the questions addressed - rather than your typical "does God exist" types of questions this book had questions like "How do I relate to people of other faiths?" and "Who is God and what is He like?" The personal reflection questions at the end of each chapter were great - very valuable questions intended to encourage thinking and help them understand what they read in relation to their own life. The end of the book contained amazing testimonies and stories from real life teens - a further emphasis of the message of the book alive and well in real life. This is a book any Christian can relate to - youth or adult. It contains the answers to the questions you hear from youth daily. Educate yourself first and then share this book with all the youth you know. It is well worth the time to read.

I have read most of the Taste Berries for Teen books, and really liked them. This book has the same great stories, but is also very different. I guess some people wanted it to be more like the Taste Berry books, but how could it be? I want somebody who knows a whole lot more about life and God than I do telling me how to live the Christian walk. To me, the best section is how to bring God into all aspects of your daily living. I have questions about life. No book I've seen yet has answered my questions as well as this one does. I feel I understand what it means to be a Christian better now.

This book is good for those who don't know much about their faith, or need more explaination from others. I enjoyed the book but I already knew much of it. It did explain some things better to me. If they were to make another book about faith, I hope it would go more in depth on the subjects they only seemed to touch in this book, and ask/talk about more thought provoking questions. I recommend this book to all teens in need of a good spiritual book. (And to those who said this book is to long, I believe that your religion is not something that you can write simply if you want it to make any sense to you... that is why this book is this way, long but each subject is to the point.)

Format: Paperback
A Teen's Guide To Christian Living: Practical Answers To Tough Questions About God And Faith is a soundly written and expertly presented Christian guide offering unambiguous answers to such commonplace conundrums as "Who is God, and what does He expect of me?" and "Does God have a plan for my life, and how am I to discover it?" A devout and informative discourse about exploring and better understanding one's relationship to Christ, A Teen's Guide To Christian Living is a magnanimous and recommended read for faithful Christians from 12 to 20.
