Written in a brisk style, including numerous funny anecdotes, culture clips from history and literature and current pop culture, this book has it all. The authors present a poignant summary of the spiritual condition (apathy, anger, fear) that envelopes most young people. The book helps young readers to see how they have been responding to Christ, which then determines how they live out their faith. They will ultimately choose to cave in and fall away from their faith, or they will huddle together with other believers in an attempt at self-presentation. OR as the authors show, young people can do as the Bible says, and be 'in the world but not of the world.' If they live this way, their faith will make an impact on other young people who are desperate to know God, (or to reconnect with Him after a season away). Funny,honest,and well-informed - the authors provide much food for thought - as well as practical suggestions for action. Worthwhile read.

Format: Paperback
This book caught me by surprise. Firstly, it is written for young people and I am not young. Very not young! In truth, I only read it to check it out as a possible gift for some upcoming high school and college graduates I know. I planned to skim it, not really devote a lot of time to it since I barely have time to read the stack of books waiting for me now! But no matter how much I tried to skitter through it, I kept finding myself immersed in and carried away by the stories, the content and the surprising wisdom of the 20-something authors.
First of all I loved the concept of the colliding worlds which I took to mean world views. So many young people grow up with a world view they absorb and adopt from their parents, friends and pop culture. Most of them don't even know they have a world view, they just "think a certain way about stuff" and don't really question those thoughts. But when they leave home for college, they are suddenly forced to take a look at what they believe and why they believe it. That is where the authors displayed their first stroke of brilliance by using the metaphors of Cave Dwellers, Cave-ins or Colliders to describe how young people typically react to the outside forces that shake their world. Cave dwellers simply hide out in Christian community -- not good. Cave-ins compromise or reject what they once claimed to believe and go with the flow. But Colliders stand their ground because they know God, know what they believe and are willing to be counted as one of His.
The book is loaded with laugh-out-loud stories written with a flair (and drama -- even melodrama!) that young people love. My 23 year-old son and 30-ish daughters all howled out loud many times as they read this book.

I was very pleased as a mother to see my 12/13 year old son so joyfully dive into a book, especially one of this purpose. The applications to every day life are practical as well as entertaining for kids. The spiritual insight is very well conveyed for a book addressing a youth audience.

Format: Paperback
This is a well-written, intelligent book using a good mix of historical figures, pop culture examples, and comical personal anecdotes. The Blackaby's speak with the wisdom of men a good bit older than themselves. It speaks to teens and twenty somethings (the truth is good for everyone, but the illustrations shoot towards that demographic) about what it means to be a believer in today's world in a way that "collides" rather than "caving in" or "cave dwelling". The book is challenging without condemning. I found the book to be enjoyable to read and I will recommend it to any who I think will listen.
