Get Your Story Straight: A Teen’s Guide to Learning and Living the Gospel

#ad
New Growth Press #ad - Forged out of one bible study leader’s ongoing quest to see the gospel penetrate the hearts of the teenagers in her small group, Get Your Story Straight builds a year’s worth of personal reading and interactive exercises squarely upon the gospel. Forged out of one bible study leader’s 7-year quest to see the gospel penetrate the hearts of the teenagers in her small group.

Guides teens to spend a week in the same Bible passage—exploring, asking and answering questions, and journaling—to establish the habit of interacting carefully with Scripture and making life applications. This one-of-a-kind devotional book rescues teens from the selfie culture, inviting them to live with Jesus in his gospel story—where they can know that their sins are forgiven, their future is assured, and their lives have meaning.

Everyone has a story, find meaning, but not everyone has their story straight—and teenagers are no exception! Today’s selfie culture fuels ongoing confusion about identity and purpose, and teens are left to assume that they are ultimately responsible to make life work, and hope for the best when they mess up.

Get Your Story Straight: A Teen's Guide to Learning and Living the Gospel #ad - Starts with creation and works outward, so teens not only see the unfolding story of Christ, but also why it matters in their lives and how it impacts what they are experiencing • Designed for individual devotional use, but could be helpfully used in a small group discussion guided by a mentor. Seven years in the making, get your story straight is a unique, 52-week devotional book to help teens and young adults discover the incredible news that God really is the hero of their story.

When it’s all about you, it’s also all up to you. While this yearlong study is designed for individual devotional use, it would work particularly well for small group discussion led by a mentor.

Confronting Christianity: 12 Hard Questions for the World's Largest Religion

#ad
Crossway Books #ad - Christianity is the most widespread global belief system, and promises to remain so well into the future. Channeling state-of-the-art research, personal stories, and careful biblical study, Confronting Christianity explores 12 questions that keep many of us from considering faith in Christ. But for many educated westerners, biblical Christianity is a dangerous idea―challenging some of their deepest beliefs.

Religion’s decline in the modern world turns out to be a myth. Look more closely, the success of science, the desire for diversity, McLaughlin argues, and the reality of suffering, the complexity of sexuality, and other seeming roadblocks to faith become signposts. Jesus becomes not a relic from the ancient world, but our modern world’s best hope.
