9780757301018: A Teen's Guide to Christian Living: Practical Answers to Tough Questions About God and Faith

A Teen's Guide to Christian Living takes a refreshing look at real faith in God and how it sustains the younger believer through the ups and downs of life. As teens cope with the pain and fear of divorced parents, broken or abusive relationships, illness, or simply with the pressures of everyday living, this book will help to keep them on solid ground and gain a deeper understanding of their faith through answers to questions like:

  • How well does God know me? Does He love me in spite of things I've said and done?
  • Is there a best way to pray? How does prayer make a difference?
  • Does God watch over my family even if they don't all believe in Him?
  • Does loving God mean I can't go to parties, kiss or flirt?
  • Should I only associate with people who believe what I believe?
  • Can I still be a regular teen with regular friends and a regular life?

A particular strength of this book lies in stories by teens who share how they learned to rely on God during a moment of truth in their lives-stories that will inspire other teens to surmount life's challenges. Each chapter teaches a particular topic and closes with thought-provoking questions that will help teens examine their lives and put Christian principles into practice.

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.
