Can’t get your teens to dust off old copies of My Utmost for His Highest? This devotional could help make that feather duster obsolete. Designed more like a magazine than a manual, Acquire the Fire presents devotionals like articles, with interviews, surveys, and plenty of scripture to boot.
Various sections emphasize living your faith, beating temptation, and igniting your prayer life. But the scattered layout makes it challenging to establish a daily reading routine or differentiate devotionals from the magazine’s many side features.
The optional discussion guide is a great resource to help leaders start group studies with their teens.
