In one volume is 145 brief devotions written by teens, encouraging their brothers and sisters in Christ to stay the course. Collected by the founders of Teen Mania, these readings in Teen to Teen
were selected for their edgy subjects and powerful messages. The book is a topical devotional with Scripture verses and reflections running the gamut of teen issues. There is an authenticity to the readings stemming from the experiences of the authors.
Connecting topics to relevant Scripture, the readings are personal, straight-forward and thought provoking. They do not skirt around difficult subjects but face them head on, including sexual purity, family breakup, controlled substances, manhood, fatherlessness, identity development etc.
Students will find each devo engaging and will be likely to develop a daily ritual of reading and reflection as a solid foundation to build on later. The books are inexpensive enough to put in the hands of an entire youth group and may be used as part of a discipleship retreat to help them develop an ongoing devotional habit.
