Growing Up Christian: Have You Taken Ownership of Your Relationship With God?
Growing Up Christian is a great book. Karl Graustein gets it! He understands the pitfalls and dangers that track with the rich privilege of growing up in a Christian home. He addresses all the standard temptations; getting ensnared by sin, presuming oneself to be saved, craving for popularity. In winsome, "kid friendly" ways he turns the reader to knowing God, knowing the Bible, solid theology, fellowship with others. This book has a look and feel that young people will appreciate. Much of the teaching is found in engaging interactive text boxes that will make this book a small group leader's dream. I look forward to seeing this book used in the church I serve.See All

Many teens are active in church youth programs, yet drop out of church later in life and never return. Other young adults rest on the merits of their parents" faith without ever experiencing their own relationship with Jesus Christ. In Growing Up Christian, Karl Graustein and Mark Jacobsen seek to help teenagers who have grown up in Christian homes by reminding them of the blessings of growing up in a Christian home, warning them of some of the dangers they face, providing practical suggestions for avoiding these dangers, and urging them to think and live in a way that pleases God.
