There is a real shortage of really good Christian books written specifically for teenagers. As someone who has a teenage daughter and does youth ministry, if a new book comes out for them, I’m keen to read it.
A recent release is a short book by Jonny Pearse called Changing Lanes.
Using the imagery of Jesus’ description of two roads, one that’s wide and leads to destruction, and one that’s narrow and leads to God and eternal life, the question this book asks its teenage readers is “Which of the two roads am I on?” with the hope that those on the wide road will change lanes!
To help them do that, the seven chapters of the book take the teenager on a journey of discovery to find out the truth about religion, evidence, sin, hell, Jesus, forgiveness and Christianity.
I really like this book.
Each chapter is short, clear, uncompromising (especially the chapters on sin and hell), and accessible for teenagers, especially those who are currently on the wide road. There is also a seven week evangelistic DVD course which can be done in a youth group setting or individually online HERE.
I’m looking forward to running this course with the youth group I help to lead and to give out copies of the book at the end. Why not do the same?
Changing Lanes is available to buy HERE.
