Don't Check Your Brains At The Door - Kindle Giveaway

Don't Check Your Brains at the Door answers many of the faith-related questions Christian youth face. It challenges young readers to test gospel truths found in the Bible so they can learn to give an answer for their faith as they mature into thinking adults.

“Seven in 10 Protestants ages 18 to 30—both evangelical and mainline—who went to church regularly in high school said they quit attending by age 23, according to the survey by LifeWay Research.” (USA Today)

Don’t Check Your Brains at the Door gives teens answers that make sense, even for the toughest of questions. Internationally known defender of the faith Josh McDowell and co-author Bob Hostetler offer clarity laced with humor to expose common myths about God, the Bible, religion, and life to show how Christianity stands up to the test of fact and reason. Teens will be better equipped to stick with their faith as they begin to understand why they believe and why it’s important to make a lifetime commitment to Christ and the church.

Book Review

I have a teenage son.     He is at the stage where he is beginning to cement in his own mind all of the things that we have been teaching him since he a baby.     That requires questions and searching.      "Don't Check Your Brains at the Door" is written in a language and style that is perfect for teens like my son.     Each section is written with their attention span in mind.    While each chapter is short and to the point, it isn't stingy on quality and truth.    The end of each chapter presents "brain food" that challenges teens to dig deep into the Bible for the only place where you can find complete truth:  the Bible.  

There is a lot of information being thrown at my sons each day.    Being able to cipher through all of it requires discernment.   Discernment is a even greater skill.     It is why our kids don't need to check their brains at the door.   It is why reading this book can give them such an advantage as they walk out into the great big world each day.

Kids leaving the church is prevalent for lots of reasons. Mine were raised with Christian values and made lots of choices that were not in line with those values. My brother won't darken the church because he saw too much hypocrisy among the teens in the youth group, yet he is more like Christ than a lot of "Christians" I know.
