Summary: 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 this book, the authors 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.

What Others Say About This Book:

“With much attention paid to converts, teens who grow up in the church sometimes feel like second-class citizens in their own home towns. This book can help them to count their blessings and pray for more.”

—Marvin Olasky

“Karl’s love for God’s word and for young adults is evident on every page. He wants to see them transformed by Jesus Christ’s finished work on the cross—not merely living off the religion of their dads and moms.”

—Joshua Harris
