How do you get to know God? Where does he hang out? This book is a readable potted theology for youth covering the spirit's work, Christ's death and more through stories.
Are you looking for a book that will help you to dive head first into discovering who God is? Then this is the book for you! Patricia St. John has provided this great resource for youth that will help them to grow and learn more about seeking God and learning to find the answers in the Bible. I absolutely loved exploring God's Word through reading this book. I was impressed with the format of the book. The author did a great job in writing to a younger audience. The writings are easy to read and understand. Each chapter or section includes verses, prayers, and questions to think about. I like the fact that the author does not preach but instead teaches the youth to use the brains that God has blessed them with and to examine the Scriptures on their own to discover God's truth. This book addresses a ton of questions, with 46 chapters broken down into various categories such as Death and Beyond, Spiritual Growth, the Holy Spirit, etc. This book is sure to help the new believer as well as the veteran Christian find answers to the questions they may have about God. Truly an awesome book.-- Tricia Bleu, Teens 4 Jesus Library Website
