Growing Up Christian
Have you Taken Ownership of your Relationship with God?
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 remarkable blessings God has put in their path, 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.
“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, editor of World Magazine
“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, former pastor of Covenant Life Church, Gaithersburg, Maryland
“Karl Graustein gets it! He understands the pitfalls and dangers that track with the 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. This book has a look and feel that young people will appreciate.”
—Tedd Tripp, author of Shepherding a Child’s Heart and Instructing A Child’s Heart
