A Great Christmas Gift Idea for Tweens, Teens & College Students

by | Nov 8, 2017 | Book Reviews, Spiritual Health

In the same way that moms often ask for parenting book recommendations, teens love to ask their Christian counselors/mentors what devotional books they recommend. Josh McDowell’s #truth, 365 Devotions for Teens, Connecting Life and Faith is a great choice.

Why this particular devotional book?

Format. In addition to being organized into brief, daily readings, each month of readings shares a common theme. For example, each reading for the month of October is centered around the Truth about God’s Kingdom, each devotional in December pertains to the Truth about Christ’s Return, and so forth.

Content. Josh McDowell gets it. His entire ministry is about following youth and cultural trends. So, he knows the audience he’s writing to and he knows their world. But he doesn’t join that world just to connect with them. Rather, Josh knows how to give today’s youth the Truth in exactly the way they long to hear it. And with that credibility, he leads them into a much wider, more eternal perspective than they are used to hearing from the world.

 Who would enjoy this book?

  • Guys
  • Girls
  • Middle School Students
  • High School Students
  • College Students
  • Anyone bombarded with secular messages
  • Anyone looking to get started with daily Bible reading
  • Anyone who loves short daily devotional readings
