Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Joshua Harris
As a ‘church kid’ myself, I know the dangers that accompany being so familiar with the things of God that you take them for granted. . . . [this] book is one that can shake teenagers and parents out of a false sense of safety and ignite a much-needed spiritual passion.
Ken Smitherman
Growing Up Christian will provide a shot of encouragement to those uncounted teens who have grown up immersed in Christianity.
Marvin Olasky
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.
Jeff Myers
If you’ve found yourself saying, ‘My testimony isn’t very exciting. I grew up in a Christian home,’’ then Growing Up Christian is just the thing to help you see how your Christian upbringing is an asset not a liability. The book’s wise teachings and compelling stories will affirm your faith, strengthen your resolve, and equip you for culture-shaping leadership.
Tedd Tripp
Growing Up Christian is a great book. Karl Graustein gets it! He understands the pitfalls and dangers that track with the rich 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. In winsome, “kid friendly” ways he turns the reader to knowing God, knowing the Bible, solid theology, fellowship with others. This book has a look and feel that young people will appreciate. Much of the teaching is found in engaging interactive text boxes that will make this book a small group leader’s dream. I look forward to seeing this book used in the church I serve.
