Overview

Parents are the greatest influence on teenage faith.

Developed as a companion to Kenda Creasy Dean's Almost Christian - Christianity Today's 2011 Book of the Year - this resource summarizes Dean's response to the National Study on Youth and Religion and offers readers a chance to reflect on how the church and parents can address the findings of the study with their own children.

Raising Teenagers in an Almost Christian World is perfect for small group studies, classes, or parents at home.

Lesson topics include:

  • Becoming Christian-ish
  • Faith that Bears Fruit
  • Passing on the Faith
  • Testify by Word and Action
  • Transformation through Disorientation
  • Hope for Tomorrow

Each lesson is followed with four practical resources to help parents address each week?s topic in their own family in a variety of ways:

  • Conversation Starters
  • Tradition Builders
  • Disorienting Dilemmas
  • Experiencing Together

In a world where the church and parents are having a difficult time passing on the Christian faith to young people, we pray this study will encourage families to embark on journeys to know and love God.
