Gary Chapman, the New York Times #1 bestselling author of The 5 Love Languages®, and Clarence Shuler met when Clarence was still a teen. Gary mentored Clarence and helped him make wise decisions during his tumultuous teen years. Decades later, the two are still close friends and both lead powerful ministries that help people all around the world live better, more godly lives.

In Choose Greatness, they look at 11 important choices every young man faces, and talk through how he can choose wisely and thereby choose greatness. Full of rich wisdom, down-to-earth writing, and compassionate insight, this book is perfect for a teen to read on their own or (even better) with a mentoring adult.
Help the teens in your life choose greatness today.
