About the Author
As a young man, Josh McDowell considered himself an agnostic. He truly believed that Christianity was worthless. However, when challenged to intellectually examine the claims of Christianity, Josh discovered compelling and overwhelming evidence for the reliability of the Christian faith. After trusting in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, Josh’s life changed dramatically as he experienced the power of God’s love. After his conversion, Josh committed his life to telling a doubting world about the truth of Jesus Christ. After studying at Kellogg College, Josh completed his college degree at Wheaton College and then attended Talbot Theological Seminary, graduating magna cum laude with a Masters of Divinity. Working with Campus Crusade for Christ and founding the youth outreach, Josh McDowell Ministry, Josh has shared the gospel with more than 25 million people in 125 countries. He is the author or co-author of 147 books.

Certainly we must provide guidance for our children. There is no question about that. However, we must recognize that a lot of the youth rebellion is much like the general public's reaction to the hypocritical, aggressive imposition of the 'Christian' Right. It has caused many people, especially youth, to regard religious preaching as a hypocritical sham, especially when it includes condemnation of 'secular humanists' (most of whom are actually far more Christian). That's why religious hypocrites are largely responsible for our present situation. Besides that, we should always keep in mind that we must not indulge in 'the forbidden fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.' We must not play god. We must remember why Jesus said, Judge not, lest you be judged. That's why I must say that this work is mostly a biased and misguided attempt to further a right-wing political agenda in the guise of 'God's Word.'
I would highly recommend this book to be read by parents and teachers alike because it's very easy to read, interesting and relevant to today's problems in family (including Christian). This book reveals issues that parents think that their teenagers don't have problems with. And the reality is it could be closer than they think or even going on in their home without them realizing it. Thus, a friendly advice for parents and teachers of teenagers to pick up this book and learn from the experiences of others as shared by Josh McDowell.
