Don't check your brains at the door by by Josh McDowell and Bob Hostetler

This is a great book geared more for the teen audience that gives answers to questions that teens may have and provides solid information on the "whys" of the beliefs of Christianity in an easy to understand format. The chapters grouped in sections such as, "Myths about God", "Myths about Jesus", "Myths about the Bible", and "Myths about Life and Happiness". Each mini-topic is only two to three pages long, and ends with a list of "Brain Food" for the reader to digest which includes scripture references and questions to tie in the topic addressed. I thought that the authors did a great job of including most of the topics that young adults and teenagers may have questions about regarding their faith, and each topic was presented in a interesting and fun to read format. I especially appreciated that they put scripture references at the end of each passage to confirm in the reader that they are indeed basing the information off of scripture. I would recommend this book to any parent of an 11-18 year old to read together or separate as a tool to strenghthen a child's beliefs and faith. It would also be a great book for a group bible study!
I received this book from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255 : "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."
