Jesus in Your Backpack: A Teen's Guide to Spiritual Wisdomby William R. Grimbol
Synopses & Reviews
Jesus in Your Backpack is based on the belief that spirituality is not the result of indoctrination, but of inspiration. This book shows teens how they can connect with Jesus as a teacher, role model, sage, and spiritual seeker. Free of dogma and doctrine, Jesus in Your Backpack does not impose Jesus as a savior, nor preach the absolute, heaven-or-hell rules of conservative Christianity. The author freely acknowledges both fact and myth while telling the story of Jesus's life and crucifixion. Jesus in Your Backpack offers teens guidance from a man who is passionate about peace, justice and creating genuine hope rooted in unconditional love. IHis is wisdom transforms lives by encouraging teenagers to be fully human while discovering heaven in the here and now.
