Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This 30-day journal leads junior and senior highers to Devotion--following Jesus--with readings by Mike Yaconelli at his grittiest--Scripture passages that reveal both the inconsistency and the passion of disciples--and questions that push teenagers to see how, imperfect as they are, they can make a big difference for Christ in their world.

Synopsis:

A 30-day devotional journal for junior and senior highers--for small groups or private use

Discipleship means being like the Big Twelve disciples, right? But, says author Mike Yaconelli, when you read the Gospels and Acts at face value, the disciples weren't always on top of things. In fact, the disciples were clueless, selfish, erratic, inconsistent, and faithless at least half the time. But Jesus loved them and used them all the more for it. Yaconelli scrubs away centuries of

sentimental buildup and shows 21st century teens that there's hope for them, too.

This thirty-day journal takes teens on an adventure through thirty character traits that are all marks of a disciple, things like fear, boldness, fearlessness, laziness, weakness, sensitivity, brokenness, alienation, hunger, immaturity, strength, and preparedness. Each daily reading includes an event from Scripture, a pointed description of that day's disciple's trait, a teenager's first-person commentary, the obvious and not-so-obvious truth lesson, Scripture references for extra reading on the trait, and questions that invite kids to ponder and write their own application related to their experience.

Synopsis:

"Devotion" is appropriate for small group reflection and discussion as well as for private use.
