How Should a Christian Live Book Review

What an awesome devotional book series for teens! "How Should a Christian Live" is the 3rd book in the series using scripture from 1-2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1-2 Thessalonians, 1-2 Timothy, Titus, and Philemon. The sections of each "lesson" really help to make the information stick and apply to everyday life. "GET-IT (help to understand difficult concepts); GRAB-IT (how does this look in your own life); HOLD-IT (how to maintain in everyday life); GIVE-IT (how does this affect others in your life); DEFINE-IT (in-depth look at key words); and LIVE-IT (presentation of ideas, questions, challenges to support each session's content)" (Booksneeze).

I really like that it can be used for independent study as well as small group study. It is long enough to be detailed, but not too long to lose the interest of the reader. The activities with each lesson keep it fun as well as the celebrity recordings on the included MP3- CD. I am excited to share this series with the youth in my home church.
