- Review by Shelby
I received this book for free from it's publisher through booklookbloggers.com for my honest review. I got this book because I saw it advertized on the back of a bus. When I googled the book I found out that it is written by a pastor (Judah Smith) who is local to my area. I was very impressed with the powerful representation of our Lord in such a simplistic, yet impressively impacting way. This book is aimed towards pre-teens & teenagers. However, it would also suit a new believer of any age. I volunteer at a prison ministry and am donating this book, as it is an excellent resource for any prison ministry. If you know a young person searching for truth, doubting their faith, struggling with low self-esteem, or learning who they are in Christ, this book is an invaluable resource to assure their value to the King who died in their place so they could have life. Judah Smith really has a gift for preaching to and reaching into the hearts of young people. This book though it talks about Jesus, still reflects the sincere love for youth Judah Smith has. Although I have been a believer my whole life, this book still touched my heart and reminded me of just how much Christ loves us. Throughout the book Judah Smith uses powerful messages, humor, side bars, and discussion questions keeping the reader engaged and thinking about what knowing Jesus means for them as an individual, and making a great book for youth group and Bible study. I highly recommend this book to anyone that has kids, works in ministry, or wants to reflect on what it means to follow Jesus. (Posted on 4/26/2015)
