Connecting with Your Teen

Get Your Teenager Talking by Jonathan McKee

Veteran youth expert Jonathan McKee presents 180 creative discussion starters to help teens open up about issues that matter. And unique to this book, he provides tips for interpreting their responses and follow-up questions. From light-hearted to more serious, these conversation springboards will get even the most reluctant teen to talk about friends, school, values, struggles, and much more. Perfect for anyone who wants to make a teen feel noticed and heard.

Teenology by Jim Burns

Raising a teen is not an easy job. The challenges parents face can be overwhelming—“What happened to my sweet-tempered kid?” “How do I help her make better choices” “I’m afraid my teen is going to walk away from his faith.” “How do I teach my teen to stay pure?” “Is this teen behavior normal?” In Teenology, author Jim Burns covers all these issues and more. His no-holds-barred approach tackles even the most sensitive topics, providing parents with the answers and advice they need to raise their teens to become responsible adults. An invaluable section on common problems and solutions addresses everything from curfew to bullying to pornography and beyond. Don’t overlook this must-have resource!

 

Raising Responsible Teens in the Digital World by Brian Housman

Brian Housman helps parents become a greater influence in their teen’s world, revealing which values motivate teens and offering practical ideas on how families can engage the world through service and love.

 

The Jesus Survey by Mike Nappa

Who do Christian teens say Jesus is and what does he mean in their lives? The answers might surprise you. In The Jesus Survey, Mike Nappa shares the groundbreaking results of a nationwide survey of Christian teenagers from sixteen different denominations. He shares his discoveries of how core beliefs about Jesus–and the Holy Spirit, prayer, evangelism, and more–influence the way a teen actually experiences God personally and offers ideas for helping teens overcome faulty perceptions. Pastors, youth pastors, parents, and educators will find in The Jesus Survey both an enlightening and invaluable tool for understanding the faith of teens around them and a guide for helping teens nurture an authentic, satisfying, and vibrant relationship with Christ.

A Closer Look at The Crossway Bundle

Crossway Bundle

Add 100 books to your library right now. Get The Crossway Bundle for $499.97.

One of the best reasons to get The Crossway Bundle is that we packed superior content into every nook and cranny. Every title is useful for different aspects of life—in or outside of ministry. The 100 books in the bundle can equip you to do anything from ministering to people with disabilities, understanding the Bible better, and approaching difficult social issues.

Here are three titles in the bundle from my personal 2014–2015 reading list:

1. Surprised by Grace by Tullian Tchividjian

Jonah’s name isn’t new to anyone, but this fresh unfolding of his story seeks to recapture the staggering effect it had on those who first encountered it centuries ago. In a powerful journey through unforgettable events and imagery, Surprised by Grace reveals how relentlessly God pursues rebels (a category that ultimately includes everyone), though he has every right and plenty of reasons to give up on us all.

2. Church History: A Crash Course by Christopher Catherwood

In this concise, accessible guide, author Christopher Catherwood takes his readers through the history of the faith, revealing Christianity’s unique journey from its birth to the global Evangelical Church we know today. Church History is the perfect place to start for anyone who wants to know where to begin this quest for knowledge. Discover more about the lives of men and women from the past to learn how to live wisely in the present.

3. Art as Spiritual Perception by multiple authors

This diverse collection of 15 essays will encourage and inspire those who love art and love God. Making a critical contribution to the field of art history, this reader covers everything from sixth-century icons to contemporary art from a Christian perspective. Written by experts around the country—from Fuller Theological Seminary to the Smithsonian—this book reflects the work of noted scholars, most especially John Walford and Hans Rookmaaker, as well as the richness of the history of Christianity and the visual arts.

Whether you’re a biblical scholar looking for titles to equip you in ministry or someone who wants to strengthen your theological background, this bundle is for you. We can always learn more about grace, further our knowledge of how the church grew, and expand our appreciation of Christian art.

The Crossway Bundle is big. Explore its diverse titles, and see what adding 100 books to your digital library can do for you. The bundle ends Friday, so get yours soon, before this deal is gone forever!
