Title: ALL IN
Authors: Mark Batterson and Parker Batterson
Publisher: Zondervan
March 2014
ISBN:  978-0310744696
Genre: Nonfiction / Teen

Halfway is no way to live. Quit holding back. Quit holding out. It's time to go all in and all out for God.

The good news is this: If you don't hold out on God, God won't hold out on you. If you give everything you have to follow Jesus, you'll receive amazing spiritual rewards. But this reality also comes with a deeper truth: Nothing belongs to you. Not even you.

In All In: Student Edition, Mark and Parker Batterson explore what going all in can mean for your life, sharing unique illustrations and unforgettable stories, as well as compelling accounts of biblical characters. Throughout, they demonstrate the amazing things that can happen when you surrender to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

Mark Batterson writes: 'When did we start believing that God wants to send us to safe places to do easy things? Jesus didn't die to keep us safe. He died to make us dangerous.'

In ALL IN the authors encourage teens to surrender to the Lord, the leadership of Him, and you can have a totally different life. The chapters are short, easy to read, and encouraging teens to “go all in and all out” for God.

It includes Bible characters’ stories who went all in for God, stories of real-life missionaries, and other people. I really liked the encouragement in this book. Get up, brush yourself off, and keep going! Great book for teens.

Your school is your mission field. Live for God. Make a difference.

Title: GODS AT WAR
Author: Kyle Idleman
Publisher: Zondervan
January 2014
ISBN:  978-0310742531
Genre: Nonfiction / Teen

The next step in becoming a completely committed follower of Jesus

In this student edition of gods at war, Kyle Idleman, bestselling author of not a fan, helps us recognize there are false gods at war within each of us, and they battle for the place of glory and control in our lives. What keeps us from truly following Jesus Christ is that our hearts are pursuing something or someone else like money or popularity. While these pursuits may not be the 'graven images' of old, they are in fact modern day idols. Behind the sin you're struggling with, the fear you're dealing with, the lack of purpose you're living with is a false god that is winning the war for your heart.

In GODS AT WAR the author encourage teens to surrender to the Lord and give up the gods of this world, such as the god of the quick fix, the god of sex, the god of entertainment, the god of appearance, the god of materialism and more.

The book starts with an introduction that talks about an interviewer talking to teens about the ten commandments. Do you know all of them?  Most of the teens talked with didn’t. They knew more about the ingredients of a Big Mac than they did. One even listed Freedom of Speech as a ten commandment.

Idolatry is one commandment we all break.  Whether we think we do or not.  What is more important than studying God’s word or witnessing, or even going to church?  Watching your favorite sport team? Your friends?  That new to-die-for outfit?  That hot girl or boy you like? It can be any number of things.

In GODS AT WAR you are encouraged to give up your gods and turn it all over to God.

$12.99. 208 pages. 5 stars.

I have a daughter who is 17 and a son that is 13. I do believe both would benefit from this. Both have turned their hearts over to God, but with all the temptations out there I look for anything that will help them stay on the right path. Thank you for sharing.
