As children enter the teenage years they begin to search for the core of their beliefs and why they believe. This quest continues thorugh college as they explore who they are. Bob Hostetler, a pastor, speaker and author, has co-written Don’t Check Your Brains At the Door with Josh McDowell.
Hostetler has written fiction and is a sought-after speaker. His Living Inspired podcast is a prime example of why. Living Inspired is also available via iTunes for free.
I have witnessed my own children seeking their belief and Hostetler is the perfect author for those who have accepted Jesus and “Christianity”. The book reads like “Mythbuster’s”; Hostetler presents the myth of Christianity and then through Scripture busts the myth. The chapters explore Myths About God, Myths About Jesus, Myths About the Bible, Myths About the Resurrection, Myths About Religion and Christianity, and Myst’s about Life and Happiness.
Hostetler writes with humor in exploration with titles like “The Luke Skywalker God, Wimpy Jesus, The Bible, and the Telephone Game and more. It’s teenagers’ perspective with powerful lessons that strengthen faith.
Long ago, in Miami, Florida, I was an opinionated young woman who was counseled against reading books that were against my faith. I retorted, “Why wouldn’t I read these books? Those people who mock my faith or want to explore it will read these books and I’d like to say, “Yes. I read that too and found it to be _____, however, I believe _______” I wanted to explore my own belief, challenge it and be ready to give the answer just as told in 1 Peter 3:15.
To celebrate the release of their new book, Josh McDowell and Bob Hostetler have teamed up with their publisher, Thomas Nelson, to give away a brand new KINDLE!
Don’t Check Your Brains At the Door answers many of the faith-related questions Christian youth face. It challenges young readers to test gospel truths found in the Bible so they can learn to give an answer for their faith as they mature into thinking adults. A great resource for teens and college-age. Read the reviews here.
