Item description for Creating a Christian Lifestyle: (Student Text) (Companions for the journey) by Carl Koch...
Overview The senior year of high school is an especially significant time for young men and women who are shaping their goals and hopes for the future. Creating a Christian Lifestyle is a comprehensive course that addresses issues relevant to all states of life from a Christian perspective, treating them as foundational to any examination of single life, marriage, religious life, and ordained ministry. The structure of this student text is somewhat different from most books about lifestyles that are intended for use with seniors. Five chapters (chapters 11-15) are devoted to the specific lifestyle paths, but the larger portion of the book focuses on life themes that are common to all of these paths: identity and autonomy, love, communication, sexuality, friendship, creativity and learning, work, money and possessions, and suffering and healing. Early in each chapter are thought-provoking stories, poems, or examples that can lead students into a discussion of the topic that follows. Engaging activities that invite reflection, discussion, and journal writing are interspersed throughout the margins of the student text. The full-color lively design and over fifty outstanding, original artworks by students help stimulate students' interest and illustrate the content.

Creating a Christian Lifestyle Jul 22, 2005
I am using this book for a class I'm teaching, and find it very real and human. I am teaching a young lady who is going into her senior year, and although it is geared towards this age group, I find it a little young.
great teachable text for seniors in h.s. May 6, 2000
I have used this text with high school seniors. It is superb, covering the key issues that seniors face in trying to shape a Christian lifestyle. The book is filled with wonderful anecdotes and hard-won wisdom.The teaching manual is equally superb.I have heard that the publisher is updating this book; I hope they leave it pretty much as is because it's terrific.
