Item description for Raising a Modern-Day Joseph: A Timeless Strategy for Growing Great Kids by Larry Fowler...
Overview This very test was given to the Old Testament Joseph, who passed with flying colors! Yet it seems that today's youth are ill-equipped to endure a faithless culture. Worse, research shows that young people are abandoning the church in record numbers. So how can we forge sons and daughters of faith and fortitude? The vital answers are found in the story of Joseph.
Imagine this scenario for a typical teenager in your church: He's separated from his family and sent to live in a hedonistic, no-holds-barred culture. He's stripped of his spiritual support, left alone, and treated unfairly. Then, at his most vulnerable point, his ego is stoked with power and success. Throughout this rollercoaster ride, would he continue to serve God?
This very test was given to the Old Testament Joseph, whose faith remained rock solid. Yet it seems that our youth are ill-equipped to face the moral vacuum in today's culture. Worse, research shows that when young people leave home, many also leave the church. So how can we forge sons and daughters of faith and fortitude?
The vital answers are found in the story of Joseph. Drawing from this timeless narrative, author Larry Fowler offers a biblical plan for building teens who will love and serve Jesus Christ. Biblically based and up-to-the-minute relevant, "Raising a Modern-Day Joseph "is an essential guide to raising a generation that can pass life's tests with flying colors.
