A Great GUIDE Aug 17, 2009
As with ANY book, it should simply be a guide, not an exhaustive resource on EVERY subject in which you agree with everything the author says. This books target is more closely for the Middle School or young high school student. It definitely targets believers so if you are not a Christian then you probably won't get the context of what the authors are talking about. Yes, there ARE some statements made that are on the extreme but they at least err on the side of being cautious. There are A LOT of submission from teens themselves who have A LOT to say about their OWN experiences and the bauty of it is that not all of the statements are FROM believing teens. The book is one in a series called "Countdown To Adolescence" and with that in mind, you can understand why it may seem juvenile.
As a side note I used this book to deliver a series of messages to my youth group called SIX things every teen should know and their parents are afraid to talk about and it seemed to go over well. We have a lot of non believing students who had never heard some of that information before because their parents do not communicate truths into their lives. (Thanks for reading and understand that this is just my opinion and should be respected as such.)
Awful-seems too subjective Jul 2, 2009
I received this book from either my mom or my aunt who's quite religious. The authors seem very close-minded. It's a book for someone who is fanatically religious and some of the statements made in the book are a bit ridiculous, mentioning that movies like Harry Potter and Astrology is evil. Also, it's very discriminating against gays, the book gives the idea of homosexuality being unacceptable. There's also a typo on page 165 saying "You many even feel proud of your new hairy look." It had a few good points but overall it was so very one-sided. I didn't like it at all.
