How to Reach Angry, Unmotivated Teens with Biblical Counsel
Get Outta My Face! is a very significant new book for approaching and helping an important age group, teenagers. It doesn't shy away from the "gritty realism" of dealing with them, but is loaded with a new and far reaching approach; one that is filled with true gospel hope.
Here's a fact. Angry, unmotivated, and disinterested teens, whether Christian or not, are confused, insecure, and often blind to everything except what they want right now. Their desires and actions have been corrupted and polluted by sin. That's why they have a problem.
Here's another fact. Angry, unmotivated, and disinterested teens, whether Christian or not, are made in the image of God. This means that beneath their corrupted desires and actions the image of God remains. That's the key to solving their problem.
Far from dismissing or sugar-coating sin, this approach opens wide the door to evangelizing the unsaved teen and to helping the Christian teen grow in holiness and wisdom. This book will teach you how to build a bridge to young adults on the basis of the ways in which their desires and actions reflect the image of God and the blessing of common grace.
