True Identity, by John C. Majors
All teens wrestle with the question “Who am I?” and wonder, What makes me special?
Though these questions linger for life, they are most intense in the teen years, where confusion, awkwardness, and a desperate grab for identity reign. So how does a young person answer these critical questions? Where do young men and women find their significance, worth, and value?
True Identity is perfect for parents and youth workers to give to the teenagers (14-16) in their lives to help them in their journey. Drawing on experiences and wisdom from a wide array of experts, the book provides compassionate answers to help teens discover who they really are, emphasizing their identity in Christ above all other ways our culture defines them. As the book walks teens through the steps to make their faith their own, it highlights healthy independence and God-honoring relationships.
My Thoughts: Teen years can be rough! I know for me, it was a lot of growing that had more than it’s share of pains to go with it. So when I was offered the chance to review the book thanks to the publisher I immediately agreed. The book is divided into five sections that bring up topics that are important to todays young teenagers. This is a great “Who Am I” book.
