Pressure Points Review
This humorous, poignant, and conversational guide invites young men and women to practically apply gospel solutions to all of lifes pressures, big or small. From navigating failure, roadblocks, and spiritual warfare to tackling relevant, hard-hitting topics such as drinking, sex, dating, pornography, and the fear of missing out, Pressure Points by Shelby Abbott encourages college students to consider Jesus in the midst of everyday struggles. With twenty years of experience in college ministry, Shelby Abbott is keenly aware of the pressures young men and women face. Used for biblical reflection, group discussion, devotional reading, or large group Bible study discussion, Pressure Points is full of rich gospel hope for all readers. This flexible resource points to Scripture and Abbotts funny, easily digestible reflections to help modern-day college students maneuver their early years toward the gospel, challenging young adults to see their struggles through a biblical lens. By addressing relevant challenges and practical hardships with gospel advice, Pressure Points guides readers to see and lean on the person of Jesus, reflecting on important issues in light of the gospel. From waiting on the Lord with patience, learning to fellowship with him in his sufferings, to wrestling with purpose, relationships, and the growing challenges of todays culture, Pressure Points is a timely and refreshing voice for young people pointing to a bottomless pit of grace.
My thoughts: Even though my kids are young yet, I have already thought how much the world has changed since I was a teen and in college until now, making me wonder how much it will change between now and when my kids are teenagers. That's why books like this one, Pressure Points, are so necessary. I love how this book tackles a lot of issues that have popped up as technology has exploded, lack of true relationships and self conscience. I highly recommend this book from students and parents alike!
