Radically Different by best-selling author Champ Thornton is an insightful guide for middle and high school students who want to live radically even though life and relationships are complicated. By examining life through the biblical lenses of Creation, Fall, and Redemption, readers can explore how God's Word untangles the twists of life.
There are so many areas of life to navigate when growing up, and this practical resource full of biblical wisdom helps middle and high school students find encouragement in the everyday challenges of life.
God made everything, including relationships, to be good. But because of the fall, everything—including relationships with parents, friends, and siblings—are also broken. Christ came to make all things new, and because of this biblical perspective, readers of Radically Different can know with clarity they are set apart as unique.
Thornton invites teenagers to consider how they are set apart—especially in a time when Christianity is more and more culturally marginalized. He guides them to embrace what it means to live Christianly in a morally murky and increasingly hostile world.
Radically Different helps teenagers live in and relate to the reality of good, bad, and new, which makes us radically human, radically biblical, and radically different.
My thoughts: I love how this guide is set up to help young people with topics that are important to them, setting up a good foundation at the beginning and then building on it with thoughts about friends and parents, a relationship with God, talking to God, and other important thoughts. Set up with the parts for the student, then a section with each for the teacher, this book is an excellent tool to use to help students balance their walk with God.
I received this book from New Growth. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
