Give teenagers a guilt-free, creative, up-close look at materialism--one that strips away the subversive, dangerous messages of consumer society. You'll see authentic, lasting change in teeenagers as they tear out pages (you read that right--this book is slowly destroyed by readers) to use in unexpected Jesus-centered activities.
What makes this resource so powerful is that there's no preaching...no finger-pointing...just an honest, authentic journey from a dark place of depending on things to the light of depending on Jesus...and only Jesus.
This book is for teenagers...but adults will want one, too.
What this resource offers...
64 daily devotions and activities--no two the same, no two predictable. This book holds the interest of readers because it speaks straight to their souls...and it tweaks their imaginations.
A Jesus-centered view of the world. There's no message here that owning things is bad. Jesus owned stuff. What sets him aside from the average teenager (apart from the Son of God thing) is that Jesus' stuff never owned him.
Freedom--because once readers form a biblical view of material possessions, they'll find freedom in what they own...what they choose to give away...and how they use possessions.
Bonus: In addition to just materialism, this book deals with other related obstacles that interfere with a depending faith in Jesus: and unhealthy fear of death, a warped view of sex, and a self-image more connnected to what you have than who God has made you.
