I just finished the book Wild Grace by Max Lucado (adapted for teens by James Lund) and it took me less than 24 hours to finish, if that tells you anything. I love Max Lucado but this is one of his books that I can see myself handing over to a youth group member. I can see our youth group members taking the time to read this one, simply because it will keep their attention.
There are short sections with scripture and an easy-to-read style of writing which I am accustomed to reading when I open a Max Lucado book. Then there are a couple of short, thought-provoking questions: ("What's the biggest problem you're dealing with right now? Do you have a plan to solve it? Where does God fit into this picture?") There are stories from other teens and adults that are interesting to read and serve a purpose in the book.
The book is fairly short and you can tell it is geared toward a teen's attention span. I believe teens will get a lot out of this book and they will not feel it is a chore to read it. I am taking this to our church library the next time I'm at church and I will encourage all people to read it - whether teen, young adult, or an elder.
I received this book free from the publisher through the
BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to
write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
