5 Life-Changing Books Every Young Christian Should Read

When I was a teen, I remember my mom bringing me a buying me tons of different Christian books. At first, I wasn’t too excited but once I dived in the truths that illuminated the pages they struck me.

Reading, for me, has been a huge aspect of strengthening my faith.

That’s a huge reason why I do these monthly book hauls, because I want to be able to point you to some really great, life-changing books..

In this months book haul, I want to point all the teens out there to some awesome, solid Christian books. Of course many of these books are great for older Christians as well, they are very simple reads that I know you’ll enjoy!

1. Just Do Something by Kevin DeYoung

Pastor and bestselling author Kevin DeYoung counsels Christians to settle down, make choices, and do the hard work of seeing those choices through. Too often, he writes, God's people tinker around with churches, jobs, and relationships, worrying that they haven't found God's perfect will for their lives. Or-even worse-they do absolutely nothing, stuck in a frustrated state of paralyzed indecision, waiting... waiting... waiting for clear, direct, unmistakable direction.

2. Do Hard Things by Alex and Brett Harris

Combating the idea of adolescence as a vacation from responsibility, the authors weave together biblical insights, history, and modern examples to redefine the teen years as the launching pad of life.  Then they map out five powerful ways teens can respond for personal and social change. 

3.  True Beauty by Carolyn Mahaney and Nicole Whitacre

In True Beauty, Carolyn Mahaney and her daughter Nicole Whitacre direct us to the truth of God’s Word, where we encounter an entirely different—and refreshingly liberating—standard of beauty. Offering a path to freedom from the false idols that society, the Devil, and our sinful hearts so often create, this encouraging book will help you to exchange the temporary glamour of pop culture for the unfading beauty of godliness.

4. Growing Up Christian by Karl Graustein

Many teens are active in church youth programs, yet drop out of church later in life and never return. Other young adults rest on the merits of their parents' faith without ever experiencing their own relationship with Jesus Christ. In this book, the authors seek to help teenagers who have grown up in Christian homes by reminding them of the blessings of growing up in a Christian home, warning them of some of the dangers they face, providing practical suggestions for avoiding these dangers, and urging them to think and live in a way that pleases God.

5. Lies Young Women Believe by Nancy Demoss Wolgemuth and Dannah Gresh

Ever since Eve, women have been swallowing Satan's lies---and so have their daughters. Best-selling authors DeMoss and Gresh team up to expose twisted messages about God, guys, appearance, and other falsehoods our media-driven culture feeds young women. Their insights will equip your 13- to 19-year-olds to liberate themselves from deception and embrace God's truth
