Why I write Bible studies:
I believe the young teen years are pivotal in a child's spiritual development. At this age the world begins to compete strongly for students' attention and they are influenced as much by the screens they watch as by the words they hear.
Many adults remember specific moments in early adolescence when a person in the church made a real impression.
Young people want to know the stories they learned in Sunday School really do hold up in the world of grown-ups. They need guided in-depth studies to help them verify the truth of the Bible.
Perhaps more than a good Bible study, young people need committed adults willing to share their faith and knowledge. To that end, these studies are great for adults, too. Anyone wanting to gain some solid understanding of God's Word will benefit.
So I write these studies with a prayer that many young teens will discover the wonders of God's Word for themselves, and will decide to love and serve the Lord with their whole hearts. I continue to pray for adult Christians to step out in courage to "tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord." Psalm 78:4
