Bible Smuggling 101 tell your Y.M. about this one!
Another keeper for me. Well no not actually I need a new copy! I already gave mine away.
This is an amazing little book. I was so impressed with it that I gave my copy to a boy at the prison where I work. And, He loved it
he asked me "Miss is it o.k. if I write in it?" You probably know my answer!
It was a little humerous he asked that because that is exactly what the book is about. Kids, students writing their impressions of the contents. The book takes you litterally on a quick journey through the Bible explaining God's promises and leading the non-believer to a relationship with Christ.
Litterally the book is meant for students to 'smuggle' into school.
Here's the info. from the publishers website:
The Life Book Movement is best described to students as a week-long mission trip to their local high school. Local churches work together in targeted areas to ensure The Life Book is offered to every student in each chosen high school. All churches involved receive the books at no cost from The Life Book Movement and provide the books, along with some evangelism training, to the students in their youth groups. The students then spend a week passing them out to their friends and classmates at school. One student who received the book said, “I got one today. I read it in almost every class today. I like it. It’s pretty neat and other people asked to look at it and then asked where to get one.”
The Life Book’s unique design engages searching high school students with the truth of God’s Word as they are introduced to Jesus Christ. Using an interactive format with honest student comments and real-life questions in the margins, readers are drawn into the only story that can change their lives forever.
For this reader I have to say they have accomplished their mission!
The only negative that I can say it is not available in retail stores.
The only way you can get it is if your church desides to do a 'saturation'.
You can go to the website to find out more about a 'saturation'. Go check it out and tell your Pastor and Youth Minister!
