Book Review: Transformed by Truth

Posted by Andrew Deligiorgakis on

Teenagers are underestimated in the church. Even if they’re fed with solid biblical teaching at youth group, we don’t always teach them to feed themselves from the Word. We assume they won’t understand the deep things of God—or don’t want to try.
