Don't Check Your Brains at the Door by McDowell & Hostetler

Don't Check Your Brains at the Door: Know What You Believe and Why by Josh McDowell and Bob Hostetler is a great book for teens with questions, doubts, and many misconceptions about Jesus. It helps you understand the faith you live and know what you believe and why.

I was a little disappointed by this book because I thought it would tackle questions about creationism and evolution. Instead, it was mainly focused on myths about God, the Bible, Jesus, Christianity, the resurrection, and life and happiness.

I think a new Christian would benefit from this book a lot. A kid who grew up in church like me might get some much from it because they've heard it all before. I liked the quick "Brain Food" sections at the end of each chapter. It gave you Bible verses to look up yourself which I think is great. Too many kids read what everyone else thinks about the Bible and what the Bible says without checking it out for themselves.

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
