Some young people today are indifferent about the Christian faith because they don't identify with anyone in Scripture or in their church. Others are excited about the faith and hungry for role models to show them how to pursue their ideals. Extreme Faith, a book created for the Extreme for Jesus line, addresses both needs.
Faith is a collection of fresh, youth-oriented character studies that show
readers what a difference young people made in Bible times. This book devotes a
chapter to each character profile, telling stories of amazing Bible characters
such as Isaac, Esther, and Josiah in detail and showing how today's youth can
follow their examples and make a difference in their world. Includes snapshot
profiles of modern young people whose lives are extreme for Jesus.
