Jacket Description/Back:
We live in a society that rejects the idea of absolute truth and is openly hostile toward God. For young men who want to become more like Christ, going through adolescence in this culture can be like crossing a minefield.
Written in a fifteen-minutes-per-day devotion style, Checkpoints plots a course that will challenge you to recognize, resist, and carefully avoid the snares and ambushes set by the Enemy. You can use this biblically based eight-week guide on your own or with a group of other guys who may be experiencing the same things you are, such as isolation, addiction, fear, and anger.
Learn practical strategies to ground you in truth, grow your faith, and help you develop into a man who walks with God daily.
Discussion and application questions are included each week for personal reflection and to help facilitate a group dialogue.
