Grown Up Faith by Kevin Myers with Charlie Wetzel

This is a good book for someone with questions about Christianity or a new Christian with little Bible knowledge. The title refers more to responsible rather than mature Christianity. Myers is a story teller and this would be a good book for people who like to learn new concepts in the framework of story. He also uses movies as examples so this book might appeal to readers familiar with contemporary culture.

Myers answers questions by taking readers through an overview of the Bible. He includes how the mind requires biblical knowledge, the heart requires spiritual intimacy, and the will requires holy obedience for each topic covered. He has questions at the end of each chapter and encourages journaling.

There is an opportunity for the reader to accept Jesus as Savior in the latter part of the book so this would be a good book to give to those asking questions about Christian faith. Myers' writing is very conversational in style and nonthreatening.
