Firsthand is a book about growing up and taking responsibility for one’s own faith. The Shook brothers include quotes from many young people to illustrate how one takes the step from following the faith of a parent to owning a personal faith in Jesus Christ. Faith that is “secondhand” will not withstand the storms of life, as many young people learn when they leave the safety of home and youth group.
This book is recommended for young adults and those who love them. Read the first chapter here.
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher, Waterbrook-Multnomah, for my review.
