A 30-day devotional journal for junior and senior highers-for small groups or private use Discipleship means being like the Big Twelve disciples, right? But, says author Mike Yaconelli, when you read the Gospels and Acts at face value, the disciples weren't always on top of things. In fact, the disciples were clueless, selfish, erratic, inconsistent, and faithless at least half the time. But Jesus loved them and used them all the more for it. Yaconelli scrubs away centuries of sentimental buildup and shows 21st century teens that there's hope for them, too. This thirty-day journal takes teens on an adventure through thirty character traits that are all marks of a disciple, things like fear, boldness, fearlessness, laziness, weakness, sensitivity, brokenness, alienation, hunger, immaturity, strength, and preparedness. Each daily reading includes an event from Scripture, a pointed description of that day's disciple's trait, a teenager's first-person commentary, the obvious and not-so-obvious truth lesson, Scripture references for extra reading on the trait, and questions that invite kids to ponder and write their own application related to their experience.
