Growing up is about a Christian teenage boy called Ben. We see him facing up to the difficulties of being a Christian in a hostile world. Although a work of fiction, this book helpfully conveys some of the key issues for the 11-15 age group.
This is the story of Ben. Ben is a teenage boy, growing up and confronting issues that Christian young people will face living in this often hostile world. In this book you will follow Ben as a ten-year-old having to deal with the serious illness of his grandfather; as a twelve-year-old dealing with playing sport on a Sunday; and as a sixteen-year-old witnessing to friends of a different religion; as well as a number of other situations that reflect what it means to be growing up as a young Christian today. Peter Jeffery is well known for his ability to present concepts in clear and simple language. In nine short, concise chapters he skilfully uses the character of Ben to help young Christians consider how they should react to the various events that occur in Ben's life. This booklet provides a challenging read for today's Christian teenagers who are so often bombarded with conflicting answers to very real issues but who seek to live their lives based on the Bible.
Peter Jeffery began his ministry in Cwmbran, South Wales, before serving Rugby Evangelical Free Church in the Midlands during a period of remarkable growth and then moving to the famous Bethlehem Church in Sandfields. Now retired, he continues to be in demand as a gospel preacher on both sides of the Atlantic.
