Gates & Fences: Straight Talk in a Crooked World (Paperback)
In a "crooked world," Christian author Lori Wagner offers insight to youths and singles. Unique in its blend of humor, personal stories and solid biblical teaching, Wagner's direct approach engages readers, compelling them to consider guidelines as a source of blessing and protection. Highly recommended by pastors, teachers and parents, "Gates & Fences" reaches into the real world of teens and singles. "This book is rubber-meets-the-road Christianity," says Wagner. "Biblical principles have to connect with our everyday lives if God's people are going to mature and become all they can be in Him." Encouraging young people to pursue God's best, Wagner describes biblical guidelines such as submission to authority and modesty as "fences" and "gates" as the ways people interact with guidelines, such as dating practices and entertainment choices. Each chapter concludes with prayer, Q&A and a journaling page.
