Ryan and Josh Shook. Firsthand: Ditching Secondhand Religion for a Faith of Your Own. Colorado Springs, Colo.: Waterbrook Press, 2013. 208 pages. $17.99.
Written by two brothers, sons of a preacher, this book challenges nominal Christians to make their faith their own — not their parents’, not their friends’. A free website, DVD series for sale and discussion questions with action points at the end of each chapter make it suitable for a college and young professionals study.


Mark Gregston. Tough Guys and Drama Queens: How Not to Get Blindsided by Your Child’s Teen Years. Nashville, Tenn.: Thomas Nelson, 2012. 240 pages. $15.99.
Today’s teen culture is radically different from the one in which parents came of age, argues Gregston, founder and director of a counseling center for teens. A new paradigm is needed — one that relies on communication and trust and fosters independence.


J. Warner Wallace. Cold-Case Christianity: A Homicide Detective Investigates the Claims of the Gospels. Colorado Springs, Colo.: David C. Cook. 288 pages. $16.99. 
Using 10 principles essential to cold-case investigations, Wallace leads readers on his journey from atheism by examining evidence for Jesus being the murdered and risen Son of God. His honest assessment led him to the conclusion that the Gospels are true.
