If you are the parent of or work with angry, difficult teenagers I highly commend Rick Horne’s Get Outta My Face! Biblical wisdom and practical experience combine to make this a most useful and God-glorifying resource. Here is how Horne opens the book:

Here’s a fact.

Angry, unmotivated, and disinterested teens, whether Christian or not, are confused, insecure, and often blind to everything except what they want right now. Their desires and actions have been corrupted and polluted by sin. That’s why they have a problem.

Here’s another fact.

Angry, unmotivated, and disinterested teens, whether Christian or not, are made in the image of God. This means that beneath their corrupted desires and actions the image of God remains. That’s the key to solving their problem.

Far from dismissing or sugar-coating sin, this approach opens wide the door to evangelizing the unsaved teen and to helping the Christian teen grow in holiness and wisdom. This book will teach you how to build a bridge to young adults on the basis of the ways in which their desires and actions reflect the image of God and the blessing of common grace.

  1. This is a book that my parents could have used while raising me. So it’s probably also a book I’ll need when I have kids.
