Quit Playing with Fire: It's Time to Get Serious about the Issues Facing Teens Today

by Ron Luce




In Quit Playing with Fire, Ron Luce lets teens in on the plan: Jesus wants to give you a meaningful, fun-filled life. Christianity isn't for weak people and nerds. It's not boring and strict. It's for the totally sold-out, radical people who are smart enough to realize that while the devil has many paths to destruction, Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. When you Quit Playing with Fire, you'll see how to cope with sexual questions, drug traps, fights with your parents, and more. You'll find out it's cool to be a Christian.
