About the Book:
The Life Book is uniquely designed to help searching high school students experience the Word of God and be introduced to Jesus Christ. Using an interactive format with engaging student comments and real-life questions in the margins, readers are drawn into the only story that can change their lives forever.
Founded by The Gideons International as an innovative strategy to reach high school students with God’s Word, The Life Book Movement works through churches and their students to saturate high schools with God’s Word. The Life Book Movement is best described as a week-long mission trip in which high school students get the opportunity to offer the gift of The LIfe Book to their classmates during school.
The Life Book’s unique design engages searching high school students with the truth of God’s Word as they are introduced to Jesus Christ. Using an interactive format with honest student comments and real-life questions in the margins, readers are drawn into the only story that can change their lives forever.
Working through local churches, The Life Book Movement provides free copies of The Life Book to Christian students to give to classmates during school. Because it is legal for students to distribute religious literature in public schools, this unique approach provides an opportunity for churches and youth ministries to get God’s Word in the hands of every student in every high school they serve.
With Saturations scheduled throughout the United States, the end goal is to eventually place God’s Word in the hands of 17.5 million high school students
What an awesome idea! The book is geared towards grabbing a teenagers attention and it most certainly did. It is relevant, interactive and easy to comprehend. Great concept and great execution making the books free to churches. Carl Blunt was truly inspired by God with this idea. I believe it’s a winner and having devoured the book myself I will be happy to recommend it to my church body!
