I fell in love with Marty Machowski’s writing for kids, youth, and parents when I was working on designing a curriculum for a church in Raleigh 7 years ago. And I’m still influenced by how he handles the Gospel to others. Whether its kids or teens or parents, any body can benefit from his writing.
His use of the Gospel and application and getting to the heart of the matter and correct theology – is all important parts of his writing.
And how hard is sin to explain to teens? When lives are hard, emotions run deep, friendships are off and on, hormones are raging, parenting relationships can be difficult. In his new book, Dragon Seed, Marty does a really good job using his sanctified imagination to explain sin, how it cuts us to the core, and how spiritual warfare is a real thing.
The Gospel is so crucial to that and the empty tomb wins though.
This would be a great book for parents to read with their pre-teen sons, I think especially sons. Maybe a good one for Dads and sons to read together or go on a weekend trip to discuss.
Thanks Litfuse for a chance to read this book. All opinions are my own.
