Book Review: Don’t Check Your Brains at the Door

Don’t Check Your Brains at the Door
Josh McDowell & Bob Hostetler

There are huge numbers of teens raised in Christian homes that don’t really understand why their parents believe the things they do; until they start to question things on their own they tend to just believe what their parents believe without knowing why. This book aims to answer questions that may arise and help teens discover the understanding behind Christian world views and beliefs. McDowell and Hostetler want to encourage teens to really understand and develop a connection with their beliefs and really be able to make sense of it all. Without this understanding, it’s all just going through the motions.

This book is full of great points for anyone who wants to better understand Christianity and their relationship with God. Each chapter tackles a key concept and is presented in a way that is easy to understand. At the end of each chapter is a section called Brain Food that challenges the reader to examine the Bible for themselves. Rather than just present a bunch of information, the book really helps the reader to interact with Bible and do some critical thinking about what is presented.  I would recommend this book to anyone who has questions about Christianity and why Christians hold the beliefs they do.

This book can be found at Amazon and Barnes and Noble, as well as many other retailers.
