Young people today are faced with many challenges that attempt to lure them away from the truth of Scripture and their foundation of faith. Dr. Moody shares strong advice with parents on the need to prepare young people to make wise decisions while navigating the culture of today. He supports his points with relevant facts and current statistics. He also shows how the culture Daniel faced in Old Testament times correlates with some of the same trials teens face today. Daniel and his companions faced unbelievable pressure to compromise their faith while living in a corrupt culture. They not only survived but thrived and had a real impact on the world around them. Dr. Moody shares how young people today can do the same and how parents can guide teens along the way.
