Winning Spirit, The

Lu, Alfred

What it is: Chris Hill, youth pastor for The Potter’s House in Dallas, Texas, offers inspirational insights about how to teach teenagers to lead winning lives.

The scoop: Like a rolling sermon, the author expounds on the factors that help young people to create winning situations and attitudes, and he also analyzes the reasons kids sometimes make losing decisions. Hill draws on his many years of youth ministry experience and uses biblical examples to support his points. Saying that someone’s a “winner” for overcoming obstacles isn’t a fresh idea, but Hill writes with forceful passion and unending faith. The book is an easy read-perfect for those times when you’re dealing with a difficult teenager or when you just need inspiration.

Cost: $16.99
