  1. I have a question for you if you wouldn’t mind taking a moment to respond. Could you please tell me if you would recommend The Game by Terry Schott to Christian young people, and how reading this book lines up with Philippians 4:8. Question submitted by parents of teens

    1. Thanks for your question. I am actually only a little ways into the book, so I haven’t formed an opinion yet. I’ll see what I think when I finish and have a better understanding of the story and any world view it presents. It’s a work of fiction, so I am reading with that in mind, but I am interested to see where things go.
      Blessings,

    2. I’m a christian teen and I personally loved the book. It got my head spinning and I connected it a bit with what Philippians 4:8 says as well as possible circumstances where God was once again found when he was thought to be lost. I started wondering if it was going to turn into a story about how the world came to find Christ from an unlikely circumstance.

    1. Hey Jimmy! It’s my nightstand book, so it’s one I’ve just been chipping away at. Just over 1/2 way through, and so far no fireworks or anything extraordinary. It’s his diary from when he was younger, and thus far it’s all pre-conversion. I’ve noted a few times when he comments on spiritual matters, and I am interested to see how those seeds of thought and conversations play into his journey from atheism to Christianity, but other than that, it’s just his everyday life stuff. As a journaler myself, I am glad to see the ordinary and routine and mundane of his life. Gives me hope that I am on the right track.
