Genres That Change Lives, Part 2
As a youth minister and writer, I pay close attention to what teens are reading. In recent years, blockbuster hits such as Harry Potter and Twilight have exploded onto the scene, drawing teenage fans by the millions, from all walks of life, including Christian youth. These novels have spurred much debate within the church community. In my congregation, this controversy prompted many parents to seek my recommendation on similar novels for their teens—books that support their Christian worldview and morals.
