Book Review: Answers Book 4 Teens Vol. 1

Author(s): Bodie Hodge, Tommy Mitchell, with Ken Ham
Publisher: Master Books
Ages: 14+
Page Count: 95
Format: Softcover
Overall Rating: 3 stars

The Answers Book 4 Teens is a great resource that offers basic, hardcore facts surrounding Biblical Christianity and Creationism.  Written in straight forward and simple language, the book steers itself towards the more secular and worldly teens searching for answers a midst great darkness.  Topics discussed include the age of the earth, world population, reliability of the Bible and more.
 As I was reading this book I must confess to being a bit disappointed.  I was looking for something that had more "meat" to it- more in depth apologetics, archaeological discoveries, scientific evidences for Creation.  It felt as though I was being spoken down to, as though everything needed to be explained to me in little words.  For example, "according to the genealogies (those lists with all the 'begat' words)".  Now, nothing is wrong with that- necessarily. (I do believe that teenagers should be able to understand what a genealogy is without any one explaining it to them.)
  However,  I believe that this book would make an excellent resource for a more secular or worldly teen looking for answers- especially one that is unsaved! Large graphics and images, as well as interesting styling and small amounts of words per page lend itself to an appealing and "readable" book for the average teen.

  I do want to mention though, if you are a young person that has been in the faith for a few years- has been raised by Christian parents and perhaps even home schooled, there is not much of a reason for you to read this book simply based on the fact that it is not aimed towards you as an audience and you may already know everything that it has to say.  A much better thing for you to read if you would like more in-depth looks at Creation Science and Christian Apologetics is the Answers Books 1, 2, & 3.  

I received this book at no charge from New Leaf Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
