"Don't Check Your Brains at the Door" by Josh McDowell & Bob Hostetler

“Seven in 10 Protestants ages 18 to 30—both evangelical and mainline—who went to church regularly in high school said they quit attending by age 23, according to the survey by LifeWay Research.” (USA Today)

Don’t Check Your Brains at the Door gives teens answers that make sense, even for the toughest of questions. Internationally known defender of the faith Josh McDowell and co-author Bob Hostetler offer clarity laced with humor to expose common myths about God, the Bible, religion, and life to show how Christianity stands up to the test of fact and reason. Teens will be better equipped to stick with their faith as they begin to understand why they believe and why it’s important to make a lifetime commitment to Christ and the church.

The book, "Don't Check Your Brains at the Door" was a book that was created with teens in mind. These days, so many teenagers have a lot of different questions when it comes to God, religion, and who created what. This book was created to try and target those teens with questions, and get those questions answered in a very fun and biblical way. The book is broken up into bite-size chapters that cover topics such as: Myths about God, Myths about Jesus, Myths about the Bible, Myths about the Resurrection, Myths about Religion and Christianity, and Myths about Life and Happiness. For me personally though, this book was really hard to read through from cover to cover. I would say that if you have a lot of questions, pick up this book at the library and scan through to the sections that you may be wondering about. But I think when this book really comes down to it, it would not really be worth buying. It has good intentions, but I found myself getting annoyed with the layout and just wanting to set the book down. Overall, I would give this book a 3 out of 5 though, because the book was informative, just needed a different way of presenting the information covered.
