My 7 Favorite Books For Christian Tweens And Teens

Our tweens and teens face many challenges and temptations in today’s world. We need to give them good Biblical teaching to help them navigate the temptations that they will face, as well as prepare them to handle relationships in a way that is pleasing to God.

Sometimes a good, inspiring book for your Christian tween or teen helps reinforce the teaching you’ve been doing with them.  I want to share some excellent books we used with our kids during those years. If you’re wondering, my tweens/teens enjoyed these books and even shared some of them with friends. That’s what I consider a good book — good Biblical teaching that is appealing to their age group!

 The Purity Principle – God’s Safeguards for Life’s Dangerous Trails

Some people have given up on purity. Some have never tried.

Bestselling author Randy Alcorn shows us why, in this culture of impurity, the stakes are so high—and what we can do to experience the freedom of purity. Impurity will always destroy us; purity always leads to higher pleasures! Choose wisely. Let the insights of this amazing book—written for old and young, married and single—help you gain your footing on the path to truly lasting joy.

The Teenage Years of Jesus Christ (a favorite Christian book for middle schoolers)

This is a great book to have your Christian pre-teens or teens read to discover the priorities of Jesus Christ when He was a teenager here on earth. It will help them to see if they are focusing on the same things and if their priorities are right. Parents should read this book too! We all follow some pattern when rearing our children. What better master plan than the plan of the Master?

This life-transforming and thought-provoking 126-page book by Pastor Jerry Ross introduces six priorities of the teenage years of Jesus Christ found in Luke 2:52. It makes for some great discussions with your tweens or teens and gives them some Biblical goals for being like Jesus.

The Twenty One Tenets of Biblical Masculinity

Biblical masculinity has all but disappeared in our modern-day culture. Satan has systematically targeted the tenets of Biblical manhood, eliminating them one by one from our society. The void left has been filled with a carnal, corrupt, and confusing idea of what true masculinity really is. The 21 Tenets of Biblical Masculinity presented in this booklet brings scriptural clarity and sound conviction on a subject too long ignored. -Jerry L. Ross

The Twenty One Tenents of Biblical Feminity

Biblical femininity has all but disappeared in our modern-day culture. Satan has systematically targeted the tenets of Biblical womanhood, eliminating them one by one from our society. The void left has been filled with a carnal, corrupt and confusing idea of what true femininity really is. The 21 Tenets of Biblical femininity presented in this booklet brings scriptural clarity and sound conviction on a subject too long ignored. -Jerry L. Ross

Love, Honor, & Virtue – Gaining or Regaining a Biblical Attitude Toward Sexuality

Love, Honor, and Virtue: Gaining or Regaining A Biblical Attitude Toward Sexuality is written to and for teens and twenty-something guys. It’s short, concise, and very direct.

It gives a Biblical perspective to help:

  • Understand God’s design, from biology to morality
  • Prepare to fight temptation
  • Find hope for recovery if they stumble
  • Learn how to have healthy, Christ-honoring relationships with girls

In a world where sin comes looking for you, and the red light district rides in your shirt pocket, you need help engaging the fight as it actually is!

Just Friends: Guarding Your Heart for a Wonderful Someday

What is this thing between guys and girls? Do we call it Dating? Attraction? Interest? We all know it’s there, but no one really knows what to call it, and for some strange reason, everyone is afraid to talk about it! So what do you call it? You’ve probably said it. ‘We’re just friends!’ Sometimes you mean it; sometimes you mean something a little stronger, but a bit harder to define.

Whatever you call it, it’s time to understand a reasonable and biblical approach to guy/girl relationships. This book will help you protect your heart as you journey through the dangerous minefields of young emotions and early attractions. And it will help you understand the biblical principles that will ultimately lead you to true love and a ‘wonderful someday.

Stay in the Castle!

STAY IN THE CASTLE is the story of a young lady who finds herself at a crossroads. One road is marked, “My will”. The other, “God’s will”. An inspirational true story of one teenager’s struggle to wait for the one God had created for her. 

There you have it Mom! Whether you’re looking for “the best books for your 13 or 14-year-old” or “what a good Christian book is for your tween or teen” we’ve got you covered! The best part of this is your kids don’t have to take only your word on these subjects, they can learn to navigate this season well with a little backup from one of these books. I highly recommend getting them some help from any of these 7 Favorite Books For Christian Tweens And Teens!
