Parents, youth pastors, and Christian educators often know what they want to accomplish with their students, but they don’t always have the practical steps on how to get there. Or, if they do, they could always use some more help. I definitely know this felling as a high school teacher.

Well, Dr. Sean McDowell and J. Warner Wallace have come together to write a practical resource for this very reason. Their new book, So The Next Generation Will Know: Preparing Young Christians for a Challenging Worldview, clearly lays out the steps needed to adequately address the issues facing the next generation. Each chapter is loaded with insights, tips, and questions to spur conversations with students. This book is a “must have” for anyone working with students.

I hope you enjoy the interview this week with Sean McDowell, an associate professor in the Christian Apologetics program at Biola University. Preorder the book at here before May 1st to get additional resources for free!
