Solid—and lively—Catholic resources for teenagers to use to
explore the Bible are rare. Gospel Connections for Teens is the
exception. Written for (and with the help of) young Christians who
want to discover the meaning of the Scriptures for their lives, this
book of guided reflections on the Sunday readings is just right.
By Laurie Brink, OP, assistant professor of biblical studies, Catholic Theological Union, Chicago
Gospel Connections for Teens does what its title promises: it bridges the divide between the world of the Gospel and the reality of teen life in the United States. Father Corey's clear writing and dead-on reflections make this an excellent tool for young people who want to steer their lives in a meaningful direction. It is also a ready-made resource for youth group leaders and Catholic high school teachers charged with the responsibility of guiding, encouraging, and inspiring teens in the way of the Gospel.
Midwest Book Review, May, 2007
Written by Corey Brost, a priest with the Clerics of Saint Viator, Gospel Connections for Teens: Reflections for Sunday Mass, Cycle C is a guide meant to help Christian teens prepare for Sunday Mass. Divided into sections consisting of a Gospel passage, a plain-terms discussion of the passage, and questions for reflection. Each section can be absorbed in 20 minutes or less, making Gospel Connections for Teens ideal for young Christians trying to keep up with a hectic schedule. "If a word or phrase from the Gospel grabs your heart, sit quietly for several minutes, repeating it to yourself and asking God to show you how it applies to your life. Or, reflect and possibly journal on the following question: Does your fear of failure ever stop you from taking risks for your faith?" Though intended especially for Catholic teens, Gospel Connections for Teens is a superb spiritual resource for Christian readers of all ages, and its broad selection of Gospel insights is sure to appeal to Christians of any denomination.
