Description of The Revolt:
Josh McDowell's Beyond Belief message is the foundation to launch a spiritual revolution among youth. This is a revolution to equip churches and families to raise up a generation of the cross--young people who have been transformed by Christ and the cross, who are empowered to live crossgrain to the culture and are committed to share Christ across all cultures. Sixteen stand-alone products make up an entire family of resources that churches need to launch a church-wide revolution. These products are directed to every age group from 5 to 105, and help equip church groups and families with the tools to lead their children and youth to become transformed, passionate followers of Christ. Combining a powerful message and compelling video illustrations, this series is the centerpiece of inciting the CrossCulture Revolution within a youth group. Each interactive session builds one upon another until youth are brought face to face with the compelling evidence--Christ is God in human form that came to transform them from death to new life.
Description of Josh Mcdowell, author of The Revolt:
Studies reveal that in the last twelve months 74 percent of our churched young people cheated on tests, 83 percent lied to teachers, and 93 percent lied to parents. That is only a 2 percent difference from their non-Christian friends. And 64 percent of our kids believe that "if people are generally good or do enough good things for others in life, they will earn a place in heaven.""A relationship with Christ is about a transformation from death to life that radically affects a person's attitudes and actions--changing that person into a passionate follower of Christ."RON LUCEThe Revolt enables you to lead your young people to understand who Jesus Christ is, why he came to earth, and how a transformed relationship with him makes them part of the CrossCulture. Equipped with this comprehensive Leader's Guide and the Student Workbook with group and daily sessions, you will lead your young people to discover:The need to revolt against the cheap substitutes that the world calls "the good life".How Christ and his cross are the only hope in life.Evidence that proves Christ is real and can transform lives.Why an intimate relationship with Christ involves a total surrender and daily cross of sacrifice.Jesus said, "If any of you wants to be my follower, you must put aside your selfish ambitions, shoulder your cross daily, and follow me" (Luke 9:23, NLT). By guiding your students through these eight group sessions, along with their individual take-home assignments, you will be challenging them to become part of a culture of the Cross that will forever change their lives.
